The Chromosome Dynamics Group is seeking a Post-Doc in Bioinformatics. Using experimental and computational approaches, our ambitious group has a broad interest in genome organization and its influence on gene regulation. We use molecular methods (Hi-C, ChIAPET, ChIP-seq, DNA- methylation analysis and RNA-seq) and computational analysis to investigate the organization of plant chromosomes. Recent work has shown that a set of chromatin proteins are functionally important for the looping of regulatory elements at individual genes as well as global chromosome structure. The full- time position is immediately available. The appointee will be supervised by Dr. Moussa BENHAMED.
The position is funded for at least 2 years. The ideal candidate should have a genomics or computer science based PhD, be highly ambitious and self-motivated, and possess experience in applied bioinformatics, specifically having worked with next-generation sequencing datasets. A solid foundation in statistics, Shell scripting/bash and R language is highly recommended. The post holder will be expected to analyze, integrate and interpret multiple datasets simultaneously (including ChIP- Seq, RNA-Seq and data arising from genome wide 3C-based studies, HiC and ChIAPET). The work will also involve management of the data, application of cutting-edge algorithms, and development of appropriate post-analysis strategies and pipelines Application Procedure: Interested applicants should e-mail Dr. Moussa Benhamed (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a complete professional CV (including educational background, experience, a list of Publications and two recommendation letters). For informal inquires, one may e-mail Sanchari SIRCAR (email@example.com).
