2 Bioinformatics postdoctoral researcher positions

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the in silico characterization of candidate adaptive mutations identified in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster. Among others, the tasks involved in the postdoctoral research project include the integration of several genomic datasets obtained in our laboratory: RNA-seq, ChIP-nexus, ChIP-seq for histone marks, ATAC-seq, and HiC.

A PhD in Bioinformatics or a related field, good programming skills, and good writing skills are required. Experience with state-of-the-art approaches to analyze the different genomic techniques used in the lab is required. Previous postdoctoral experience will be considered.
We offer a fulltime position for 2 years with the possibility of extension. Salary will depend on the experience of the candidate. The candidate will join a research team of four postdoctoral students, three PhD students, and a lab technician. Besides lab group meetings, the candidate will also join the Comparative and Computational IBE Research Program meetings. The lab also offers extensive networking opportunities as we are co-leading the European Drosophila Population Genomics Consortium (droseu.net) and the Spanish excellence network in adaptation genomics (adaptnet.es).
Expected starting date is September 2018 but alternative dates can be discussed.

The Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab led by Josefa González is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our research team at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF) in Barcelona, Spain. The postdoctoral researcher will work on a project funded by a European Research Council Consolidator Grant that aims at identifying the genetic basis, the molecular mechanisms, and the functional traits relevant for environmental adaptation.

APPLICATION OPEN
Please send your CV (including the contacts of potential references) and a brief letter of motivation before the 19thJune 2018 to:
josefa.gonzalez@ibe.upf-csic.es

Please include “ERC-Postdoctoral position” in the subject of your e-mail.

Bioinformatics postdoctoral researcher position 2

The Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab led by Josefa González is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our research team at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF) in Barcelona, Spain.

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the in silico characterization of the potential regulatory role of transposable element insertions in natural populations of Anopheles mosquitoes, and in available human genome sequences. Among others, the tasks involved in the postdoctoral research project will be the identification of transcription factor binding motifs and epigenetic marks present in the candidate adaptive insertions, de novo assembly of genome sequences, and de novo transposable element annotation. The postdoctoral researcher will work in close collaboration with a PhD student and a Postdoctoral researcher.

A PhD in Evolutionary Biology or a related field, good programming skills (command line usage, bash scripting), and good writing skills are required. Although not required, genome assembly and genome annotation experience will be considered as well.

We offer a fulltime position for 2 years with the possibility of extension. Salary will depend on the experience of the candidate. The candidate will join a research team of four postdoctoral students, three PhD students, and a lab technician. Besides lab group meetings, the candidate will also join the Comparative and Computational IBE Research Program meetings. The lab also offers extensive networking opportunities as we are co-leading the European Drosophila Population Genomics Consortium (droseu.net) and the Spanish excellence network in adaptation genomics (adaptnet.es).
