The Chromosome Dynamics Group is seeking a Bioinformatician to start as soon as possible.
Using experimental and computational approaches, the group has a broad interest in genome
organization and its influence on gene regulation. We use molecular methods (Hi-C, HiChIP,
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
(Antunez-Sanchez et al., Elife 2020; Kim et al., NAR 2020 ; Concia et al., Genome Biology
2020 ; Huang et al., Genome Research 2021) as well as global chromosome structure. The
full-time bioinformatics position is immediately available. The appointee will be supervised
by Dr. Moussa BENHAMED. The position is funded for at least 3 years. The ideal candidate
should be highly ambitious, self-motivated and possess experience in applied bioinformatics,
specifically having worked with next-generation sequencing datasets. The candidate will also
be expected to have a working knowledge of R and statistics. 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 HiChIP).
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, two recommendation letters and a brief statement of research interests/plans).
