University of Geneva
Genetics and Evolution
|Workplace||Geneva, Lake Geneva region, Switzerland|
A postdoc position is available in the Department of Genetics and Evolution, University of Geneva, in the group of Prof. Jan Pawlowski.
The position will focus on adapting and developing algorithms and statistical methods for the processing and data mining of high-throughput DNA sequencing data applied to the detection and quantitative assessment of environmental biodiversity responses to pollution in aquatic ecosystems. A part of the position will be dedicated to the maintenance of bioinformatics tools already developed and routinely used in our lab.
Aquatic ecosystems are threatened by the rapid expansion of industrial activities. Solutions could emerge from the development of innovative tools based on the monitoring of biological communities in order to detect and measure the specificity and the magnitude of environmental impacts. Although multiple dimensions of the information delivered by high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies show great promise, many others remain unexplored. Hence, the development of powerful algorithms and robust statistical analyses are required to comprehend and fully exploit patterns of biodiversity changes and ensure fast and reliable assessments.
We are looking for a highly motivated and autonomous researcher interested in bioinformatics and environmental genomics.
Applicants are expected to have:
A post-doc position (50 to 100%) funded by Swiss National Science Foundation project
To apply, please send an email to Jan Pawlowski (jan.pawlowskiunige.ch)
and Tristan Cordier (tristan.cordierunige.ch)
containing a short letter of motivation, a detailed CV (including a brief description of research interests, previous employments and publication list), and contact details of at least two references (letters of recommendation are optional).
