Postdoctoral position in Algorithmic Genomics
Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf
We are looking for a talented, highly motivated postdoc with a strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, genetics, quantitative biology or a related discipline to join the exciting project „Comprehensive and efficient identification of genomic differences from whole-genome alignments“ for 3 years. The successful applicant will join the Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences (CEPLAS) at the University of Düsseldorf in Germany.

Background
Genome sequences are key resources to understand functional processes and divergent trait evolution within and between different species. Within CEPLAS, many high-quality genome assemblies of closely related species of the Brassicaceae and other plant families are being generated. This makes it possible, in principle, to reveal intra-family similarities and structural variations from pairwise whole-genome alignments (WGA) as a major step towards family pangenome representations. However, even though efficient whole-genome alignment solutions exist there are no computational approaches that would annotate all genomic differences including the obvious hierarchy ranging from small single nucleotide changes to large complex rearrangements. The project will therefore extend SyRI, an existing algorithm for genome-wide structural rearrangement identification to solve this efficiently.

Qualifications needed: good algorithmic background, programming skills, knowledge in bioinformatics, Plus: experience with genomic data or plant genomics

Project leaders: Prof. Dr. Gunnar Klau (Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf), Dr. Korbinian Schneeberger (Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research Cologne)

Application process
Qualified candidates should submit their application (cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact info of two references, PhD certificate if already issued) as one singe PDF via e-mail to office@ceplas.de. For full consideration, please apply by September 1. However, the position is available until filled.
