    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow -- Bioinformatician / Computational Biologist (#HD_00542) @ EMBL -- Heidelberg, Germany
    Submitted by EMBL Recruitment; posted on Monday, August 18, 2014


    The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).

    It is a highly international multicultural institute, with a very open, collaborative and interactive culture, where the working language is English.

    EMBL is seeking a highly motivated bioinformatician/computational biologist to work in the Furlong group, in the Genome Biology Unit. The position involves contributing to cutting edge data analysis of diverse types of next generation sequencing (NGS) data, and generally supporting people within the group with computational analysis and infrastructure. The successful candidate will contribute to data analyses to examine chromatin state and transcription factor occupancy (using diverse ChIP-Seq experiments), nucleosome positioning (MNase-seq, DNAse1), gene expression (RNA-Seq, 5'-CAGE) and 3-dimensional nuclear structure (using 4C and Hi-C), to address specific biological questions, as well as evaluating and keeping up to date with new software analysis tools.


    Qualifications and Experience:
    Applicants should have PhD in computer science, bioinformatics or biostatistics. Prior experience with analysis of NGS datasets (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, DNA-seq ...), R/bioconductor, scripting languages (eg shell, python) and work in a unix environment is a must. Extensive experience in bioinformatics and statistical analysis of large datasets is required. The candidate should be able to work independently and also interact well within a team environment. The successful applicant will be organized (documentation and communication is an important aspect of the job), open-minded, able to work on different projects in parallel, proactive (problem solving skills are essential) and have a user-oriented spirit. A working knowledge of English is essential.
