In the framework of the newly funded Collaborative Research Centre TRR 305 „Striking a moving target: From mechanisms of metastatic organ colonisation to novel systemic therapies“, we are looking for a

Bioinformatician (m/f/d)

to support project partners in the bioinformatics analysis of omics data.

 

Your tasks will include:

  • setting up and maintaining pipelines for sequencing data analyses (bulk and single-cell RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq, ChIP-Seq);
  • closely interacting with CRC project partners to support post-processing analyses of omics data (e.g. functional enrichment, visualisation and interpretation of results, data integration with publicly available datasets, preparation of publication-ready figures);

Your qualifications:

  • academic degree (MSc/PhD) in bioinformatics, computational or life sciences. A PhD is preferred but not essential.
  • prior experience in the analysis of next-generation sequencing data is advantageous;
  • familiarity with working in a Linux/Unix environment;
  • strong programming skills (e.g. Python, Perl, R);
  • excellent communication skills and fluency in English.

 

The position will initially be available for 4 years, with the possibility of further extension.

 

Applications should be sent to Dr. Fulvia Ferrazzi, Institute of Pathology, FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg (Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!
