                                       Postdoc Positions in Computational Biology

The Department for Computational Biology of Infection Research Group at HZI is looking for excellent bioinformatics postdocs to work in computational metagenomics and infection research.

We offer:
The lab develops software and algorithms, co-organizes the Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation challenge (CAMI; https://data.cami-challenge.org/), hosts the bioinformatics unit of the German centre for infection research (www.dzif.de) and collaborates locally, nationally and internationally with biologists and medical experts from universities and research institutes. For instance, we recently characterized the root-associated microbiome in barley (Bulgarelli et al. 2015, Cell Host Microbe), developed accurate taxonomic binning software (Dröge et al., 2015, Bioinformatics), and software to study the evolution of influenza viruses from genomic and phenotypic data sets (Klingen et al., in press, Virus Evolution).  Related projects, as well as newly established collaborations, offer plenty of opportunity for an excellent bioinformatics postdoc to shine.

Location:
The department is part of the Helmholtz Center for Infection Research (http://www.helmholtz-hzi.de/), the Braunschweig Integrated Center for System Biology (BRICS) and Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. Braunschweig is a city with a high density of scientific institutions, many parks and recreational areas and about 250.000 residents. It is centrally located within Germany, with shorter train travel times (30 min, 90 min) to Hannover and Berlin.

Equal Opportunities are part of our personnel policy – qualified women are especially invited to apply.

Qualified applicants with a disability will be given preference.

Location:                          Braunschweig (Germany)
 
Starting date:                   as soon as possible
Initial contract for 2 years with possible extensions depending on performance
 
Probation period:            6 months
Salary:                              TVöD E14
 
Published on:                  28.07.2016
Closing date:                   11.09.2016  
 

Requirements:
The candidate should have a PhD degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, statistics or similar and a competitive publication record. A commitment to reproducible research, the ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary research field and very good programming skills are obligatory. Prior experience in meta’omics, infection research, statistical learning or with the analysis of NGS data sets is advantageous, but not required.
 
Contact for questions: Prof. Alice McHardy (please see institute’s web site for contact details).
