A postdoctoral and an engineer position in bioinformatics / Systems Biology of cell fate decisions (SysFate)


The newly launched SysFate team, driven by Dr. Marco A. Mendoza has two open positions in bioinformatics in the field of functional genomics / systems biology. SysFate is part of the ISSB laboratory (formerly the Institute of Systems and Synthetic Biology) in the unit "metabolic genomics" UMR-8030, which is part of the Genoscope, the French National Sequencing Centre (South of Paris).

1. Bioinformatics engineer position

Job Description:

The position awardee will be responsible for developing computational solutions focused on the analysis of functional genomic readouts, single-cell transcriptomics; gene regulatory networks reconstruction and related.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate will have a recent Ph.D./ MS in bioinformatics, computer science, or related. Essential qualifications include excellent programming skills in languages as Java, Python, Perl and/or R. Experience in next-generation sequencing and related functional genomic data analysis (transcriptomics, ChIP-sequencing, etc) is a strong asset.

Interested applicants should directly contact Marco Antonio Mendoza (marco@igbmc.fr) and provide a CV and any other necessary documents for review (list of relevant publications, letters of support).


2. Postdoctoral fellowship
