Spain: Postdoctoral Position in Structural Genomics 2012

The CNAG started operating in March 2010 with a park of twelve second generation DNA sequencers supported by an extensive informatics infrastructure, becoming one of the major Genome Sequencing Centers in Europe.  
The CNAG is actively involved in collaborative research projects on a number of specific topics:
Disease Gene Identification, Cancer Genomics, Genomics of Infectious Diseases, Model Organism Genomics and Synthetic Biology Genomics of Model Organisms. In addition, we participate in several consortia of networked projects such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium, and EU-funded projects such as READNA, AIRPROM, SYBARIS, ESGI and BLUEPRINT.
The CNAG seeks a talented researcher with a strong background in computation for the Structural Genomics Group working on genome organisation and architecture for the elucidation of genome regulation. This post is funded by a HFSP research grant. The successful candidate will report to the Structural Genomics Group Leader.
- Development and implementation of a physics-based model for chromatin folding.
- Application of structure determination pipelines for CNAG’s collaborative projects.
- Complementation of existing efforts on genome structure determination.
- PhD in Bioinformatics or related field.
- Demonstrated experience in the development of biophysical models of polymers.
- Knowledge of genome organization and chromatin structure would be consider a plus.
- Good publication record.
- Non-permanent contract.
