Whom are we looking for exactly?
We are looking for researchers who have completed their Ph.D. in the past four years, or will complete their Ph.D. soon, who have an ambition to do research on Bioinformatics, in particular developing methods for the analysis of genomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, and metabolomics datasets associated with human health as well as from environmental samples.
Why join us?
The position will initially be for 1 year and can be renewed up to 3 years (in exceptional circumstances up to 5).
The position is open to all applicants from any nationality. International applications are strongly encouraged.
As soon as possible. Applications are accepted until the position is filled.
