Several offers in genetic research


Thanks to Kasia from Scienceprone, for sharing!



We are currently recruiting PhD students and postdocs

to work on a new project funded by the Polish National Science Center within the framework of the MAESTRO programme:

Structural RNomics
 
The main goal of this project is to apply computational and experimental methods to predict and determine RNA 3D structures, and to use the structural information to infer the general rules of RNA evolution. 

The project will involve extensive collaboration between bioinformaticians (data analysts) and experimentalists (biochemists and crystallographers). You will join a well-equipped and well-funded laboratory, whose research bridges the fields of experiment and theory in molecular and structural biology. The project will be carried out in the Bujnicki laboratory in collaboration with the Nowotny laboratory in IIMCB. 
 
We offer the following four positions:
 
MAESTRO-PhD1: PhD student - biochemist/crystallographer

"I hereby give consent for my personal data included in the job offer to be processed for the purposed of recruitment under the Data Protection Act 1997 (Dz. U. 2002 no. 101, item 926 with subs. changes)
." / "Wyrażam zgodę na przetwarzanie danych osobowych w celach rekrutacji zgodnie z ustawą z dnia 29 sierpnia 1997 r. o ochronie danych osobowych (tekst jedn.: Dz U. z 2002 r. Nr 101, poz 926 z późn. zm.)."

We will contact top candidates only, to interview them by email/phone/Skype (in English), and selected candidates will be invited for an interview.

In case no suitable candidate applies before the deadline for a particular position, the search will be extended until a suitable candidate is found.

 


We are currently recruiting a researcher

to join the ERC grant project (funded by the European Commission / European Research Council within the 7th Framework Programme)

RNA+P=123D

The main goal of this interdisciplinary project is to develop new methods for structure characterization of RNAs and RNA-protein complexes. 

The project spans 5 years (2011-2015). It involves collaboration between bioinformaticians (software development and data analysts) and experimentalists (biochemists).

We are currently recruiting a researcher
 
to work on a project within the framework of a newly accepted 7FP grant in the REGPOT programme

The main goal of this project is to develop methods for structure modeling of RNAs and RNA-protein complexes, with a particular focus on macromolecular design and on the prediction of effect of mutations on protein/RNA/RNP structural stability, and the impact of single residue substitutions in proteins and RNAs on the function of these macromolecules on the biochemical, cellular and organismal level (i.e. up to the level whether given mutations may cause a disease or not).

We offer the following position:

FP-postdoc1: senior postdoctoral researcher-programmer
This positions starts in December 20012 (in case of a delayed start, the period of employment may be shortened)
Application deadline: September 30, 2012
Salary (contract/"umowa o prace", up to 3 years)
: 3000 Euro/month total cost = approx. 8000 PLN/month after taxes depending on the Euro/PLN rate.
 
The senior postdoctoral researcher is supposed to be an experienced bioinformaticist/software deloper. We will consider only candidates who have experience in the development of bioinformatics software and good understanding of molecular structures. The successful candidate will be responsible for taking over an already running project focused on the development of RNA, protein, and protein-RNA complex prediction methods (based on coarse graining and statistical potentials) and contributing towards its further development and application in RNA/protein design and prediction of effects of mutations on structure and function. The software is written mostly in C/C++ and Python.
Apart from research, additional tasks will include supervising junior programmers (undergraduate and PhD students) and contributing to the unification of software development in the lab. Postdocs who intend to become independent group leaders (outside of IIMCB) in the next step of their career are particularly encouraged to apply.

 
  • essential: PhD in computational, natural of life sciences; extensive experience in software development documented by peer-reviewed publications, very good programming skills (Python and C/C++ are absolutely essential), knowledge of methods for macromolecular (protein/nucleic acids) structure prediction
  • preferred: experience in the development of 3D structure prediction and modeling methods, Monte Carlo simulations, Molecular Dynamics, development of statistical potentials, machine learning methods,

Good command of English (written and spoken) is absolutely essential. 
 
Applications in English (pdf format) should be sent to employment@genesilico.pl.
