Bioinformatics Analyst - EvoCELL Short term Early Stage Researcher (MSCA)

About the team/job

The EvoCELL network comprises 11 European partner laboratories joining
forces to elucidate the evolution of animal cell types by comparative
whole-body single-cell RNA-seq approaches. We are looking for a skilled
bioinformatician to set up and coordinate the bioinformatic work, which
is key to the success of this innovative and exciting project.

Your role

The successful candidate will help analyse and build tools for the
analysis and integration of single cell RNAseq data collected from diverse
marine animals by laboratories of the EvoCELL network. The researcher will
be hosted in the Arendt lab at EMBL (Heidelberg, Germany) and cooperate
with all EvoCELL labs across Europe. The project will entail testing
and developing bioinformatic tools that allow tracking cell types and
cell type families across animal phylogeny.

The network, coordinated by EMBL Heidelberg, brings together 8 academic
and 2 non-academic organizations from 6 European countries, including
a company and a museum. Partners have complementary expertise in
evolutionary developmental biology (EvoDevo), bioinformatics, functional
neurobiology, and palaeontology. In this unique environment the researcher
will also have the opportunity to take part in the network training
activities and benefit from established collaborations.
