The "Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Genome Biology" lead byDr. Guillem Ylla will open at the Jagiellonian University (Krakow, Poland) next fall and invites applications for a fully funded 3-year post-doc position starting between November 2021 and January 2022. The candidate will have the chance to work in a young lab, collaborate with international researchers, and use state-of-the-art technologies, infrastructure, and methodologies to study the evolution of genomes and gene regulatory networks.

We are seeking a motivated candidate interested in analyzing "omics" data to unveil the different mechanisms of gene expression regulation and genome evolution. The candidate will also participate in writing articles and grants, mentoring students, and managing the lab resources. Candidates belonging to minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. We offer a competitive postdoc salary plus all benefits available for university employees.

  • Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Biology or similar field.
