PhD in bioinformatics, focusing on orphan genes in bacteria (Poland)
The Department of Computational Biology at the Faculty of Biology at Adam Mickiewicz University (Poland, Poznan) has a position for a PhD student to work on computational methods for identification of bacterial orphan genes, which may serve as potential drug targets.
PROJECT DESCRIPTIONIdentification and functional annotation of taxonomically-restricted genes in bacteria. The characterized sequences may, among others, serve as molecular markers for metagenomic projects and become a potent candidate for new pharmacological therapies.
- MSc degree in Biology/Bioinformatics or related discipline (e.g. biotechnology, computer science)
- molecular biology background
- knowledge of gene evolution mechanisms
- programming skills (e.g. Python / Perl / Ruby) [optional: C/C++]
- fluent written and verbal communication skills in English
- independent thinking, intellectual curiosity, high motivation and team spirit are skills that are more than welcome
4500 PLN (~1000 EUR)
