Sign In Postdoc or Research Associate position in "Bioinformatics of Epigenetics and Chromatin Structure" King Abdullah University of Science and Technology: Postdoc Positions: Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division (postdoc) Location King Abdullah University of Science and Technology Open Date Mar 1, 2020 Description Position Summary: The “Chromatin Biochemistry” laboratory of Prof. Wolfgang Fischle at KAUST invites applications for a Postdoc or Research Associate position in “Bioinformatics of Epigenetics and Chromatin Structure”. Our research team is aiming to understand the molecular principles of epigenetic regulation that are embedded in the organization of cellular chromatin. In particular, we want to find out how chromatin structure impacts on the way the genome is used and what role post-translational modifications of histone proteins and methylation of DNA play in this process. For this, we are using highly interdisciplinary approaches combining classical biochemistry and molecular biology with systems biology methods. We are working with different experimental model systems (C. elegans, mouse, human cell lines) and in the context of different disease applications. The research team is very diverse in background and nationalities and provides a highly stimulating working environment. We now seek a dynamic new colleague who has the ability and drive to strengthen our computational biology efforts. Major Responsibilities: The successful candidate is expected to apply existing and to develop new algorithms and data analysis pipelines for evaluating ensemble and single cell RNAseq, ChIP-seq, HiC and related experiments based on next generation sequencing.

Competencies: Individuals must be able to work in a team and possess excellent communication skills. We expect high motivation, the ability to meet deadlines in a goal-oriented environment and the talent to organize personal and group work flows. Candidates must be accustomed to working under pressure and to contribute to scientific problem solving. High proficiency in English language is a must.
