12 month post-doc, bioinformatics against antimicrobial resistance, available now

We are looking for a motivated post-doc to work on an innovative project about understanding molecular determinants of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in non-tubercular mycobacteria.

You will specifically focus on:

(i) developing bioinformatics/statistics methods to create marker panels for mycobacteria and genotype-phenotype correlation studies for multi-drug resistance.

(ii) multi-omic disease network analysis to understand emergence of AMR.

(iii) developing a pipeline and workflow system for species and strain delineation and variant clustering.

You can read more about the project here.

The project is led by Dr. Anshu Bhardwaj, a Long-term Fellow at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity. Besides working within her team, you will be embedded an exciting new research collaboratory (collaborative laboratory), on the interface of life, learning and digital sciences. We are located in the center of Paris, at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity.

Essential Requirements:

  • PhD in Bioinformatics, computational biology, datamining, biostatistics, population and/or statistical genetics, or equivalent.
  • Good programming skills (perl/python/java/C++ etc, SQL, R), proficiency in Unix/Linux and cluster experience.
  • Prior experience working with omics data analysis (WGS ¬†metagenomics, RNA-seq, genotyping data),or machine learning or systems biology, as demonstrated through past research accomplishments, would be ideal.
  • Good communication skills

Desirables: Experience in data mining/machine learning, biomarker detection is a plus. Knowledge of infectious disease biology will be added advantage.

Timeline: The position is available right now and will be open till a suitable candidate is identified.
