|Date Posted||Wednesday, 26 September 2012|
International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw
ul. Ks. Trojdena 4
|Job Description||The main goal of this project is to apply computational methods to predict and determine RNA 3D structures, and to use the structural information to infer the general rules of RNA evolution. The project will involve extensive collaboration between bioinformaticians (data analysts) and experimentalists (biochemists and crystallographers).
You will join a well-equipped and well-funded laboratory, whose research bridges the fields of experiment and theory in molecular and structural biology. The project will be carried out in the Bujnicki laboratory in collaboration with the Nowotny laboratory in IIMCB.
Good command of English (written and spoken) is absolutely essential.
|Qualification||essential: PhD in computational, natural of life sciences; experience in structural / evolutionary bioinformatics, sequence analyses, database searches, phylogenetic studies, macromolecular structure prediction, basics of programming in Python, fluency in Linux.
preferred: experience in comparative analyses/structure prediction of both RNA and proteins.
For this position we are looking for a "power user" familiar with molecular biology and with extensive experienced in using various bioinformatics tools rather than a computer programmer.
|Compensation||9000/1000/11000 PLN gross salary in the 1st/2nd/3rd year|
|How to Apply||Applications in English (pdf format) should be sent to email@example.com.
