|Postdoctoral researcher: the biology of individuals
|Date Posted||Tuesday, 02 October 2012|
EMBL-CRG Systems Biology, CRG
c / Dr Aiguader 88
|Job Description||Individuals are thankfully all different. We want to understand where these differences originate at the molecular level and how they are propagated within and across generations. How do genes, the environment, life history, parental influences, and stochastic processes interact to determine the characteristics of individuals? To what extent is it possible to predict the phenotypic differences amongst individuals from their completely sequenced genomes? We use model organisms (yeast, worms) to understand when you can, and why you cannot, predict the biology of an individual from their genome sequence.
Please see our recent publications on the causes of incomplete penetrance (Nature 2011), fitness trade-offs and phenotypic diversity in isogenic populations (Science 2012), somatic mutations (Nature 2012), and whole genome reverse genetic predictions (Nature Genetics 2011).
|Qualification||We are looking for one or two outstanding experimental postdoctoral researchers to extend our work on the genetics and epigenetics of individuals. Applicants should have an outstanding track record with experience working in quantitative systems biology, molecular biology, epigenetics and/or imaging. Experience with C. elegans would be a bonus.|
|How to Apply||Enquiries and applications should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include a statement of your main research interests.|
