Postdoctoral Fellow in Genomics

Postdoctoral Fellow in Genomics

SIB - Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics

Basel, Switzerland

The Molecular Immune Regulation group at the Department of Biomedicine of the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland is seeking a highly motivated postdoc with a strong background in bioinformatic analysis of genome-wide datasets. Our lab is interested in understanding molecular pathways involved in immune regulation. We focus on miRNAs and miRNA-regulated genetic networks in T cells. We combine genetic mouse models with various-omics approaches and apply the latest genome engineering tools to dissect molecular pathways in mouse and human cells (Baumjohann et al., Nat Imm, 2013; Kornete et al, J Imm, 2018). In addition, we develop new concepts for genome engineering-based cell therapy.

Your Position

  • You help to plan future experiments, analyze existing datasets generated in the lab, integrate datasets from public data repositories and contribute to interpretation of the results (e.g. RNA-Seq, HITS-CLIP, genome-wide CRISPR screening, metabolomics, proteomics, targeted genome engineering experiments);
  • Beside your assistance to other lab members, you are highly encouraged to develop and lead your own project;
  • You interact closely with the bioinformatics core facility and other embedded bioinformaticians at the institute.

Profile requirements

  • A PhD degree in a quantitative field (bioinformatics, statistics, physics or mathematics) with a strong interest in the analysis of biological systems;
  • Some basic knowledge of immunology;
  • At least two-years hands-on experience with next generation sequence data analysis;
  • Good statistical and R/Bioconductor programming skills are essential;
  • Excellent communication, and teamwork skills.
