ERC-funded Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioinformatics

Swiss TPH - Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute

Basel, Switzerland

The Unit conducts cutting-edge research on host-pathogen interaction at the lab/field interface. A particular focus is on the population genomics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and its interaction with human genetic diversity as well as on the evolution of antibiotic resistance. Our Unit generates large amounts of population- and functional genomic data (e.g. RNAseq, large-scale proteomics and metabolomics). The candidate is expected to work on his/her own specific project as well as in close collaboration with other members of the Unit.

Main responsibilities include:

  • Perform population, comparative and functional genomics analyses of Mtb;
  • Identify links between Mtb genomic variation and experimental/clinical phenotypes;
  • Explore interactions between Mtb diversity and human genomic variation;
  • Study the evolution of Mtb antibiotic resistance within- and between hosts.

You should have the following experiences and skills:

  • Expertise in next-generation sequence analysis;
  • Expertise in statistical analysis of –omics data and data integration;
  • Knowledge of programming languages common to bioinformatics (R and phyton);
  • Excellent command (speaking and writing) of English.
