Our breakthrough project has captured the interest of the scientific community and we have ample financial support for the studies and offer generous fellowships to qualifying candidates.
We expect experienced candidates with a proven excellent expertise and knowhow to independently handle raw output data of RNA-seq / miR seq/ Genomic, analyze it and can interpret intelligently the relevant biological background. Accordingly, background in statistics, programming and scripting is required (e.g., experience and knowledge in tools like Linux clusters, R, mysql, Matlab, perl, python, etc.), with a respected record of relevant publications (including 1st authorship).
