Postdoctoral Fellowship in BIOINFORMATICS
Funded by the TMR Programme of the European Commission

Commencing Date: As soon as possible

We are seeking candidates interested in Bioinformatics, with a Ph.D. in
scientific field and with strong computational skills. Our main
objective is
large-scale genome sequence analysis with focus on problems of
interest. We continuously analyze complete-genome sequences,  as they
being produced and explore algorithms for the post-genomic era.

The particular post affords an opportunity to work on software & data
engineering, development and implementation of new methods and design
of web services in a biological research setting. The work involves
collaboration both with biologists and computer scientists and provides
solid training in the field of Bioinformatics. The successful candidate
will be working in close collaboration with our partners at the
Institute for Genome Research in Cambridge, Massachussets USA, and the
project may involve extensive work visits to Boston.

The TMR Network at the EBI is one of the largest and more active
activities of scientists at the post-doctoral level in the field of
bioinformatics in Europe. The network consists of the following

 - Research Programme
   The European Bioinformatics Institute
   Cambridge - UK
 - Department of Bioinformatics
   Max-Delbr¸ck-Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC)
   Berlin - Germany
 - Protein Design Group
