Application deadline: 4th March 2023.
Reference: Bioinformatics position
The postdoctoral researcher will be part of a team of two postdoctoral researchers and one laboratory technician, carrying out a research project that aims to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying gene-environment associations in the context of the current global change. The team will identify and characterize gene-environment associations in Drosophila melanogaster natural populations using both bioinformatic and experimental approaches. Whole genome sequences from natural populations collected mainly in Europe, US and Africa will be available at the start of the project, while other -omics datasets will be produced during the course of the project.
The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the bioinformatic analyses of the project including the identification of genetic variants, both SNPs and transposable element insertions, in all the genomes available; ChIP-seq and RNA-seq analyses; the identification of gene-environment associations across space and time (seasonal and across years); the analysis of the environmental variables most relevant for adaptation; and the analysis of the candidate genes identified, among other related tasks.
