Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Laboratory of Dr Falk Hildebrand at the Earlham Institute & Quadram Institute based in Norwich, UK.
The ideal candidate:
Candidates should have a PhD in Bioinformatics or related field, with experience in either: metagenomics, population genetics, comparative genomics (eukaryotic or prokaryotic), binning algorithms, single cell sequencing and/or sequencing technologies. The candidate will work independently, with other group members, and with national and international collaborators to generate and analyse data.
Previous experience in publishing scientific results as well as bioinformatics expertise are essential. An interest in community microbiology (such as gut microbiome), genetics and evolution will be advantageous, but prior experience or knowledge of metagenomics is not a requirement. Good organisational skills and the ability to communicate and work productively within a multidisciplinary team will be crucial. Training will be available for multiple aspects of the work.
Salary on appointment will be within the range £32,578 to £39,938 per annum depending on qualifications and experience. This is a full-time post for a contract of 3 years.
