We are looking for a highly motivated and independent staff scientist to support our efforts in bioinformatical analyses of environmental ancient genomics to commence 01-02-2023.
Our research We are a highly interdisciplinary research group focusing on sequencing and analyzing ancient environmental DNA (aeDNA). Our large field and laboratory team samples cores drilled from ice or soil. Using state-of-the-art sequencing technologies, we sequence DNA of the samples in order to reconstruct the species distribution in past environments. The objective of the research is to understanding ecological and evolutionary processes, including the consequences of climate change. The research brings together a diverse team of researchers with backgrounds in geology, genetics, ecology, computer science, statistics, and more.
Your job You will join a multi-disciplinary research team working on developing, implementing and executing bioinformatical methods and pipelines for analyses of aeDNA. Your task will be to work with method-developers to implement bioinformatical pipelines and to execute and update these pipelines as needed. There will also be opportunities for you to participate in the development of new statistical and computational methods together with other researchers working on the project. You will be expected to contribute to and support the ongoing research projects in the group on an ad hoc basis when needed and disseminate your expertise to new lab members and support the lab management.
