Job description: Next generation sequencing technologies are 
revolutionizing genetics by allowing us to sequence the genomes of many 
different individual organisms in a population and to observe their
complex coding and non-coding transcriptomes and regulatory events under 
many conditions. Powerful genetic tools such as QTL mapping, large scale
polymorphism libraries, RNAi and high content phenotyping allow the
dissection of causal relationships.

These tasks create exciting opportunities for computational scientists
to develop novel methods in statistics, signal processing and
mathematical modeling. Our team of computational scientists, in the
Genome Biology unit of the EMBL in Heidelberg, is tightly integrated in
loops of experimentation, data analysis, model building, interpretation
and refined experimentation

Qualifications and experience: The ideal candidate has a PhD in a 
quantitative or computational discipline; interest in multidisciplinary 
work covering statistics, mathematical modeling, genetics and molecular 
biology; competence in scientific computing and computer programming; 
interest in biology and its experimental technologies. A good 
publication record (which can include academic papers and scientific 
software) is expected. This position requires ability for teamwork, 
cross-discipline communication skills, reliability, attention to detail 
and effective time management. The working language is English
