PhD contract available

The Evolutionary Genomics Group in the Comparative and Computational Genomics program of the UPF/IBE (http://www.ibe.upf-csic.es/) is willing to recruit a PhD student (FPI contract).

The research group that the successful candidate will join studies genomic variation at both the intraspecific and interspecific levels in great apes and humans.

The group is located at the Evolutionary Biology Unit of the Pompeu Fabra University (http://www.upf.edu) and is part of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (http://www.prbb.org), a renowned centre for Biomedical research that hosts, besides the University, other institutions such as the CRG (Centre for Genomic Regulation) or the CMRB (Barcelona's Centre for Regenerative Medicine). All these organizations share a thrilling and dynamic scientific atmosphere, driven by leading groups in fields such as bioinformatics, molecular biology and evolution. The PRBB is located close to Barcelona's City Centre (right in front of the beach).

The PhD project will be directed by Dr. Tomás Marquès-Bonet.

The project will consists in the detailed analysis and characterization of changes of gene expression in primates due to structural variation such as duplications or inversions.

Candidates should hold a Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in Biology, Computer science or similar AND strong programming skills. Knowledge on next-generation sequence methods (454, Illumina, Solid) and experimental background are especially encouraged to apply.

Motivated and potentially competitive applicants should send, before February 2012 and preferably via e-mail, a CV and a short letter of interest including the names of two persons able to provide references to:

Tomás Marquès-Bonet (tomas.marques@upf.edu)
