[DMANET] Postdoctoral position in computational biology at Inria Rennes, France

Inria project team SYMBIOSE is seeking highly qualified and motivated
candidates for a 12 months postdoctoral position.

Research Program :
Next Generation Sequencing technologies generate data of a new type in
huge volumes and crucial computational developments are needed to take
full advantage of these data. The successful candidate will develop new
algorithms to identify complex genomic variants in such data from
multiple samples without the use of a reference genome. Our approach
relies on a formal model based on the De-Bruijn graph structure to
handle huge amounts of data and extract biologically relevant information.

the project description

Profile :
- PhD in computational biology or algorithmics with a strong interest
for biology
- good programming skills (C, C++, python, java, ...)
- background in sequence and graph algorithmics
- a prior experience with high throughput sequencing data will be
- to apply, the candidate must have spent less than 6 months in France
during the period April 2010 - April 2011

Working environment :
The position is located in France, in the city of Rennes at the INRIA
Rennes - Bretagne Atlantique center. SYMBIOSE is a dynamic and
multi-disciplinary research team working in computational biology and
bioinformatics. The contract is for 12 months, starting as soon as
January 2012. Salary is 2620 euros monthly before taxes deduction.
