[DMANET] PostDoc/PhD student position at FSU Jena: Parameterized Algorithms for Bioinformatics

The Chair for Bioinformatics, Institute of Computer Science at the
Friedrich-Schiller University Jena offers the following position:

PostDoc/PhD student as a research associate (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter)

The position is part of the project Parameterized Algorithmics for
Bioinformatics, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. The
scope of this project is to develop efficient algorithms for NP-hard
bioinformatics problems, in particular using parameterized
algorithmics. The focus of research is, besides developing such
algorithms, also their implementation, evaluation, algorithm
engineering, and biological case studies. Other methods for solving
NP-hard optimization problems, such as Integer Linear Programming,
will also be considered.

Requirements for PhD students: Applicants for this project must have
or be about to obtain a Master's degree or a qualification equivalent
to the German Diploma in bioinformatics, computer science, or
mathematics. The applicant should have an very good background in
algorithmics. Introductory course level knowledge or better in biology
and molecular biology is required. Good programming skills are
required, and experience in software design would be helpful.

Requirements for Postdocs: Applicants for this project must have a PhD
in bioinformatics, computer science, or mathematics. It is required
that the applicant has research experience in developing paramterized
algorithms, preferably for bioinformatics problems, documented by
publications in scientific journals or conference proceedings.

Salary is according to Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L, either a full position
(for PostDocs) or 3/4 position (for PhD students). This position is a
temporary appointment.

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.

Please send your application with the usual documents (CV, list of
publications, copies of certificates, preferred via email) until
January 15th 2014 to:
