Position: Postdoc Position in Bioinformatic Analysis of Neural Development in Nematostella
Institution: University of Bergen
Department: Sars International Centre
Location: Bergen, Hordaland, Norway
Duties: The Rentzsch group studies neurogenesis in the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis with the aim to understand cellular, molecular and evolutionary aspects of nervous system development. The project employs computational analyses of differential gene expression and ATAC seq data to characterize the transcriptional changes that control the development of neural progenitor cells into differentiated neurons. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to further develop the project in line with his/her interests. If desired, contribution to the experimental validation of the computational analyses is possible in collaboration with a postdoc
Requirements: The applicant must hold a Norwegian PhD or an equivalent degree within informatics or biology, or must have submitted his/her doctoral thesis for assessment prior to the application deadline. It is a condition of employment that the PhD has been awarded. Ability to work both independently and in close collaboration with others in a structured manner. Personal communication skills to interact with the scientific environment are required. Proficiency in both written and oral English
