The University of Vienna (15 faculties, 4 centres, about 174 fields of study, approx. 9.500 members of staff, more than 94.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.07.2018 of a Bioinformatician at the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology to 30.06.2022. Reference number : 8574 The Department of Evolutionary Anthropology, University of Vienna is offering a 4-year postdoctoral scholarship in computational palaeogenomics as part of the team led by Dr. Ron Pinhasi, starting July, 1st 2018. The position is opened for a skilled bioinformatician who has experience in sequence analysis, preferably in the field of palaeogenomics, and can contribute significantly to the development of new computational tools, and the analyses of paleogenomic data. Pinhasi’s Lab focuses on the paleogenomics of human populations across the globe, metagenomic analysis of ancient DNA from dental calculus, soil and other environmental sources, selection of morphometric traits and other phenotypes, and the optimisation of ancient DNA methods. His team was the first to develop the petrous optimisation method, and focuses on ancient DNA optimisation experiments. The team is working closely with leading paleogeneticists, population geneticists, archaeologists and physcial anthropologists from universities and museums across the world. The researcher will be part of Pinhasi’s team with a new ancient DNA laboratory and researchers who focus on the generation and analysis of genomic data from ancient humans, environmental sources and various mammalian species. The researcher will also have collaborative links with other teams in Vienna with a strong focus on bioinformatics, genomics, and populations genetics.
