Description: The Department of Informatics has a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow position within the Computational Biology Unit. The position is for a period of 4 years.
Utilizing various existing tools and databases can to a large extent solve many bioinformatics tasks. In order to make this efficient, users must be able to identify the relevant resources and set up a script that controls their invocation and utilization. One way to facilitate such integration is the development of appropriate formats for data representation and ontologies for describing the function and data content of tools and databases. In this project we will work with partners in the European Bioinformatics Infrastructure Elixir to further develop data formats and ontologies facilitating integrative bioinformatics. This will include the further development of the data format BioXSD and the ontology EDAM.
The position of postdoctoral fellow is a fixed-term appointment with the primary objective of qualifying the appointee for work in academic positions. The fixed-term period for this position is 4 years, of which 25 % will comprise mandatory work, such as teaching and/or administrative tasks.

Description: Yale School of Medicine, Department of Pathology , is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral associate to work on the development and application of computational methods for the analysis of large - scale B cell immunoglobulin (Ig) repertoire sequencing data.
Large - scale characterization of B cell immunoglobulin repertoires is now feasible in humans. Driven by the dramatic improvements in high - through put sequencing technologies, these repertoire sequencing (Rep - Seq) projects are opening up exciting avenues of inquiry. Features of the repertoire - including polymorphisms, biased segment usage , mutation profiles and diversity - can be correlated with cli nically relevant outcomes, such as susceptibility to infection, vaccination or treatment responses and cancer prognosis. These data have broad applications not only for understanding the adaptive immune response to pathogens, but can also provide insights into the role of somatic hypermutation in autoimmunity and cancer. Achieving these goals requires effective frameworks to manage and analyze such "Big Data".

Our lab is based at the Children's Cancer Research Institute (CCRI) of the St. Anna Kinderkrebsforschung Association in Vienna (Austria).
Our group has been studying the molecular underpinnings of Ewing sarcoma for many years. We try to understand, how a single genetic aberration, the EWS-FLI1 gene fusion, can drive the pathogenesis of this disease. Since recent genome sequencing studies confirmed an extremely low number of mutations and the absence of recurrent aberrations other than the EWS-ETS gene rearrangement and facultative whole chromosome copy number changes, it is plausible that if activated in the right developmental, epigenomic and genomic context, EWS-FLI1 is sufficient to induce and maintain malignancy.

Deadline: Immediately
Description: A postdoctoral position (2 years with possible extensions) is available immediately in the evolutionary genomics group of Henrik Kaessmann.
We have been interested in a range of topics related to the functional evolution of genomes across mammals. In the framework of our research, we are generating comprehensive sets of RNA-seq data for a large collection of germline and somatic tissues from representatives of all major mammalian lineages (placental mammals, marsupials, and the egg-laying monotremes) and evolutionary outgroups (e.g., birds). In conjunction with various high-throughput genomic and epigenomic datasets, we are using these transcriptome data to study the functional (expression) evolution of mammalian genomes across gene types, lineages, tissues, developmental stages, chromosomes and sexes.
The postdoctoral fellow will perform integrated evolutionary/bioinformatics analyses based on data produced in our lab and available genomic data. The specific project will be developed together with the candidate.

Despite the successes of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), important challenges remain that limit their impact on human biology and medicine, especially the fact that in the majority of cases the causal loci are located in non-coding regions and poorly understood. Recent advances in human regulatory and functional genomics (ENCODE, Roadmap Epigenomics Project and GTEX) and gene editing technologies (such as CRISPR/Cas9) allow us to overcome these challenges and gain a systematic understanding of the role of GWAS variants in human disease and complex traits.

Description: Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in protein structural computational biology at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, University of Edinburgh.
This post will involve computationally investigating the relationships between protein complex structure and assembly, and human genetic variation and disease. Our early work suggests that the structure and assembly of protein complexes can strongly influence the phenotypic impacts of both protein-coding and non-coding variants. The goal of this project will be to first investigate this in much more detail, exploring how the assembly of proteins into complexes affects genotype-phenotype relationships for both Mendelian disease and complex traits.
