We are seeking a bioinformatician to join our large interdisciplinary project examining the evolution of arthropod moulting, by integrating paleontological, morphological, molecular and genomic data. The position is part of a Sinergia project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
This bioinformatician will perform the assembly and annotation of genomes in line with the project research objectives and in collaboration with the relevant doctoral students and postdocs. They will support all genomics data and tasks within the project, notably in comparative genomics and gene family evolutionary analyses, as well as collaborating with other project staff programmers.
They will join a four-lab network of researchers conducting an interdisciplinary study of arthropod moulting by combining multiple research disciplines. As a result, the bioinformatician will be providing essential data analytics support to an international collaboration, where all labs offer state-of-the-art research facilities, and the universities represent vibrant academic environments covering a wide range of biology and earth sciences topics.
UNIL is a leading international teaching and research institution, with over 5,000 employees and 15,500 students split between its Dorigny campus, CHUV and Epalinges.
