PhD Position Available – Trypanosomitidae Long Non Coding RNA Analysis


A position is available in the comparative bioinformatics lab (Cédric Notredame,, at the CRG (Barcelona, Spain) for a PhD student interested in the study of long non coding RNAs in Trypanosomatide. The work will be done in the collaboration with the Pasteur Institute (Paris) and the Facultat de Medecina (Lisbon). Our lab is purely computational but has developed an important sequencing component through interactions with experimental labs dedicated to the study of virulence in Leishamnia and Trypanosome. The main task of the student will be to develop new methods for the comparison of lncRNAs in order to understand their potential interaction with the host. We will use evolutionary and genomics analysis so as to generate hypothesis meant to be tested in the various in-vivo systems available for our collaborators. The required skills include some experience working with genomics data, the ability to code in Perl or Python, a good operational knowledge of R and some experience working with the Linux operating system. Contact for more information.
