Jobbeschreibung Job description
We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly-motivated young researcher that is eager to contribute to ongoing cutting-edge research projects and develop and implement her/his own research ideas. The candidate is expected to contribute to the analysis of short- and long-read sequencing data from hundreds of animals representing different breeds of cattle and pig. The successful candidate will pursue their own research interests, contribute to collaborative projects and assist PhD students with their projects. The availability of long-read sequencing data also offers the opportunity to contribute to endeavors with regard to the de novo assembly of breed-specific reference genomes.

While we are primarily recruiting for a computational genomics-oriented scientist, candidates with a wet-lab background and some bioinformatics experience might also be considered if their future research interests align well with our group. Active participation in international conferences and scientific writing are very much supported. The position is available for 2 years with an anticipated start date of March 1st, 2020 (negotiable, extension beyond 2 years is possible). The position is based at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The successful candidate will join the Animal Genomics group led by Hubert Pausch.
Qualifikationen Your profile
The successful candidate should have a strong research interest in statistical genomics, computational biology, animal genetics or animal breeding. Experience with a programming/scripting language (e.g., python, R) is required as well as proficiency in using high-performance computing clusters. Applicants should hold a PhD (or should be close to the completion of the PhD thesis) in genomics, computational biology, bioinformatics, genetics, agricultural sciences, animal sciences or disciplines related to the PhD position. Affinity to computational genomics, bioinformatics and statistics is required. The writing of scientific papers and participation in international conferences requires good knowledge of English.
