Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

We accept applications for a two-year postdoctorate fellow position in bioinformatics and plant genomics to develop an optimized system of using DNA and RNA NGS and mapping data to identify genes associated with how a crop plant responds to biotic treatment for biocontrol and biostimulation. The candidate will use traditional and advanced machine learning-based approaches. In addition, the project will collaborate with researchers in other disciplines, including medicine, biostatistics, and paleogenomics.

See the link for full details.

The review of applications begins in early June  2022.

Candidates are expected to have an interest in plant biology alongside strong computational skills with a background in statistics, computer science, and/or a related field. Candidates are also expected to have experience with plant genomics.

The candidate will work jointly with Dr. Eran Elhaik, Prof. Allan Rasmusson (Lund University) and Prof. Laura Grenville-Briggs (Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (SLU), Alnarp).

If you have questions about the position, please email me, but apply on the website, not by email.
