– Solid background on computational and statistical methods to analyze large-scale datasets and of programming skills (Python, R, preferable).

– Proficiency with Unix/Linux operating system.

– Expertise in genomics and in processing data from next-generation sequencing and related technologies.

– Excellent communication skills, collaborative attitude and ability to work effectively as part of a team.

– Fluency in English.

– A strong work ethic and commitment to timely delivery of results.

 

Any further knowledge in cellular and molecular biology will be advantageous.

Host Institution
