Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio), UV-CSIC, Valencia, Spain

A postdoctoral position (1.5 years) is available immediately in the PathoGenOmics group of Mireia Coscolla in Valencia (Spain)

http://www.uv.es/pathogenomic

We are seeking enthusiastic applicants with skills in computational biology/bioinformatics and with experience in data mining and comparative or evolutionary genome analyses. Skills in Bayesian phylogenetics and phylodynamics, and pathogen evolution is a plus.

The project: Strategic initiative for genomic surveillance and assessment of the impact of SARS-CoV-2 mutations in real time. The aim of the position is to investigate molecular epidemiology dynamics, mutations surveillance, and to collaborate with a multidisplinary team to explore the functional impact of the different SARS-CoV2 variants. The project is highly linked to the ongoing project http://seqcovid.csic.es/.

The tasks of the postdoc will be in sequence and evolutionary analyses of SARS-CoV-2 sequences within a consortium with eight research groups ranging from virology to mathematics and protein structure.
The position is based in Valencia, at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio), a mixed institute between university of Valencia and CSIC. The Pathogenomics group is part of the Pathogen Systems Biology program, and we study microbial pathogens in the context of their host and disease. To approach this, we use a range of different omics technologies where genomics is our main approach to study the evolution and molecular epidemiology of the pathogen. But we also perform experimental infections to discover which genomic determinants are involved in different virulence readouts, using among other approaches transcriptomic of host and pathogen

To apply send CV and e-mail of two references to Mireia.coscolla@csic.es
