Job Description: Also in preparation of the Genome Computing research project, starting in the fall of 2012, we offer new post-doc R&D positions in bioinformatics Genome Computing at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione (DEI) (http://www.dei.polimi.it/index.php?&idlang=eng) of Politecnico di Milano (http://www.polimi.it/).
The Politecnico di Milano is a state university, focused on Engineering, Architecture, and Design, ranked by QS World University Rankings by Subject “Engineering and Technology 2011-2012” at the 48th place.
Research activities are in English.
The Genome Computing project focuses on big data analysis and Web technology for genomic data. It will be conducted in collaboration with IEO-IFOM (http://www.ifom-ieo-campus.it/), and will take advantage of next generation sequencing technology, which opens up to radical innovation in biological and medical research. The project aims at building a powerful data computing infrastructure at the receiving end of DNA sequencing machines, for enabling viewing, querying, analyzing, mining, and searching over a world-wide available collection of genomic data. The project goal is generating an open-source, standard, highly efficient, extendable and easily usable computational framework – the “Internet of genomes” – to support scientists in genome-related research. It also includes the development of new big data and network analysis algorithms to be efficiently implemented as framework modules specifically devoted to the challenging comparative analysis of multiple genome features. Genome Computing is a follow-up of Search Computing (http://www.search-computing.org/), a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC).
The selected candidate will be part of a multidisciplinary team with researchers from IEO-IFOM and from the Department of Mathematics of Politecnico di Milano (http://www.mate.polimi.it/index.php?lg=en), who are interdisciplinary working on big data management, integration and sharing using Web technologies and advanced analysis towards biomedical knowledge discovery. We are seeking highly motivated candidates who will have the opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary research project, working in close collaboration with many scientists and researchers, within an international research environment.
We welcome post-doc candidates holding a PhD degree, and/or research experience, in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or related fields, with background in Bioinformatics and data analytics. Previous experience in multi-feature network-base bioinformatics analysis and genomic computing would be an advantage, but it is not required.
How to apply:
The call for R&D positions is published at http://www.english.polimi.it/index.php?id=4282 The deadline for application is July 16.
Candidates may be invited to a colloquium, e.g. using Skype.
Interested candidates are welcome to contact Prof. Stefano Ceri (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Marco Masseroli (email@example.com).
As an additional notice, Politecnico is also offering more senior researcher positions to international candidates.
