We are looking for junior scientists with energy and passion, interested in bioinformatics, software development and biological data analysis, and motivated to develop a successful career in an interdisciplinary and international team.
1) PhD-RNA-programming: You will develop computer software for RNA 3D structure prediction and modeling, building on our successful tools, including ModeRNA and SimRNA. Our big goal is to model RNA-ligand interactions towards the development of new drugs, and to design new RNA molecules that bind to selected ligands.
2) PhD-RNA-databases: You will analyze RNA sequences and structures, and develop online databases. Our big goal is to solve the mysteries of evolution of all RNA molecules, develop new ways to classify RNA sequences and structures, and present our results online via databases and servers.
Wymagania1) PhD-RNA-programming: You must have skills in programming: C/C++ or Python (you will need to learn and use both). Experience in bioinformatics or any type of molecular modeling will be an advantage, but is not essential.
2) PhD-RNA-databases: You must have skills in analyzing biological sequences or in database/website development (you will need to learn and use both).
Experience in molecular phylogenetics analyses will be an advantage, but is not essential.
