To develop reproducible pipelines and software infrastructure to analyse functional genomics data. Closing: 14 October.

Research Fellow position developing reproducible pipelines and software infrastructure to analyse functional genomics data as part of the FAANG project. As part of an EU Horizon 2020 funded project, a post-doc position is available in Mick Watson’s research group for four years, to lead the development of pipelines and software infrastructure for the processing and analysis of functional genomics data.

The post is part of a large EU consortium project (GENE-SWitCH) whose aims are to produce detailed genomic annotation, across tissues and time points, of the pig and chicken genomes. GENE-SWitCH will provide essential data and analysis to the wider Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes (FAANG) project. Roslin is responsible for leading the bioinformatics workpackage and the post-holder will work with collaborators throughout Europe in the GENE-SWitCH project and throughout the World in the FAANG project. Data types to build pipelines for include RNA-Seq, miRNA-Seq, IsoSeq, bisulfite sequencing, ATAC-Seq and ChIP-Seq; and the aim is to use existing tools within a workflow manager such as Snakemake or Nextflow. Software infrastructure such as virtual machines, containers and software environments will need to be developed to ensure reproducibility.
