The Faculty of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant three-year Postdoctoral position in bioinformatics and comparative genomics.
About the position:
- The successful candidate will work in the project “What makes a tree a tree? Characterization and evolution of the gene regulatory network underlying wood formation” funded by the Research Council of Norway.
- The project aims to understand the process of wood formation in angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species by modelling the regulatory networks orchestrating the differentiation of stem cells into woody tissues.
- The candidate will work on integrating data on gene expression, open chromatin and transcription factor binding to infer regulatory networks and then to compare these networks across multiple tree species.
- Applicant must hold PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology or another relevant subject
- Extensive programming skills preferably in R
- Broad experience with (multi)omics data analysis
- (Multi)omics data analysis including RNA-seq, ATAC-seq and DAP-seq
- Integration of regulatory motif databases and omics data
- Network inference and comparative network analysis
- Web-tool development
