Bioinformatician can do protein interaction analysis job at EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany
Location : Heidelberg, Germany
Staff Category : Staff Member
Contract Duration : 3 years
Grading : 4, 5 or 6
Reference number : HD_00061
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organizations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany) and the outstations are in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).
We are seeking a Bioinformatician to join the group of Anne-Claude Gavin at EMBL to develop and implement the tools to analyze the large interaction datasets produced. This experimentalist group is applying large-scale biochemical approaches aiming at charting biomolecular networks and understanding complex biological systems. The group has international recognition for its work on the genome-wide characterization of protein complexes in a variety of model organism, ranging from the eukaryote, yeast to the prokaryote, M. pneumoniae. The Gavin Group is looking to recruit a Bioinformatician to organize, support and further develop the general computational technologies in the laboratory. Data acquisition, management and analysis are an integral and central parts of the approaches we apply to chart biologically relevant networks. We expect the successful candidate to actively and independently participate to ongoing experimental projects. This includes, at early stages, contribution to the design of the experiments and later on, integration of the various datasets in coherent frames. Another important activity of the group is to interface with experimental scientists and provide help and training.
