The International DFG Research Training Group "Computational Methods for the Analysis of the Diversity and Dynamics of Genomes" at Bielefeld University, Germany, offers 6 PhD positions starting October 2016. Research will focus on the development of methods of high importance for the practical comparative analysis of genomes, in particular in view of both the variation between individuals (diversity) and the change in populations over time (dynamics). Our program aims at training specialists in handling big data related to genomics and molecular biology. PhD students will hold 3-year positions, payed according to German TV-L 13 table, i.e., a monthly gross salary of approximately 3200 Euros. This international graduate program is a close cooperation with Simon Fraser University (SFU), Vancouver, Canada (www.sfu.ca/madd-gen). It involves a six-months research stay at SFU or one of the other partner institutions in Vancouver. (Funds to support parents and handicapped persons are available.) Candidates should hold an excellent Master degree (or equivalent) in bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, or a related area. They have to demonstrate broad background in the interdisciplinary field of bioinformatics in general, with a focus on computer science and deep knowledge in the area they apply for. As students must be able to communicate their work in the research training group, and have to quickly integrate into both the Bielefeld and Vancouver environment, good communication skills are demanded. Knowledge of the English language is required, whereas German is not necessary. Application deadline: May 8, 2016 For further information and application instructions, see our website: www.didy.uni-bielefeld.de
