PhD positions in German-Canadian bioinformatics program‏

 The International DFG Research Training Group
 "Computational Methods for the Analysis of the Diversity and Dynamics of 
 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

 in Vancouver. (Funds to support parents and handicapped persons are 
 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.
