  • Experience in microbiology and/or bioinformatics
  • Experience working with microbiome (marker gene, metagenome) or other omics data
  • Programming experience (Python, R, UNIX/bash scripting)
  • Evidence of effective scientific communication (publications and/or open-source software projects)

Applications:

Apply online with the following materials:

  • A short statement of research interests and motivation (one page) that describes candidate’s suitability for the position, and desired timeline.
  • A short research proposal (max. 2 pages) relating to one of the research themes.
