Postdoctoral Scientist Bioinformatics
The Department of Plant Systems Biology, VIB, University Ghent 
(www.psb.ugent.be) is
an internationally renowned and dynamic research institute that employs 
molecular genetics,
genomics and bioinformatics to unravel developmental processes in 
plants. The Systems
Biology of Yield group, headed by Prof. Dirk Inzé, is focusing on the 
integration of multiple
data sources (genomics, transcriptomics, phenotyping) to investigate the 
complex regulation
of plant growth in relation to the environment.

- Job description:
We want to recruit an enthusiastic postdoc in bioinformatics/systems 
biology. With the advent
of sequencing technologies, we are now able to exploit the natural 
variation of plants to study
growth and development in the model species Arabidopsis thaliana as well 
as the crop
species Zea mays (corn). You will be involved in the integrative 
analysis of RNA-seq data
and growth phenotype data. The successful applicant will be working in 
close collaboration
with our experimental team, to develop and apply computational methods 
to analyze inhouse
generated data.
- Profile:
· You have a PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Computational Science or in
Biotechnology/Biochemistry/Bioengineering or equivalent.
· You have a good knowledge/experience in programming (one or more of the
following: Perl/Python, R, SQL, Java and/or C++), proficiency in Unix/Linux.
· Experience with next-generation sequencing and/or microarray data 
genome-wide association mapping, machine learning and/or network 
inference is a
· Strong background in statistics is a plus
· Good knowledge of plant biology is a plus
· You speak English fluently. You have good communication skills and 
like to work in a
team. You can work independently and like to take initiative.

- The contract will be for a period of 3 years. We offer a diverse job
