PhD Scholarship in Computational Biology

The Laboratory of Computational Oncology at the Centre for Integrative Biology (CIBIO), University of Trento (Italy), seeks PhD candidates in Computational Biology (Doctoral School in Biomolecular Sciences,

The successful applicant will work on the project Computational characterization of circulating DNA content from advanced cancer patients pre- and post-treatment ( project summary PDF. Will develop computational methods and tools for the analysis and interpretation of Next Generation Sequencing data generated from human samples within an international collaboration. The work includes technical and discovery aspects.

The candidate should have a master degree or equivalent in Computational Biology or Bioinformatics or Computer Science (or equivalent) and solid programming skills (preferably perl, R, C/C++). Previous experience with large biological datasets and advanced statistical analyses would be an advantage.

We seek individuals that are highly self-motivated, able to work independently and to collaborate closely and effectively with internal and external collaborators. Interested candidates are encouraged to submit their CV, three references with contact details and a short research statement (1 page).
