We are delighted to announce a new post for a Postdoctoral Researcher in High Throughput Sequencing analyses in our group (Applied Evolutionary Virology, NK University of Athens, Greece) for three years with potential extension of additional 2 years.
At this stage we ask potential applicant to submit an Expression of Interest to be sent at Dr Gkikas Magiorkinis ([email protected]
) until 31/12/2023. The Expression of Interest should be comprised by a short statement of interest, a CV and contact details of 2 referees.
The applications will be examined on a weekly rolling basis and successful candidates will be contacted as soon as possible and until 15/01/2024.
The successful applicant will have:
1) Proven experience in analyses of High-Throughput Sequencing datasets
2) Publication record on High-Throughput Sequencing
3) PhD or equivalent on a relevant subject
4) Enthusiasm and commitment for research and science
The successful applicant will be working on a variety of datasets (human genomes, viruses, DNA-seq, RNA-seq) produced by diverse platforms (Illumina, Nanopore, PacBio) either through our global collaborative network or in our lab. Our working hypotheses involve the interaction of viruses (exogenous such as SARS-CoV-2, HIV, HCV) and humans (immunity, endogenous retroviruses, transposable elements) with respect to the development of diseases (cancer, autoimmunity, post-infection syndromes) looking into immunity and differentiation pathways.
We are committed to the career development of our collaborators, thus there will be mentoring and support to the successful applicant for further potential applications of relevant fellowships. The successful applicant is expected to present their work in appropriate international Conferences with full travel support provided by the lab.
The lab is based at the Department of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Medical Statistics at the Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Our funding comes from a variety of resources including the European Commission, the Hellenic Foundation of Research and Innovation and private donations, and we have strong links with the National Retrovirus Reference Centre, the largest HIV reference centre in Greece. Our research is supported by dedicated Cat-2 and Cat-3 lab facilities as well as dedicated and distributed supercomputing facilities.
The salary will depend on the level of experience of the researcher.
