PhD Fellowship in Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics
A FPI fellowship to carry out a PhD degree in Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics is
available at the Bioinformatics of Genomic Diversity and the Comparative and Functional
Genomics groups located at the Institut de Biotecnologia i de Biomedicina (IBB) of the
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). The successful candidate will join a young, dynamic, and interdisciplinary team and will collaborate in the research of the group within the project “Understanding genome variation from nucleotides to phenotypes in Drosophila and humans”, funded by the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad.
In particular, the PhD project will be focused on the development of models to estimate the action of selection on genome variation, including both SNPs and structural variants, especially inversions, and the integration of population genomics data with functional data to characterize the genomic determinants of evolution.
We are looking for motived individuals with high interest in science and a Master degree in an
area related to Bioinformatics, Evolution, Genomics or Genetics.
Total duration of contract will be of 4 years with an annual salary of 16.422 €.
To express interest in the position, send an e-mail with a copy of your CV and contact information to Antonio Barbadilla (
) and Mario Cáceres
Official application should be done through the MINECO website
