Postdoc positions available at LANGEBIO, Mexico: Crop genomics
You are invited to apply to work on a large scale project to sequence six iconic crop species, with the aim of building genomic references for these organisms that may help with selection and crop improvement in Mexico and Latin America, as well as establish markers to identify varieties for breeders. The project is funded through SAGARPA and integrates several research teams in Mexico. Selected applicants will have access to the local infrastructure at LANGEBIO and the Genomics Core Facility www.langebio.cinvestav.mx/labsergen). Previous experience working with large genomic datasets, genome assembly and annotation and computational skills including one or more scripting or programming languages (e.g. R, Perl, Python, C, Java) and complete familiarity in working in a Linux/Unix environment is essential. Experience working with high performance computing systems and parallelized pipelines is desired.
