Postdoctoral Fellow - Genetic Bioinformaticist

The position is for an early career microbial bioinformaticist /genomicist to work on a jointly funded Australian Institute of Marine Science / ARC project entitled "Revealing the structure, evolution and sensitivity of symbioses in basal metazoa". This project will explore the functional roles of prokaryotic cellular (bacteria and archaea) and acellular (viruses) symbionts within sponges and assess whether they can enhance the acclimatization and adaptive capacity of sponges during a rapidly changing climate. The project is being led by Dr Nicole Webster at the Australian Institute of Marine Science and the bioinformatic components of the research will be guided by Prof. Thomas Rattei, head of the Computational Biology Department at the University of Vienna. This position will provide genomic/bioinformatic skills to the project, participate in detailed research planning and publication preparation and report delivery.

The successful candidate will have experience in designing computational methodology or workflows and in applying several contemporary bioinformatic methods and algorithms for genome/metagenome sequence acquisition, annotation and analysis.  Proven familiarity with the burgeoning field of DNA sequencing technologies is essential. Competence in metagenome mining and the application of ecological networks is also desirable.

Attractive working conditions apply including a remuneration package of AU$73,396 - AU$83,524 commencing salary plus up to 15.4% superannuation, learning and development opportunities, generous leave entitlements, 9 day fortnight, and many other benefits.
