Dear Coral-Listers,

We are currently seeking a highly motivated, independent but team-oriented
postdoctoral fellow with strong bioinformatics background. Our group
applies functional and comparative genomics techniques to investigate the
molecular basis of symbiosis, acclimation and adaptation in corals and
related cnidarian model organisms. The respective projects are focused on
NGS data analysis and include RNAseq, genome and transcriptome assembly as
well as bisulfite and ChIP-Seq data. For a more detailed idea regarding the
kind of projects please have a look at our latest DNA methylation study in
the coral *Stylophora pistillata* https://www.biorxiv.org/

The successful candidate will join the Group of Prof. Manuel Aranda at the
Red Sea Research Center of the King Abdullah University of Science and
Technology (KAUST). Strong computational skills in the areas of Perl or
Python programing as well as the proficient use of open source software for
data processing and analysis of NGS data are required.

KAUST is a dynamic new university campus and campus community in Saudi
Arabia that opened in September 2009. The campus is located directly at the
Red Sea, near Jeddah. More information is available at www.kaust.edu.sa.
The position includes a highly competitive tax free salary, accommodation,
annual leave, and health insurance.

Please send cover letter summarizing your qualifications and interests, a
curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for 2 references to
manuel.aranda at kaust.edu.sa. Applications that do not fulfill requirements
outlined above will not be considered.
