OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Bioinformatics Laboratory at MMRC PAS offers a position of a research assistant in projects in the field of omics-related computational biology and multi-scale medical data, as well as molecular modeling of protein systems

Necessary Requirements:

  • Master's degree in biology, medical science, informatics technology, chemistry, physics, technical sciences or related topic
  • Knowledge of omics-related computational biology and readiness to expand these skills – any of the following: large scale biological data maintenance and analysis (e.g. RNA-seq, exome-seq, proteomics, metabolomics), molecular pathway in silico analysis, systems biology, biostatistics
  • At least basic knowledge of R programming language and environment
  • Ability to write scripts in at least one of the following languages: PYTHON, JAVA, C or BASH
  • Proficiency in LINUX
  • Competence in statistical methods used in scientific research,
  • Fluency in English.

Desirable Requirements:

  • Documented scientific achievements: publications from JCR list and conference abstracts
  • Documented experience in scientific research with the use of molecular modeling methods (prediction of protein structure, docking, MD simulations),
  • Knowledge of molecular modeling methods (prediction of protein structure using comparative modeling, molecular docking, Molecular Dynamics simulation),
  • Practical knowledge of at least one of the programs for visualization and analysis of protein structure (VMD, PyMOL, YASARA, Chimera)
  • Practical experience in using the following programs: GROMACS, NAMD, AMBER, CABS-dock, AutoDock.
  • Knowledge of CytoScape environment and its most popular pathway analysis plugins (e.g. ClueGO, GeneMania).

.

Description of functions under the workplace:

  • Participation in the statutory project of Laboratory of Bioinformatics (eg. research on the structure and properties of proteins and their complexes)
  • Analysis of raw large scale omics data in scientific projects affiliated to the Institute (e.g. RNA-seq, exome-seq, proteomics, metabolomics), analysis of biological pathways in silico
  • participation in the statutory project of Laboratory of Bioinformatics (eg. research on the structure and properties of proteins and their complexes)
  • Active participation in raising funds for research projects
  • Preparing reports on conducted research and analyzed data
  • Key responsibilities also include: plan and perform research, analyze data, prepare manuscripts, present at the Department's seminars and conferences

 

 

The main area of the research in which the candidate would participate:

  1. Participation in omics data analysis for various scientific projects run in the Institute
  2. Research on application of MD simulations and docking methods to predict the structure and properties of receptor-peptide complexes,
  3. Research on application of molecular docking methods to predict protease cleavage sites in peptide sequences.
