Please RT – Postdoc position available: Genomic Variation Discovery through Visual Analytics
The candidate will be a key player in the SymBioSys workpackage that focuses on genomic variation detection based on next-generation sequencing data (454, Illumina, PacBio) using a visual analytics approach (i.e. combining machine learning with interactive data visualization). This includes applying and improving existing algorithms and tools for the detection of structural genomic variation (insertions, deletions, inversions and translocations), as well as developing interactive data visualizations in order to investigate parameter space of these algorithms. These methods will be applied to specific genetic disorders in day-to-day collaboration with the human geneticists within the consortium.
