The candidate should be familiar with the molecular and genetic toolbox available for Drosophila work, as well as housing and crossings of flies. Previous work with oligo-biotin pull-down and RNA-sequencing is of merit. As the project will contain elements of bioinformatics analysis, we are looking for a candidate capable of basal analysis in Ubuntu environment and programming in R, with the major focus on sequencing analysis. Background knowledge and understanding of epigenetic inheritance, metabolism and reproduction is required. Strong communication skills in English are required, as well as an ability to work independently in a collaborative setting.
