The Postdoc position concerns bioinformatics analyses of transcriptomic data from neurodegenerative diseases. The position is to commence as soon as possible. You will be a team player working with great excitement, and a key person in the project essential for obtaining successful results. The Postdoc position is part of the Indo-Danish NeuroStem project, which aims to discover RNA mediated regulation in neurodegeneration through stem cell models. The Postdoc will be interacting closely with the Group for Stem Cells and Embryology (https: ivh.ku.dk english research anatomy-biochemistry-physiology stemcells ). See http: neurostem.dk for details. The Neurostem project is supported by Innovation Fund Denmark. The project holds strong synergy to the BrainStem center: http: brainstem.dk. Background The NeuroStem project aims at identifying the underlying neuronal pathology of causative genes and regulatory elements to obtain novel functional insight in Alzheimer s and Parkinson s diseases that can enable improved treatment. Transcripts will be extracted from neurons derived from iPSC, previously generated from patient skin fibroblasts. In cases where the patients carry specific disease-causing mutations, the iPSCs are gene corrected using CRISPR Cas9 (isogenic control) allowing for strict comparisons of diseased and isogenic neuronal cells. In addition neurons from engineered healthy control iPSC, into which the genetic mutation is introduced, will be part of the analyses to circumvent the low numbers of samples due to rare mutations. Finally neurons from sporadic iPSC will be investigated to identify novel disease causative genes and pathways as well as validation of common pathways affected in both sporadic and familial forms of Alzheimer s disease. Job description The project takes outset in differential expression analysis of transcripts between disease and gene edited and healthy control neurons. This involves detection and analysis of coding and noncoding transcripts as well as structured RNA and other regulatory elements. From the differential expression analysis, relevant pathways will further be included to obtain candidates for downstream functional analysis in terms of knock-out and knock-in experiments. In addition to transcriptome analysis and gene network methods in silico methods concerning structured RNA and RNA-RNA interactions will be can be incorporated in the integrated pipelines and relevant method development be included in the project. Required qualifications and selection criteria The applicant should hold the professional as well as personal skills and qualifications as stated below: A completed PhD degree in bioinformatics, computer science or in a similar area General background knowledge of biological areas of genome structure and transcriptomes Strong experience with script languages such as Perl or Python (or similar) Strong experience with the Linux Unix environment, command lines and shell scripting Solid experience with transcriptome analysis Good interpersonal skills Excellent in English both in writing and speech Candidates fulfilling one or more of the following qualifications will be prioritised: Strong experiences with transcriptome data analysis Algorithmic insight broad and for RNA (2D) structure Experience with transcriptomic data from neurodegenerative diseases Experience in at least one of the following programming languages: C, C or Java It is recommended that the applicant address the qualification requirements one by one in the cover letter.
