Position Overview:

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher in Bioinformatics to join our team. The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in developing and implementing bioinformatic pipelines for viral discovery and viromics, contributing to our understanding of viral diversity and its impact on ecosystems and human health.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and optimize bioinformatic pipelines for the identification and characterization of viral genomes from metagenomic datasets.

  • Collaborate with virologists and microbiologists to integrate viromic data with ecological and clinical metadata.

  • Analyze viral diversity, abundance, and evolution in various environments and hosts.

  • Contribute to the development of databases and tools for viral annotation and classification.

  • Publish research findings in high-impact journals and present at international conferences.

  • Mentor graduate and undergraduate students in bioinformatics and virology research.



  • Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Virology, or a related field.

  • Strong expertise in programming languages (e.g., Python, R, Perl) and bioinformatics tools (e.g., BLAST, Bowtie, HMMER).

  • Experience with metagenomic data analysis and viral genome assembly.

  • Familiarity with high-performance computing environments and cloud computing platforms.

  • ​Familiarity with protein language models and deep learning is a major plus, but not required.

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

  • Demonstrated ability to publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals.



  • Competitive salary and benefits package.

  • Access to state-of-the-art research facilities and computational resources.

  • Opportunities for professional development and career advancement.

  • Collaborative and supportive research environment.
