In the field of  “DNA demethylation” the research group of Prof. Miguel Andrade offers the following PhD project: Data integration and summarization of next generation sequencing data

Description:

The production of Biological data has increased since the apparition of next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. Although the integration of NGS datasets of various types is a very powerful tool for biomedical scientists, it comes with the cost of complexity in the data analysis, integration and interpretation. This complexity often prevents the comprehensive use of private or publicly available NGS data. In this project, publicly available NGS datasets will be analysed and integrated to explore efficient methods of summarization. The goal is to improve the representation of analysis results by reproducing state-of-the-art workflows and using relevant empirical knowledge. A critical part of the project will be to model empirical knowledge such as for the expected reproducibility within and across datasets.  

We offer
• The possibility to work on a cutting-edge project using state-of-the-art technology in a highly motivated research team
• A stimulating, diverse and international research environment
• Advanced training opportunities
• A competitive stipend

Required qualifications
• Master or Diploma
• Motivation to solve complex biological problems
• Excellent communication skills

Starting date: 1 April 2016 or later
Duration of stipend: 3 years, with the possibility of extension
Deadline for registration (exclusively online via web form):  8 November 2015
