Requirements
Candidates must have a bachelor and master degree in a quantitative field (e.g. computer science, applied mathematics/statistics, (bio)physics, bioinformatics) with a strong interest in biological and immunological challenges. Prior knowledge of molecular biology, genetics, and immunology is an advantage.
Essential requirements:
•    Strong experience and fluency in several programming languages such as Python, Matlab, C++, Java, Perl, and/or R.
•    Statistics and data analysis skills.
•    Basic knowledge of UNIX-like operating systems and shell scripting.
•    Strong analytical skills, in addition to creativity, curiosity, enthusiasm, and ability to work in a team.
•    Excellent command of the English language
•    The average of all marks of the bachelor and master must better than 0.75 (on a normalised scale of 0 (worst) to 1 (best)). This is a formal requirement by the UIC. Please state your average mark for your bachelor and master in your letter of motivation (and show supporting documents as an attachment). Applications not containing this information or marks averages below 0.75 cannot be considered. Also applicants without a master degree (or who already hold a PhD) can formally not be considered.
Optional skills:
•    Knowledge of common bioinformatics techniques (e.g. molecular docking, clustering, sequence alignment) and tools (Autodock, Gromacs, Blast, etc)
•    Experience with the use of computing clusters
•    Teaching experience and/or ability in Spanish/Catalan is a plus
 
Offer
The successful candidate will work in an exciting project in the field of computational simulations of the immune system and assist the experimentalists of the department with their data analysis.
Access to high performance computers is available.
The position will be about 1200 EUR / month for 10 months. During the final months of this time a PhD student position funded for up to 4 years will be advertised for which the candidate is encouraged to apply.
Please note that Spanish living costs are considerably lower than in most central/northern European countries.
The successful candidate can start immediately.
 
For more information and to submit your application please email Bernhard Knapp (bknapp@uic.es).
