OFFER DESCRIPTION

The International Center for Translational Eye Research (ICTER) is a multi-investigator center for eye research as related to imaging and biochemical techniques to support advances in understanding the etiology and treatment of human blinding diseases. Further information on the research priorities and current expertise of our Center can be found at http://www.icter.pl.

The group is led by Dr Marcin Tabaka (PI) and initially will comprise the following staff: 2 postdocs, 2 PhD students and a lab manager. The group will leverage high-throughput single-cell RNA and ATAC sequencing to address fundamental questions in eye research (https://scg-lab.com).

The Institute is seeking a highly motivated and creative researcher with a Ph.D. degree interested in analysis of high-throughput single-cell transcriptomics and epigenomics datasets. The candidate should have a strong background in bioinformatics/computational biology and be experienced in analyzing highly dimensional biological datasets. No single-cell genomics background is required just an inclination to acquire such knowledge is a must.
