A PhD student position

A PhD student position is available for 4 years at the Department of Biology and Ecology, Faculty of Science, University of Ostrava, Czech Republic. There are ongoing projects in two different fields: protist genomics or genetic anthropology.

  1. Genome analysis of the Ket people of Siberia and neighboring populations, for the first time demonstrating their links to ancient and modern Native North Americans.
  2. Y-STR study of ancient Xiongnu samples from China revealing a possible genetic link of Ket and Xiongnu, and tracing the hypothetical Xiongnu dispersal during the Hunnic migrations. We work mostly in silico, obtaining data from our collaborators.
  3. Genomics of marine diplonemids, emerging as the third most diverse eukaryotic clade in plankton: transcriptome and genome sequencing of cultivated clade representatives, single-cell transcriptomics, metabarcoding.
  4. Projects related to software design (in collaboration with Evgeny Gerasimov, Moscow State University): a GUI tool for genome assembly post-processing via contig graph analysis; a read mapper tailored to transcriptomes with extensive insertion/deletion RNA editing.

My group currently includes 1 PhD student and 1 postdoc and has funding secured for 3 years. Starting net salary for a PhD student is approximately 630 EUR. Requirements for the position are the following:

  • experience in NGS data analysis or genetics;
  • working knowledge of English.

Applications have to be submitted via email until the end of May 2015. Acceptance decision will be based on a skype interview and a test assignment.
