Post Doctoral position BGG-1:Bioinformatics for the melon project 2009/2010

Post Doctoral position BGG-1*/: Bioinformatics for the melon project

The BGG is part of the Melonomics project, a project sponsored by Genoma
Espa├▒a to sequence the melon genome. Sequencing will be performed using
a combination of the traditional BAC based approach, and the new
sequencing technologies (454 and solexa).

The main task of the candidate will be to use available tools, as well
as to develop appropriate tools for genome assembly and gene annotation.

The candidate should have a very strong background in comparative
genomics, and should be familiar with the most common tools for genome
assembly and gene finding and annotation. The candidate should also be
very skilled with scripting languages. A background in Plant Genomics is
a plus.
