Funded by CIBIO-Centre for Integrative Biology. The project will be carried out at the laboratory of Computational Metagenomics http://www.cibio.unitn.it/147/laboratory-of-computational-metagenomics


Within the framework of the ERC project "MetaPG", this subproject aims at developing a set of computational methods to process a very large number of available microbial genomes (>100,000 genomes) and extract genomic features to guide the analysis of shotgun metagenomic data.


The successful candidate should demonstrate to possess the following skills:


- experience in analysis of microbial genomic data


- solid background in statistics


- strong experience in at least one programming language (preferably python)
