postdoctoral fellowship in Bioinformatics (29 months) @ Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB),Belgium


Position details:

Genetic and nutritional influences on the root architecture of Brassicaceae species
Nitrogen (N) is the quantitatively most important nutrient required by crops, however a considerable fraction of N fertilizer gets lost as runoffs with detrimental consequences to the environment and greenhouse gas emission. Faced with those pressing societal costs, innovation has to make a step change to improve Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) of plants. While the root organ is largely out of sight, the proposal aims at modifying root architecture (more branched system) to take up N sources more efficiently and thereby provides a sustainable and bio-economical solution to maintain crop productivity whilst reducing N input. The goal of this research is to first identify the genetic determinism that regulate N-related root morphology in the model species Arabidopsis, then to use that information in parented Brassica crops for redesigning their root architecture and ultimately improve NUE.

Relevant experience:

  • RNAseq, genome wide association, ShoreMap, gene network regulation

CodersCrowd for Bioinformatics CrowdCoding.


Bioinformatics CrowdCoding

Whether you publish a problem, or you solve one, the more you contribute at CodersCrowd the more you learn. Technology is moving fast and as a computational biologist you need to be a fast learner. You can read books, follow online tutorials or attend conferences, but the learning curve is not comparable to the one you get from learning by doing. CodersCrowd let you try and be corrected, no matter the complexity or the simplicity of your code is, our community will just bring its expertise to let you know how to do things the right way.

milestones for CodersCrowd

  • First the app was built as a code sharing platform.
  • code exchanged by the usersrunnable, including the most used libraries in Bioinformatics, such as bioperl, biopython, bioconductor

PhD Position (on final financing) @ The Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN)


Position details:

The applicant should contribute to the junior research group ‘Phenotyping of animal welfare’ while pursuing his/her own qualification (PhD degree). The aim of the junior research group is the compilation of a list of a animal-based, practically applicable markers for the assessment of animal welfare. Mathematical models for the interplay of genetics and behavior have been developed within the ‘PHANOMICS’ project. The prospective PhD student should incorporate knowledge, which is available in literature sources around the world, into these models to extend and refine them. The goal is to verify existing or to identify new marker candidates (from molecular biology or behavior physiology).


  • University degree (MSc-level) in bioinformatics, biomathematics, agricultural sciences, or any related discipline
  • Programming skills (e. g., Java, R, MATLAB)
  • Familiarity with text mining and/or modeling of complex biological data is a plus
  • Proficiency in English, spoken as well as written
  • Personal initiative, capability for teamwork, and independent working style within this highly interdisciplinary junior research group
We are a modern internationally oriented research institute. The compatibility of career and family is one of our central aims. The Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN) is committed to increase the proportion of women in areas where they are underrepresented. Qualified women are encouraged to apply. Handicapped applicants will be given preference if they are equally qualified. Only candidates can be considered who fulfill the requirements for temporal contracts according to § 2 WissZeitVG.

How to apply
