A postdoctoral fellowship from Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) is available inside the project "Genes, Genomes & Transposable Elements contribution to plant-microbe interaction: a sugarcane study case." We are looking for a candidate with innovative ideas to use bioinformatics tools to reveal candidate genes related to molecular mechanisms of the plant-microbe interactions.

The research activity of the successful applicant will be held within the Genomics Group of the Department of Genetics, at ESALQ-University of Sao Paulo. The research project involves computational strategies to combine 'omics' data and to dissect candidate genes associated with plant-pathogen interaction. This position is intended to a computational researcher. As such, the successful candidate will collaborate mainly in data analysis.

The project is funded by FAPESP. The laboratory has an excellent infrastructure and a multidisciplinary team to collaborate in the study. Candidates must have a recent PhD in Sciences in a topic related to Bioinformatics and Genomics with prior experience and published papers. Previous experience with sugarcane fungal-pathosystems is a plus.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. The selected candidate will receive a FAPESP’s Post-Doctoral fellowship in the amount of R$ 7,174.80 monthly and a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.

The fellowship is for 24 months and the candidates must send a message to Professor Claudia Barros Monteiro Vitorello via email.

The candidate must attach a CV, a cover letter and a letter of recommendation.
