Postdoctoral Fellowship in bioinformatics in BrazilPosted by: Genoma USP
Posted date: Feb-15-2020
Location: Sao Paulo
The Project Xenotransplantation Brazil is recruiting a full-time post-doctoral position in bioinformatics with demonstrated experience in using next generation sequencing data and robust computational approaches to study and to characterize the peripheral blood immune repertoire of humans and animal models. There will be a special interest in analyzing HLA and SLA data. The Project Xenotransplantation Brazil is leading an innovative project that aims to genetically modify pigs so their organs can be transplanted to humans. The successful applicant will join the Laboratory of Immunology, Heart Institute ( InCor ), School of Medicine, USP and will work in close collaboration with the Computational Systems Biology Laboratory at University of São Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil, which is comprised of a dynamic, interdisciplinary group of researchers including immunologists, clinicians, and bioinformaticians. His/her activities will be supervised by Professor Jorge Kalil and Helder Nakaya (http://csbiology.com/team-view/helder-naka ya/).
