Position open for a bioinformatician in RIKEN Yokohama, Japan.
the team where I do my research, in the Omics Science Center of the RIKEN
Yokohama institute (Japan) is opening a position for a bioinformatician in a
joint project with the RIKEN Brain Science Institute (Wakô, Japan).
In this project, we will analyse the synaptic plasticity by performing a global
analysis of the RNAs present in the dendrites of the Purkinje cells of the
cerebellum (that are very big neurons with a lot of ramifications, which is why
they are often the target of scientific experimentation). The analysis will
generate a lot of data, in the order of a gigabyte of nucleic acid sequences.
We have developped methods to use these sequences in a quantitative manner
to determine which gene is activated by our experiments.
We are looking for a new collaborator who would participate to the data
analysis. We welcome candidatures from the level of technical staff to
The project, and therefore the contract, will last until September 31st 2011.
There is an open call on the RIKEN website:
Do not hesitate to forward it to your contacts who may be interested.
Have a nice day,
