The Laboratory of Neurogenomic Biomarkers at the Department of Cellular, Computational and Integrative Biology (CIBIO, University of Trento) is looking for a Computational Biologist or Bioinformatician to work on a research project funded by the Fondazione Italiana Autismo focusing on the genomics of autism and autism-related phenotypes.

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD-level scientist or MSc with previous experience in the analysis of large scale genomic data (sequencing, array and methylation data) and their integration with phenotypic metadata. The selected candidate will work in a multidisciplinary team dedicated to the understanding of the genetic basis for the heterogeneity of psychiatric disorders and the interplay between environmental factors and multiple risk factors, enjoying the availability of an extensive collaborative network with the psychiatry genetics scientific community. A minimum of one-year experience in a related field is required, whilst previous interest and knowledge in brain disorders would be a plus.

The position will be initially funded for one year (starting Feb 2021), with the possibility of yearly renewal.
