Ref: 15-65 BP/IRS/HQ
The International Potato Center (CIP) is seeking a Bioinformatics Postdoc competent in 2ndgeneration sequence analysis to work with a dynamic multidisciplinary team to expand our knowledge of the diversity and conservation of plant genetic resources of cultivated potato and sweetpotato in the Genebank.
The Center: CIP is a not-for-profit international agricultural research for development institution with a focus on potato, sweet potato, and Andean Root and Tuber Crops. Its vision is to enhance the use of roots and tubers crops to improve the livelihood of the poor. CIP is dedicated to achieving food security, improved well-being, and gender equality for poor people in root and tuber farming and food systems of the developing world. CIP is headquartered in Lima, Peru with staff and activities in over 30 locations across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. CIP is a member of the CGIAR Consortium, a network of 15 research centers that are mostly located in the developing world and supported by more than 50 donor members.
The Genebank: The Genebank maintains the global collection of potato, sweet potato and Andean Root and Tuber, with over 15,000 clonal accessions and almost 4,000 accessions from wild relatives of the cultivated crops maintained as seed. CIP’s Genebank has used next-generation sequencing (NGS) to genotype the entire cultivated potato and sweet potato collections and is conducting whole genome sequencing (WGS) of 10 potato taxa.
The Position: The Bioinformatics Postdoc will report to the Program Leader for Conserving Biodiversity for the Future and will be based in Lima, Peru. The main task will be to aid our efforts in evaluating different kinds of molecular data to broaden our understanding of the phylogeny and population structure of our potato and sweetpotato collections. The successful candidate should have the skills required to analyze large genotyping datasets (DArTseq, GBS, Marker/SNP-based), to handle phenotyping data and establish marker trait associations. Prerequisite is also competence in data quality assessment, cleaning and methods of data storage.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Conditions: Employment contract will be for a one-year term (with a three month probation period). Salary will be internationally competitive, paid in US dollars, and commensurate with experience. CIP prides itself on its collegial and supportive working environment, which allows space for personal and professional growth.
Applications: Applicants should apply by email, sending a cover letter summarizing their relevance to this position, a full C.V. and the names and contact information of three referees knowledgeable about the candidate's professional qualifications and work experience to email@example.com. The reference name of the position should be clearly marked on the subject line of the email message. Screening of applications will begin on 29, January, 2016 and will continue until the post is filled. All applications will be acknowledged, however only short listed candidates will be contacted.
