Job Description:

The Group of Psychiatric Neuroscience at University of Bari Aldo Moro offers an open post-doctoral fellowship in the field of Computational Genomics, Bioinformatics, and Biostatistics for Psychiatry. Candidates who are in the process of writing up their doctoral thesis are welcome to apply.

The Brain Imaging, Networks, and Data mining lab (BIND) directed by Dr. Giulio Pergola, aims to investigate inter-individual variability and the biological basis of major psychiatric disorders by integrating multimodal data (genetic variation, gene expression, structural and functional MRI, neuropsychology, and clinical measures). The research work of the candidate will mainly address the relationship between genetic variation and brain expression of drug target proteins (PI: Prof. Alessandro Bertolino).

The ideal candidate is a young graduate experienced in data science or biostatistics, or keen to work with these computational tools. A basic understanding of biology is necessary. Other skills desired for this position include statistics and coding in R. Experience with network analysis, machine learning software, and advanced statistics is a plus. We expect the successful candidate to be motivated and research-oriented. It is equally important to have a team-working attitude and motivation to fit in the group. Italian language skills are not required.

Bari is a sunny city located by the sea in the east of southern Italy, and the third greatest city south of Rome. The cost of living is low relative to Italian standards. The net monthly salary of the candidate will be approximately 1500 EUR. Please contact Dr. Pergola if you would like to have more information on the position as well as for help about the application for international students (giulio.pergola@uniba.it).
