A position for a software engineer in bioinformatics will be available at the Institut des Sciences de l’Evolution de Montpellier (ISEM, UMR-5556, http://www.isem.univ-montp2.fr), in collaboration with SupAgro (http://www.supagro.fr), in the framework of the Ancestrome project, recently funded by the ANR agency on the Bioinformatics Investissement d’avenir call (http://lbbe-dmz.univ-lyon1.fr/ancestrome/spip_ancestrome/).
Ancestrome aims at studying genome organization and functioning of extant living organisms to build integrative models to reconstruct evolutionary
intermediates together with the evolutionary processes that have generated them.
The candidate will support researchers involved the Ancestrome project:
• developing software and web services – in conjunction with the team MBB platform – to distribute new methods conceived as part of the Ancestrome project.
• using prototyping and method validation (via tests on real or simulated data) to test these new methodologies.
