EvoGenomics, Natural history Museum of Denmark

Faculty of Science

University of Copenhagen

The Aage V Jensen Naturfonden DNAmark project at the Natural History Museum of Denmark is looking for a motivated bioinformatic postdoc for a period of 2 years and 4 months. In the project, we set up a Danish DNA reference database based at the National Museum of Denmark and use shotgun data to generate organelle genome references. An important part of the project is development of laboratory and bioinformatic workflows for generation of such reference data across sample types and for both newly collected specimens and museum specimens. This project will create the groundwork for further expansions of the DNA reference database, e.g. to include whole taxonomical groups and for the use of environmental DNA in biodiversity and nature management projects in Denmark. The project is lead by Dr. Kristine Bohmann and Prof Tom Gilbert in the EvoGenomics section at the Natural History Museum of Denmark. In the project, the postdoc will work closely with a lab research assistant and a project coordinator in a international and social environment in the EvoGenomics section.

Main tasks:
Develop bioinformatic workflows for processing sequence reads for generation and upload of reference data (conventional barcode markers and organelle genomes) across taxonomic groups and for both newly collected and museum specimens

Assembly of organelle genomes and quality control

Assess and compare sequence data generated with different laboratory protocols

Participate in reference database establishment and data upload and storage

Participate in publications on laboratory and bioinformatic workflows for reference data generation

Participate in development of methods to make use of such extensive DNA reference database in environmental DNA studies

Qualifications:
PhD degree

Extensive experience with bioinformatic handling of shotgun sequence data, preferably aDNA and/or eDNA

Experience with collection and registration of samples for DNA analyses

Extensive DNA laboratory experience with generation of next generation sequence data, preferably aDNA and/or eDNA

Preferably experience working in a natural history museum

High attention to detail

Independent, focused and productive

Team-worker

Fluent in spoken and written English
