postdoc in bioinformatics – computational methods for immuno-therapies

University of Pavia
Department of Biology and Biotechnology
Italy Pavia


We have now an open call for a #postdoc position (research fellowship / assegno di ricerca) to work in the context of an Italian national project, called Immuno-Hub, funded by the Ministry of Health under a strategy for biotechnology, bioinformatics and pharmaceutical development.
The postdoc will contribute to developing computational methods and analysis pipelines for in-silico guided selection of antibodies and vaccines, based on #NGS data. Within the research goals of the lab (, this scientist will also contribute to the implementation of #deeplearning algorithms for the analysis of genomic sequences and variants, and participate to building a bioinformatics platform within the project (BioinfPharma Lab Network).
The Department of Biology and Biotechnology is a international and stimulating environment, at the University of Pavia, and this is a unique opportunity to participate to a forward-looking initiative, with significant impact in the development of immuno-therapies and pharmaceuticals (ex. nanobodies). Funding for this post is available for three years.


- Master's degree preferentially in Biology, Biotechnology or Bioengineering
- Enrolled in or awarded a Ph.D preferentially in Genetics, Molecular biology, Bioinformatics and/or equivalent subjects
- Proven experience in using and developing bioinformatics tools for the analysis of genomic sequence data
- Proven experience in using statistical analysis software and in the use of programming languages for bioinformatics
- A level of scientific production suitable for carrying out the research activity is required, attested by at least one scientific publication
