Comparative Genomics of Non-Model Invertebrates

Deadline extended: Still time to apply for 1 of 15 PhD/Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions!

We are happy to announce that the application deadline for all of the 15 PhD/Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions, offered by IGNITE is now extended to 3rd of April 2018 (​12:​00 CET). All positions will be opened on 1st of July 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The well-trained genome scientists emerging from IGNITE will be in great demand in universities, research institutions, as well as in software, biomedical, agrofood and pharmaceutical companies. Through their excellent interdisciplinary and intersectoral training spanning from biology and geobiology to bioinformatics and computer science, our graduates will be in a prime position to take up leadership roles in both academia and industry in order to drive the complex changes needed to advance sustainability of our knowledge-based society and economy.

The IGNITE consortium acknowledges that genomics is still a largely male-dominated field and aims to change this situation. Females are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.
