Metagenomics and SMDs: BASE Millennium Institute makes a public call to postdoctoral

The vacancies are available for chileans and foreigners with an academic degree of Doctor in accredited national programs or their foreign equivalents, in disciplines related to the required profiles. Applications will be open until February 28, 2023.

The Institute Biodiversity of Antarctic and Subantarctic Ecosystems (IBASE) seeks to provide postdoctoral positions in Metagenomics (1) and Niche Models or Species Distribution Models (1), a call to which Chileans or foreigners can participate to carry out research within the framework of Project ICN2021_002.

For the position of Niche Models or Species Distribution Models (SDMs), a person is sought for biodiversity research in Antarctic and Subantarctic areas, with management of software in the field of Geographic Information Systems, preferably ArcGis. In addition, with medium-advanced handling of R Language, knowledge of modeling packages and script development.

On the other hand, for the scientific postdoctoral position in Metagenomics, a professional is sought for studies of the biodiversity of microbial and benthic, Antarctic and Subantarctic communities, through the bioinformatic analysis of massive sequencing data (metabarcoding and metagenomics). Experience in metagenomics and metabarcoding data generation and analysis, skills in metagenomics and metabarcoding analysis, bioinformatics software, and database mining are required.

The background presentation must be made through the email and the deadline expires on February 28, 2023. The final resolution regarding the award of postdoctoral positions will be made by the Council of Principal Investigators of the project the first fortnight of March 2023, and will be subsequently ratified by the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID).
