The Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo (IAC-CNR) in Naples, Italy, is seeking for applicants for a fully funded 3 year PhD position for the project “Development of statistical methods and computational tools for the integration of multi-omic data”. The position is supported by the HORIZON 2020/Marie Sklodowska Curie Action INCIPIT.

Multi-omic data integration is challenging due to the high dimensionality and heterogeneity of the information sources, to the noise and to the complexity of the biological mechanisms. Aim of this PhD project is to develop novel statistical methods and computational tools for integrating multi-omic data such as those collected by next generation sequencing platforms.  The project will be developed under the supervision of Dr. Claudia Angelini (IAC-CNR).

The application deadline is March 30, 2017. Detailed project description, eligibility criteria and application for can be found at:
