We seek a highly motivated bioinformatician who is experienced in next-generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis, bioscientific programming, and processing and analysis large-scale omics data. The candidate will be responsible for the biomedical analysis of NGS, GWAS, and other functional omics data as part of a collaborative research project on the identification of molecular factors associated with the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. The project will use both new and existing biological high-throughput data from patients, healthy controls, as well as in-vitro and in-vivo disease models, with the goal to conduct integrative pathway-, network- and machine learning analyses to improve the understanding of molecular network perturbations in Parkinson’s disease.

Your Profile

  • The candidate will have a PhD or equivalent degree in bioinformatics or computational biology
  • Prior experience in large-scale data processing and bioscientific programming is required
  • A track record of previous publications in bioinformatics analysis of omics data should be outlined in the CV
  • Demonstrated skills and knowledge in next-generation sequencing data analysis, biostatistics, machine learning, pathway and network analysis are highly advantageous
  • The candidate should have a cross-disciplinary aptitude, strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and a keen interest in collaborative biomedical research
  • Fluency in oral and written English

We offer

  • A fully funded position with a very competitive salary.
  • An opportunity to join the Luxembourg Centre of Systems Biomedicine with an international and interdisciplinary ethos.
  • Working in a scientifically stimulating, innovative, dynamic, well- equipped, and international surrounding.
  • Opportunity to work closely with international academic partners.
  • State-of-the-art research facilities and computational equipment

Further Information

Applications should contain the following documents (ideally combined into one pdf document):

  • A detailed Curriculum vitae
  • A motivation letter, including a brief description of past research experience and future interests, as well as the earliest possible starting date
  • Copies of degree certificates and transcripts
