The Erasmus MC Cancer Computational Biology Center (CCBC) is a bioinformatics and computational biology research facility. CCBC aims to innovate, facilitate and enhance omics-based cancer research, including genomics and proteomics, within the Erasmus Medical Center Cancer Institute. The objective is to develop and maintain a structured, dedicated and robust infrastructure for combining ongoing activities and creating synergy with different cancer research groups.
As a Bioinformatician you will collaborate in a multi-disciplinary team and should contribute significantly to solve general and specific questions within the cancer research field using your bioinformatics expertise. To accomplish this task, new in-house and publicly available Whole Genome Sequencing, RNA-seq, NGS single cell and proteomics data sets will be interrogated using both publicly and in-house developed computational methods. Furthermore you will develop tools to create and support a sustainable bioinformatics environment that strongly contributes to innovative computational cancer research. You will carry out state-of-the-art work on computational cancer biology using your excellent computer science skills. In a inspiring work environment, you will be a crucial member of a team that facilitates ongoing bioinformatics efforts and build robust long-lasting CCBC infrastructure.
Moreover, the CCBC is continuously recruiting PhD students and Postdocs to strengthen its scientific team. Candidates that meet the criteria are urged to send an open application letter as well.
You have a BSc or MSc degree in Informatics, Bioinformatics or related field with, at least, two years of experience in (Bio)informatics, Statistics or Computer Science. Furthermore demonstrated excellent programming skills in R, Bash and preferably in Python and/or Java are required, together with proven experience in relational databases management systems, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL and Linux operating systems. Experience in analyzing next-generation sequencing data or mass spectrometry-based proteomics data is also a prerequisite.
You have strong analytical and problem solving skills, excellent communication and technical writing skills and are able to work independently and as member of a bioinformatics team. A background in Cancer Biology is a strong plus.
Being able to present a certificate of good conduct, a valid proof of identity, diploma's and/ or relevant registration such as BIG/RGS are conditions for the appointment.
ConditionsWe offer a temporary position starting with one year that can be extended. The gross monthly salary amounts a maximum of € 3.604- (scale 8), depending on your level of education and experience. In addition, we offer an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%, and an individual travel expense budget. The terms of employment are according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Dutch University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
