Within the Department of Human Genetics, we implement and apply the latest genome analysis technologies for patient diagnostics including microarrays, exome and genome sequencing, long-read sequencing for many different genetic tests. We are looking for a bioinformatician to pioneer the analysis of long-read whole genome sequencing based on PacBio technology.
You work within a young team of bioinformaticians and programmers embedded in the Department of Human Genetics responsible for development of novel technologies for patient diagnostics and translational research: analyzing genetic data for patient diagnostics. Your work will consist of implementing quality control, analysis and interpretation of long-read sequencing data for human genomes.
You have a master's degree or PhD in bioinformatics or related discipline. You are goal-oriented and able to work independently and efficiently, and you have a drive to finish projects. You will work in close collaboration with molecular geneticists and other bioinformaticians and therefore have a proactive and collaborative attitude and excellent communication skills. You have experience in Linux and high-level programming, preferably in Java. You have a good understanding of genetics, and preferably some experience with long-read technologies. You're eager to learn new things and like to be intellectually challenged.
ConditionsUpon commencement of employment we require a certificate of conduct (Verklaring Omtrent het Gedrag, VOG) and there will be, depending on the type of job, a screening based on the provided cv. Radboud university medical center's HR Department will apply for this certificate on your behalf.
