Within the context of the Netherlands X-omics Initiative (coordinated by Alain van Gool, Radboudumc), we are looking for an ambitious bioinformatician, who develops data analysis and integration approaches for multi-omics (genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome) data from rare disease patients and population cohorts. As a bioinformatician, you will closely work with biomedical and clinical researchers from Radboudumc and X-omics partners and develop FAIR and reproducible knowledge-based data analysis workflows to investigate disease mechanisms. You are committed to the counselling and training of biomedical and clinical researchers in computational approaches. You will contribute to the realization of a digital research environment (DRE) where these computational approaches can be applied, and which contributes to the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability (FAIRness) of data, tools and services.

  • Co-develop software, tooling, services, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) / policy around the FAIR capture, analysis and publication of data and metadata.
  • Participation in national and international meetings and communities such as the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases, RD-Connect, Europe's bioinformatics infrastructure ELIXIR, the Netherlands X-omics infrastructure.


You have a MSc or PhD in a relevant discipline (data science, biology, bioinformatics, computer science, artificial intelligence) with proven ability to apply and develop bioinformatics tools and workflows. You are familiar with Linux, bash and git, and have programming skills in at least one relevant language (Python, R, Java, C++). You have experience with knowledge-based integration of multi-omics data. You know about FAIR data principles and have knowledge of domain-specific standards (e.g., HUPO-PSI open standard formats for proteomics). You are communicative, enjoy working in multidisciplinary teams and have a proven ability to drive scientific projects.
