APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: 16 Dec. 2020
The Human Technopole is seeking an experienced Bioinformatician providing computational support to projects focusing on computational pharmacogenomics and engaged in the analysis of data from genome-editing, pharmaco/functional-genomics and single cell transcriptomics screens.
The selected candidate will join the research group led by Francesco Iorio, within the Centre for Computational Biology, actively interacting with the other research centres at Human Technopole, as well as national and international collaborators, such as those involved in the Cancer Dependency Map partnership, whose broad goal is to systematically identify cancer vulnerabilities and dependencies that could be exploited therapeutically.
The successful candidate will be able to implement and use new computational pipelines for pre-processing and quality control assessment of data from genome-editing screens, whole exome and whole genome sequencing databases, scRNA and bulk transcriptomic profiling, as well as developing new analytical methods and tools on an individual project needs’ basis.
Past experience with genomic data curation and familiarity with the management of data from large-scale in-vitro drug/functional-genomic screens will be positively considered.
Please apply sending a CV and motivation letter in English only through the dedicated area.
