HT is a new interdisciplinary research institute, created and supported by the Italian government, whose aim is to develop innovative strategies to promote human health and aging through a multidisciplinary and integrated approach, combining genomics, computational and structural biology and neuroscience, as well as data and decisions sciences.
The Human Technopole is looking for a Junior Genomics Software Developer for the Biostatistics Unit in the Genomics Research Centre – Population and Medical Genomics Programme.
Human Technopole (HT) is a new interdisciplinary research institute in Milan, Italy, created and supported by the Italian government whose aim is to develop innovative strategies to promote human health through a multidisciplinary and integrated approach, combining genomics, computational and structural biology, neuroscience, and data and decision sciences. The Population and Medical Genomics Programme is part of the Genomics Research Centre which will deploy large-scale genomic analyses to study the genetic basis of human traits and diseases.
We are looking for a Junior Genomics Software Developer in the Biostatistics Unit, a new state-of-the-art unit for conducting and supporting in statistical analysis and computational implementation of statical models for large and complex phenotypic and genetic datasets. The Unit will rely on data generated by the research teams and the other units in HT to perform complex statistical analyses and develop new approaches for combining different sources of data ranging from omics to common phenotypes and Electronic Health Records.
The unit will also be involved in the analysis of data generated by external collaborators and publicly available data when required. The Unit will benefit from a large High-Performance Computing and Data Storage infrastructure, and from close interaction with an expert community of computational biologists within the Genomics Centre, other Research Centres, and facilities at HT.
The successful candidate will be part of a small team of approximately four scientists with expertise in biostatistics and statistical genetics. They will set up and maintain computational tools for large-scale data analysis and will be involved in the development and implementation of high-performance computational solutions to deploy novel statistical methods for the analysis of cohort and human disease studies, including integration of genetic variation with functional genomics data and high-level phenotypes.
A key mission of the Junior Genomics Software Developer of the Biostatistics Unit will be to develop tools for the analysis of large scale genomic and phenotypic datasets. They will also maintain pipelines to automate the integration of different statistical analysis software and speed up and standardise the workflows within the centre. Moreover, they will help optimising existing methods in order to be computationally efficient and scalable to biobank size cohorts.
The successful candidate will report to the Senior Manager of the Biostatistics unit.
The Junior Genomics Software Developer of the Biostatistics Unit will:
