APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: June 4th 2022
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 Foundation is looking for one or more Bioinformatician/Senior Bioinformatician to join the Computational Genomics core unit, which is a scientific support unit embedded within the Human Technopole’s new Genomics Facility. The Computational Genomics core unit will be responsible for the processing of large volumes of ‘omic data generated by the Facility, benefitting from a large High-Performance Computing and Data Storage infrastructure, and from close interaction with a community of computational biologists at HT.
The HT Genomics Facility hosts cutting-edge technologies for high-throughput sequencing, multiple single-cell profiling technologies, as well as spatial transcriptomics instruments.
The Computational Genomics core unit will be responsible for setting up and maintaining state-of-the-art computational workflows for all data generated by the facility, including genome, transcriptome and epigenome sequencing data (both high throughput and bespoke), as well as single-cell technologies. A key mission will be to ensure the delivery of computational analyses for large-scale and single-cell multi-omics projects to the Institute’s Research Centres. The unit will also be expected to contribute to the development of new optimised analysis pipelines, and the rapid standardization/implementation of new computational approaches for emerging technologies. Reproducibility and robustness of bioinformatics analyses, using standardised and modular workflows, will be at the core of this role.
The successful candidate will report initially to the acting head of the genomics facility.
The Bioinformatician/Senior Bioinformatician of the Computational Genomics core unit will:
