Featured RNA-Seq Job – Computational Biologist

A Computational Biologist or Bioinformatician position is offered by the laboratory of Dr. Maite Huarte of CIMA research institute in Pamplona, Spain.

The position is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) with the possibility of at least a 5-year contract. It offers the opportunity to apply cutting-edge genomic technologies to elucidate the role of noncoding RNAs in genome regulation in cancer. The work will be in permanent collaboration with an interactive international team of basic and translational researchers.

The successful candidate will:

  • Participate in the planning, processing, analysis and interpretation of next generation sequencing experiments for the study of RNA biology, gene regulation and epigenetics (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ChIRP-seq, RIP-seq, iCLIP-seq, HI-C, etc.)
  • Analyze and integrate cancer genomic data
  • Participate in the development of data analysis workflows and pipelines for high throughput “omics” data.
  • Collaborate in multiple projects, having the possibility to carry on a personal research project.

Required qualifications:

  • University degree or postgraduate training in computational biology & bioinformatics
  • Experience in the data processing and statistical analysis of high-throughput genomic data
  • Knowledge of informatics tools and visualization/data mining packages and an aptitude for optimally adapting them to specific problems
  • Knowledge of statistical programming environment (R/Bioconductor, Matlab) and programming languages (Perl, Python, Java…)
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English
  • Good organizational, communication and interpersonal skills

Desirable qualifications:

  • Familiarity with Linux/Unix environment and high performance computing (clusters)
  • Experience in interdisciplinary collaborations on bioinformatics services
  • Familiarity with contemporary basic biology and biomedical research topics

Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing past experience and interests as well as their CV including references to: Maite Huarte, maitehuarte@unav.es. T + 34 948 194 700 ext 4000
