Are you the experienced bioinformatician who is going to join the Hartwig Medical Foundation to explore one of the largest cancer whole genome sequencing databases world-wide?

About the job
We are looking for an enthousiastic colleague with extensive genomics data analysis skills, affinity with cancer research and a collaborative nature.
You will be working in a small team of experts, including software engineers, bioinformaticians, molecular biologists and clinical experts at the Hartwig Medical Foundation in Amsterdam.

At it’s high-tech lab in Amsterdam, HMF performs systematic whole genome sequencing and RNA-sequencing of tumor biopsies, which are collected in over 45 Dutch hospitals. Advanced bioinformatic analyses result in a comprehensive inventory of all types of mutations in each individual patient. This data is used for creating patient reports that are returned to the hopitals for supporting targeted therapy decision making. Furthermore, all data is stored in a central database where it is complemented with patient and treatment data. HMF makes this data publicly available for research and actively supports research on the database.

About you
You have experience working with large genomics data sets, preferably whole genome sequencing data and/or cancer genomics data. You have extensive programming skills and like to work in a multidisciplinary team involving biologists and medical specialists.
