Op dit moment hebben we één vacature voor een Senior Informatician Cancer Genomics (januari 2019).
Are you that experienced informatician/data scientist who is looking for an exciting new challenge? Hartwig Medical Foundation has a vacancy for an enthusiastic professional who is going to help disclosing and analyzing one of the largest cancer whole genome sequencing databases in the world.
We are looking for a colleague with affinity with cancer research, a collaborative nature, and preferably with extensive ‘big data’ skills for a position in an EU-funded collaborative project between research groups in the EU and Canada.
The main goals of the project are to align mutation analysis and clinical reporting approaches based on whole genome sequencing of cancer genomes and to use cloud infrastructures to disseminate and share very large amounts of data (petabyte scale) for research. In addition, you will be involved in mining the unique resource for novel biological insights and improving cancer precision medicine.
You will locally be working in a small team of experts, including software engineers, bioinformaticians, molecular biologists and clinical experts at the Hartwig Medical Foundation in Amsterdam and internationally collaborate with experts at leading cancer genomics institutes in Germany, France, Spain and Canada.
Hartwig Medical Foundation (HMF) is a unique Dutch initiative that enables advances in cancer research and care. It is a not-for-profit organisation supported by philantropy, which operates the first national cancer whole genome sequencing centre and database. More information about the organisation and its activities can be found at www.hartwigmedicalfoundation.nl/en.
At it’s high-tech lab in Amsterdam, HMF performs systematic whole genome sequencing and RNAsequencing 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.
You have experience working with large (cancer) genomics data sets and cloud computing. You have extensive programming skills and like to work in a multidisciplinary team involving biologists and medical specialists.
Appointment conditions and salary depend on expertise and background and are subject to negotiation. Interested or need more information?
Duration of the project is 4 years.
Please send your CV and motivation letter or your inquiries before Thursday 31 January 2019 to Edwin Cuppen, scientific director Hartwig Medical Foundation.
