The Institute for Biomedicine is home to an international and interdisciplinary team of scientists, students and support staff, integrated in an excellent network of international and national partners. Living and working in Bozen/Bolzano allows you to experience a unique combination of Alpine and Mediterranean culture right at the heart of one of the most exciting mountain regions in Europe.
The Institute for Biomedicine is performing biomedical research into how the origin and the development of diseases are influenced by genetic disposition, by environmental factors, and by individual lifestyles. Our research is centered around the Cooperative Health Research In South Tyrol (CHRIS) study, a unique pedigree-based longitudinal study on >13,000 general population individuals. Available data encompasses a wide range of omics, including genotypes from arrays, whole-exome sequencing and metabolomics, as well as extensive socio-demographic, clinical and biological cardiometabolic and neuropsychiatric phenotypes.
The successful candidate will perform analysis of both quantitative and qualitative traits available in the CHRIS study, develop software to facilitate analysis, and autonomously write scientific articles.
- Analyze large genomic data sets and interpret results
- Write scripts and software to accelerate analysis and result interpretation
- Network with our partners and represent our study in consortia
- Present results at national and international meetings
- Write scientific articles
- PhD in computational biology, bioinformatics or a related quantitative field
- Minimum two years of post-doc experience
- At least one paper published in a major international journal as first author
- At least one tool/software released to the scientific community
- Experience with the analysis of large genomic datasets – preferably including genome sequence data
- Mastering of at least one programming language, such as Python, Perl, Java, or C++
- Ability to work with different analysis packages in a Linux/Unix environment
- A two-year full-time position
- Access to cutting-edge data and compute resources
- Attractive living and working conditions
