The position will involve interacting mostly with the groups at the institute and on campus, but also with collaborators at Charité in Berlin, Maastricht University, and around the world.

The position will include working with data from genome wide association studies and other high-throughput data generated by the in house Core Facility Genomics particularly next generation sequencing data. The initial project is flexible, depending on the candidate, but it must contribute to the analysis of genomic data related to cardiovascular disorders and inflammation. We expect this to lead to publications in high profile medical journals. Many projects in the group relate to the interplay between genetic and environmental factors in common complex diseases. Other areas of potential development also include: inclusion of functional information and development of new statistical methods/algorithms for the analysis of high-throughput data sets. A candidate may also bring their own research interests to the group.

All applicants must possess a PhD, preferably in: statistics, mathematics, systems biology, molecular biology or some related subject. Statistics and computer skills are essential. Previous experience on genomic high-throughput data analysis is a plus, but not essential. What is important is an interest in molecular biology and some previous experience working with biological data. We kindly ask that applicants explain in their cover letter what interests them about this position, and how their skills and expertise can contribute. We invite applicants both from statistical or biological backgrounds, but both must possess computer skills and an interest and basic understanding of molecular biology. We expect all applicants to have a good publication record; this will be one of the most important criteria for selecting candidates for interview.

We offer a versatile task in an international research team with excellent development opportunities.
