The BCTL directed by Prof. Christos Sotiriou MD, PhD, is located at the Institut Jules Bordet (Faculty of Medicine, Université Libre de Bruxelles), the only comprehensive cancer centre in Belgium.
The current research projects of the lab include:
- Molecular characterization of breast cancer using several “omics” techniques including NGS, CNA arrays and single cell analysis to study tumour heterogeneity, disease progression and resistance to treatment(s);
- Several translational research projects are part of international clinical studies.
The candidate is expected to lead his/her own projects and mentor graduates students. He/she must be highly motivated, able to work independently and show strong analytical and organizational skills.
The candidate should hold a PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology or biostatistics and should show strong interest for cancer research, genomics, bioinformatics and translational medicine. Applicants should have prior experience in NGS data analysis. Moreover, strong programming skills (R, Python/Perl) and familiarity with UNIX environment are required.
Fluency in English is expected. Practical knowledge in French is a plus.
The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic and interdisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians and bioinformaticians to work at the forefront of breast cancer translational research.
Initial funding is available for 2 years, with possible extension for 2 additional years.
Starting date may be adapted if needed.
