    Data scientist | Postdoctoral researcher

    2 years, start date 1-1-2022 Within the context of the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJPRD, coordinated by dr. Julkowska, Inserm, Paris), we are looking for an ambitious data scientist, who develops data analysis and integration approaches for multi-omics (genome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome) data from rare disease patients. As a data scientist, you will closely work with clinical researchers from several European Reference Networks (ERNs) and develop improved diagnostic routines, approaches for detecting genetic and environmental modifiers of disease, and drug repurposing strategies. You are committed to the counselling and training of biomedical and clinical researchers in computational approaches. You will contribute to the realization of a digital research environment (DRE) where these computational approaches can be applied and which contributes to the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability (FAIRness) of data, tools and services.

    Tasks and responsibilities
    • Develop and benchmark computational approaches for the analysis of multi-omics data.
    • Lead scientist in the analysis of relevant multi-omics data sets from rare disease patients.
    • Advise and support biomedical scientists and clinicians in multi-omics analyses and FAIR data management.
    • Co-develop software, tooling, services, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) / policy around the FAIR capture, analysis and publication of data and metadata.
    • Participation in national and international meetings and communities such as the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases, RD-Connect, Europe’s bioinformatics infrastructure ELIXIR, the Dutch X-omics infrastructure.
