LUMC – Postdoc SUMO & Mitosis

As a member of our research group you will investigate the mechanisms and functional consequences of post-translational protein modification by SUMO (Small Ubiquitin-like Modifier). You will study the important roles of SUMOylation in cell cycle progression at a proteome-wide level and at the level of individual target proteins. We expect that targeting SUMO signal transduction in cancer cells will yield a novel anti-cancer therapy. Continue reading

UMC Groningen – Postdoc/coordinator EU cohort, rare disease and omics projects

To promote smooth operation of large European and National data science projects in the area of cohorts, (rare) disease, and multi-omics. You will facilitate collaboration between principle investigators, PhD students, data scientists, engineers and managers, highlight (research) opportunities, promote collaboration and coordinate project deliverables in a timely manner, drive internal and external communication including organisation and preparation of semi-annual and specific project meetings to ensure a smooth progress of the research. You will be part of a social, multi-site, multi-disciplinary team of project coordinators, researchers and team leaders who together coordinate all things happening between GCC and our partners. Depending on your background and ambitions you can also take the lead in scientific publications. Continue reading

UMC Groningen – Postdoc biomedical data models, ontologies and federated analysis

To lead our ‘FAIR’ research line towards integrated analysis of large biobanks and multi-center studies in (rare)disease. Big data holds huge promise to accelerate research in human health and disease, but biomedical data is very heterogeneous and fragmented impeding integrated analysis. You will research ontologies and linked data models and methods and develop smart data integration tools for large scale retrospective data integration and ‘federated’ analysis, considering the fact that health data is often privacy sensitive and involve security/anonymity constraints. Continue reading

Genetwister – Senior Software Engineer

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our software development team in Wageningen, The Netherlands. If you want to build software solutions to analyze and visualize complex genomic data but also contribute to develop an environment in which pipelines and tools from other departments of the company can be integrated. Continue reading

BaseClear – Junior Bioinformatician

For our growing Bioinformatics department, we are currently looking for enthusiastic and motivated candidates for the function of: Junior Bioinformatician (M/F). The candidate will be mainly responsible for data management and analysis of genome and transcriptome sequencing in NGS projects. Continue reading

Erasmus MC – Postdoctoral researcher on Mass Spectrometry Imaging of Lipids in Atherosclerosis

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in mass spectrometry imaging, to investigate the lipid composition of atherosclerotic plaques in coronary and carotid artery specimens. Lipids reflect the local metabolic and transport processes in the artery wall, which are affected in unknown ways by systemic or local therapeutic interventions. We will relate the molecular make-up of the lesion to optical spectroscopy to enable in-vivo lipid type imaging. Continue reading

Maastricht University – PhD-candidate for the NanoCommons project, FHML/NUTRIM – Department of BioInformatics

This project will focus on using a formal ontology to create a common language to unify research in these fields, among which is the research done in the EU NanoSafety Cluster (NSC). You will actively work together with many international projects and institutes to combine the ontology with approaches to further the European research into nanotechnologies. Among these are projects like eNanoMapper, OpenRiskNet, and EU-ToxRisk. The eNanoMapper project developed an initial ontology, which is continued in the NSC and in this project. This ontology needs continued development which you will coordinate using Open Science approaches. Adoption will be encouraged via collaborations but also using social media channels used by research peers. Continue reading
