Radboudumc – Postdoc Vidi project ‘Integrating Metabolomics and Genomics for understanding human Disease’

Job description
The genome bioinformatics research group at the Department of Genetics is looking for an experienced bioinformatics postdoc for the Vidi project entitled “Integrating Metabolomics and Genomics for understanding human Disease”. This project is a collaboration with the translational metabolic laboratory.

Tasks and resposibilities

  • Develop and implement methods for analysis of metabolomics data and the integration of metabolomics and genetics data to improve patient diagnostics;
  • Co-supervise existing PhD students;
  • Develop your own research topic within the genome bioinformatics group.


You have a PhD in bioinformatics/genomics or related subject and have experience in performing bioinformatics research, supervision of students and writing scientific publications. You are practical, goal-oriented and a team-player with experience in programming (java/python), linux and statistical methods (R) and have experience in metabolomics. Ideally you are interested in genetics and genomics and are motivated to develop your own research topics.

The genome bioinformatics group develops novel bioinformatics methods to improve the interpretation of genome variation, and implements and applies bioinformatics methods for large-scale genomics data to identify novel genetic causes of disease and the mechanisms behind them. The genome bioinformatics group is part of the Department of Genetics, which is one of the largest genetics departments in the Europe with more than 300 employees.

The Genome Research division has >100 employees, who work under the umbrella of 20 individual research groups. Our research, which is strong in the areas of genomics, methods development, cell and animal models, as well as the investigation of mechanisms leading to monogenic and multifactorial diseases, is regularly published in high-ranking journals.

Radboudumc strives to be a leading developer of sustainable, innovative and affordable healthcare to improve the health and wellbeing of people and society in the Netherlands and beyond. This is the core of our mission: To have a significant impact on healthcare. To get a better picture of what this entails, check out our strategy.
