    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Scientist, functional genomics/imaging @ CBM - Cluster in Biomedicine--Trieste, Italy
    Submitted by Remo Sanges; posted on Thursday, October 01, 2009



    CBM - Cluster in Biomedicine wishes to recruit a Bioinformatics Scientist to perform the analysis of genomics and imaging data as part of an FP7 approved Industry-Academia Partnership Program focused on imaging and genomics of allergic asthma animal models (


    Within this project, the new recruit will:
    • Oversee the overall scientific progress of the project, ensuring that transfer of knowledge activities are achieved and integrated.
    • Implement a bioinformatics analysis platform to store, manage and analyze genomics and imaging data.
    • Identify novel biomarkers using genomics data and analyze in vivo data obtained using optical imaging technologies.
    The candidate will be responsible for developing and implementing strategies for the analysis, integration and presentation of gene expression and imaging data. More specifically the technologies to be used in the project focus on:
    • Expression profiling data from microarray (Affymetrix and Illumina).
    • Expression profiling data from next generation sequencing (Solexa).
    • Analysis of optical imaging data on tissue samples.
    • Data integration.


    The new recruit must hold a PhD or have 4-10 years work experience with a record of scientific publications and at least one publication in a peer-reviewed journal as first author. The interdisciplinary nature of the positions requires solid foundations in at least three fields among the next: biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics and imaging. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate the ability to work in a UNIX/Linux environment and be proficient with at least two among: a scripting language (e.g. Perl), a database system (e.g. MySQL) and a statistical programming environment (e.g R). Previous experience with next-generation sequencing data and with genomics databases as well as an understanding of statistical methods and mathematical models used in the interpretation of biological data is a desirable asset.

    The aim of this position is to increase knowledge flow throughout Europe and, according to the regulations of the funding programme (FP7 Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnership Programme), the newly recruited researcher shall not have Italian nationality; moreover, the researcher must have not resided or carried out their main activity in the host country (Italy) for more than 12 months in the last 3 years. In the case of a newly recruited researcher holding more than one nationality, he/she will be an eligible candidate if (s)he has not resided in Italy during the last 5 years. As an exception to the general rule, a researcher holding Italian nationality is an eligible candidate if s/he has legally resided and had his/her main activity in a non-Member State or in a non-Associated Country for at least three of the last four years.
