    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow -- Heidelberg Human Bioinformatics (HD-HuB) (#HD_00817) @ EMBL -- Heidelberg, Germany
    Submitted by EMBL Recruitment; posted on Thursday, January 28, 2016


    The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).


    We are seeking a Bioinformatician to join the Zeller team in the area of metagenomics and human multi-omics data analysis, integration and interpretation. You will develop new analytical methods, implement robust software and integrate tools into workflows and service portals. The position is embedded in the context of the German National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Network (de.NBI), of which the Heidelberg Human Bioinformatics (HD-HuB) node is committed to providing human-centered bioinformatics tools and services. Your experience acquired while working with these tools will be the basis for delivering insightful, high-quality data analyses, showcasing the potential of these tools in a range of different research projects. For this you will have the opportunity to work closely with other scientists from Georg Zeller's, Peer Bork's, Wolfgang Huber's, Jan Korbel's and / or Toby Gibson's groups. Additionally, you will interact with, and ideally participate in, internal bioinformatics community initiatives at EMBL (e.g. the Bio-IT project) and explore synergies with external de.NBI / HD-HuB support.


    Requirements for this position include: a PhD degree, preferably with a technical, methods-oriented focus and with exposure to biological research. Programming skills (knowledge of R and / or Python are most valuable) and familiarity with Unix / Bash are essential. The ideal candidate will additionally have experience with some of the following: developing and maintaining bioinformatics tools; deploying software, e.g. as a web service, Galaxy pipeline or virtual machine; and / or knowledge of HTML and web development. Expertise in analyzing microbiome or other high-throughput genomic data is a plus. Good communication and organisational skills including written and spoken English are required (German language proficiency is not essential). A desire and ability to work well within a team are key to success in this environment.
