Job description
VIB is looking to expand its Institute-wide bioinformatics platform, BITS (, with a bioinformatics expert.
Your goal will be to support cutting-edge projects involving high throughput genomics datasets generated by whole-genome sequencing projects using multiple platforms (Illumina, SOLiD, 454, Complete Genomics, others).
You will play a key role in setting up a Bioinformatics-infrastructure to enable processing, analysis, visualization and dissemination of genomics datasets, unprecedented in scale.
In this position, you will also broker between VIB scientists and leading genomics and bioinformatics companies to discuss study design, sequence analysis strategies and data processing as well as IT-infrastructure.
You will assist in the analysis of the generated data and disseminate information through comprehensive research reports and presentations. Additionally, you will evaluate new and existing algorithms, software (commercial and open source) and computer infrastructure requirements.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pioneer a bioinformatics platform to enable translational genomics at VIB.

We are seeking an experienced bioinformatics scientist for this position. Ideally, you will have a Master's or PhD Degree in Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Bioinformatics or a related degree. Strong experience with bioinformatics methods, databases, software (especially sequence analysis tools), statistics and managing large data sets is required. A good working knowledge of Linux/Unix and programming languages such as Perl, SQL, R, Java, Python or C would be desirable. Excellent leadership, collaboration, communication and reporting skills are also a requisite.
