With a multicultural and multilingual environment, UCL is open to the world and hosts students and researchers from around the world. The university is highly ranked internationally and is a major employer in Wallonia and the Brussels region. UCL operates faculties, research institutes, and administration to fulfill the three missions of teaching, research, and service to society.

e-OMIX is a new project launched at UCLouvain and aims at establishing a new bioinformatic hub for sharing and leveraging omics data (collected from different platforms quantifying cellular molecular content) across different laboratories in Brussels and Wallonia for research and clinical purposes.

•         Establish bioinformatics pipelines for preprocessing single-omics data (filtering, normalization, control of batch effect, quality control, etc.)
•         Adhere to interoperability standards established by the FIHR consortium Ensure compatibility of omics data collected across different platforms and research groups by implanting HL7 FIHR standards.
•         Integrate different types of omics data to favor a multiomics approach
•         Conceive and automate supervised (regression, variable selection, etc.) or unsupervised (network analyses, clustering, PCA, etc.) statistical analyses.

•         Master’s degree in bioinformatics, statistics, computer sciences, biomedical sciences, bio-engineering, or equivalent
•         Experience and/or keen interest in one or several of the following:
•         One or multiple omics experimental technologies, data processing analysis and/or interpretation
–         interest in developing solutions for the exchange of biomedical data and in multicentric initiatives
–         solid background in statistics, machine learning/artificial intelligence
–         knowledge of one or more programming language (e.g., Rmarkdown, Python, BASH, etc.) and IDE (R, Jupyter notebooks, etc.)
–         collaborative research software development (e.g., unit testing, version control, continuous integration, Git, etc.)
–         experience in R/Bioconductor data structures, in particular those used for omics data analysis (e.g., SummarizedExperiment, SingleCellExperiment, QFeatures, etc.)
–         open and reproducible research
–         contribution to an open and inclusive research environment
–         good written and oral communication skills, english proficiency

We offer:
•         A collaborative work environment: The project is conjointly led by the Computational Biology (CBIO) and Computer Engineering (INGI) units from UCLouvain and will involve other major academic actors.
•         The collaborator will be partly based in the A6K startup incubator in Charleroi, and partly home-based, (with occasional travels to UCLouvain’s Brussels or Louvain-La-Neuve campuses)
•         Flexible workhours
•         Reimbursement of travel expenses
Candidates are invited to send their application (resume and cover letter) at jobs@eomix.be by March 1st2024.
