As a bioinformatician, you will give support to researchers in each of the four NIOO-KNAW research departments. Projects are very diverse, ranging from bacteria and fungi to plants, insects, birds and genetic material recovered directly from soil or other environmental samples. Your task is to interact with researchers, ICT staff and data stewards to facilitate researchers in performing their bioinformatics analyses, both for sequencing-based and other data-rich research. This includes tutoring, helping with data management, building pipelines, providing training, and advising researchers. You will not do research yourself.
You will be part of a team with another bioinformatician to give support and advice to researchers during the complete research cycle, develop and give (carpentry) workshops, teaching coding and data science skills to researchers, develop and contribute to existing open-source workflows and learn others how to use them, develop infrastructure consisting of several Linux servers available to researchers, and act as a knowledge hub within the institute by providing documentation and training material.
We expect you to have an academic background, excellent communication skills, well in English, experience with high-throughput sequencing data, a strong motivation and social skills, and a good network of contacts in the bioinformatics community. We are looking for enthusiasm about educating, facilitating and supporting researchers. The position is part of a small, dedicated team that coordinates all aspects of bioinformatics support.
The appointment will initially be for one year with the possibility for extension and is 30,4-38 hours per week (0,8-1,0 FTE). Salary depends on training and work experience. The maximum gross monthly salary coming with a full-time appointment is €4.402,00 (scale 10 of the Collective Agreement for Dutch Universities), excluding 8% holiday pay and a year-end bonus. We offer an extensive package of fringe benefits.
