Description de fonction

Position in bioinformatics and computational biology

Fonction

The BCTL laboratory directed by Pr. Christos Sotiriou MD, PhD, is located at the Institut Jules Bordet (Medicine Faculty, Université Libre de Bruxelles), the only comprehensive cancer centre in Belgium.

The current research projects of the lab include:

- Molecular characterization of breast cancer using several “omics” techniques including NGS, spatial transcriptomics and single cell analysis to study tumour heterogeneity, disease progression and resistance to treatment(s);

- Characterization of the minimal residual disease at the molecular level including the study of circulating tumor cells and circulating tumor DNA;

- Several translational research projects part of international clinical studies.

The position will be dedicated to perform a PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology.

For this position, ideal candidates should hold a Master degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics or bioengineering and show a strong interest for genomics, bioinformatics, cancer research and translational medicine. Priority will be given to applicants with prior experience in NGS, microarrays, R/ Bioconductor and/or UNIX.

Initial funding is available for 2 years, with possible extension for 2 additional years.

Fluency in English is expected. Practical knowledge in French is an asset.

The successful candidates will join an enthusiastic and interdisciplinary team of researchers, oncologists and bioinformaticians that work at the forefront of breast cancer translational research.

How to apply:

Applications including a letter of application, an up-to-date CV and at least two referees should be sent to Prof. Christos Sotiriou (christos.sotiriou@bordet.be) and Dr. Françoise Rothé (francoise.rothe@bordet.be).
