Senior Postdoc in rare disease Genomics. #Bioinformatics #Genetics #Biology @CRGenomica

Más información

The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) is one of the largest Genome Sequencing Centers in Europe. It is integrated with the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), a multidisciplinary research centre focusing on biomedicine, that hosts a total of 30 group leaders, of which ~half hold an ERC grant.

The CNAG-CRG is looking for a senior postdoc to join the Bioinformatics Analysis Unit led by Dr Sergi Beltran. The multi-disciplinary team is composed by 15 members develop tools and analyze NGS data mostly related to human health. Dr Beltran leads the RD-Connect platform development ( and is a partner in Solve-RD (, URD-Cat (, ELIXIR ( and MatchMaker Exchange ( projects.

The candidate will work for RD-Connect and the recently funded Solve-RD project (EU H2020, 2018-2022), which aims to solve large number of rare disorder cases by combined Omics approaches. Main goals for the candidate will be to develop and apply innovative statistical and computational methods for the identification and characterization of genomic factors underlying rare diseases. The applicant should have experience with human genetics and genomics data analysis.

This position is a unique opportunity to contribute to innovative research with a substantial direct translational potential. The candidate is expected to guide students, produce research papers, and interact with the research community. We offer a competitive salary and career progression.

1.Proactive data analysis in a cutting edge project on rare disorders, including workflow design, data mining, annotation, interpretation, reporting and scientific communication.
