With its research programme “Health” VITO strives to support the societal transitions to a more preventative health system. Aiming at translating health-related research even better into solutions for the medical world and policy, we would like to further enhance our expertise in molecular research by innovating in the field of data science, analytics and biomarker research. In order to achieve this, we are looking for a new colleague with omics data science expertise to strengthen our team.
As an R&D professional, you will work closely with the team on data science projects, focussing on omics data. You will be responsible for the systems biology approach by developing and using data science and bioinformatics algorithms, beyond the state of the art. Integration of classical bioinformatics techniques with machine learning and 'big data' techniques is one of the challenges.
You have a PhD in bio-informatics, or similar.
