Established in 2007 at the University of Liège, GIGA is an interdisciplinary research center in biomedical sciences whose mission is advanced medical innovation. The institute encompasses more than 500 members (PI, senior researchers, post-doctoral scientists, thesis students, technicians) with expertise in medical genomics, in silico medicine, neuroscience, oncology, infection and immunity, and cardiovascular sciences. GIGA provides its members access to a broad range of state-of-the-art technologies through core facilities, including the genomics platform (http://www.giga.uliege.be/). The center offers an extraordinary range of services on the same site, where researchers, clinical doctors, doctoral students, students and private sector actors meet.
GIGA is the only Belgian research center directly integrated within a university hospital, making it a major player in translational research where links between researchers and doctors are at the heart of the research activity.
The GIGA Genomics platform is seeking to hire an enthusiastic bioinformatician/computational biologist to provide expert support for the analysis of single cell RNA sequencing data and other types of complex NGS data. The successful candidate will join the team headed by W. Coppieters and will work closely with scientists from the GIGA Institute.
