Group leader position in bioinformatics

The Institute of genetic diseases Imagine at Necker Enfants-Malades Hospital, in Paris, is inviting applications for one group leader position in bioinformatics, computational biology, and/or statistical genetics.

Imagine is an interdisciplinary research center in molecular medicine in the Necker Enfants-Malades University Hospital campus. Imagine has a new home in the heart of the left bank of Paris, and offers cutting-edge research facilities. Imagine has been designated as an “Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire”, and is supported by a Foundation with a focus on genetic diseases, their biology and their life-long outcomes to address unmet basic and clinical research questions. We expect this research to result in the development of new biological concepts, diagnostic tools, and innovative therapeutics. The Institute is currently composed of 350 members in 25 laboratories working on a variety of genetic disorders and systems.
Imagine has excellent core facilities in genomics, bioinformatics, cell imaging, flow cytometry, pathology, and animal housing. The current bioinformatics platform comprises 7 engineers and computer analysts, and additional recruitments are ongoing. The platform has already developed a number of tools to analyze high-throughput genotyping, sequencing, and transcriptomic data.
Imagine is now committed to further develop this domain of expertise by attracting one new research group with outstanding track record in the development, implementation, and application of innovative methods to analyze high dimensional data. This research group will closely interact with the Imagine laboratories and will have privileged access to a wide range of unique data. Applications can focus on any field related to bioinformatics, computational biology and/or statistical genetics, with a special emphasis on those that may offer strong opportunities of synergy with the present Imagine laboratories. Applications can be proposed at the level of either junior or senior group leader.
Applications should be submitted to Alain Fischer at the address below and must include:

- Complete CV including list of publications
- Past and current research interest (2 pages)
- Future research proposals (5 pages)
- At least three letters of recommendation
Address: (
Applications should be received by June 15th 2015 at the latest.
