Descriptif du poste

Description :

A Computational Biologist position is available in Alain HOVNANIAN’s laboratory of Genetic skin diseases in collaboration with Mickael MENAGER’s Single-Cell laboratory at the Imagine Institute/INSERM UMR1163 in Paris, France.

The candidate will work on a project aimed at elucidating the pathophysiology of severe monogenic inflammatory skin diseases including Netherton syndrome, Darier disease, Hailey-Hailey disease, Pachyonychia Congenita and Ichthyoses with identified pathogenic variants.

The candidate will analyse transcriptomic data from lesional and non-lesional skin from patients’ samples already generated.

He/she will collaborate with post-doctoral researchers investigating (phospho)proteomic abnormalities and implementing experimental validation of omics data.

Expectations of the current post :

The computational Biologist will be expected to set up and optimize pipelines to analyze single-cell RNA-Seq and spatial transcriptomics libraries (Visium). In collaboration with the bioinformatic platform, s/he will have to analyze the data generated from the sequencing of single-cell libraries…

Profil recherché

Qualifications :

We are looking for a highly motivated computational biologist (PhD/engineer diploma or master’s degree in bioinformatics) with a proven track-record of independent working.
