Job description :
A position of bioinformatics group leader is open at the Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC). The engineer expert in big genomic data analysis will be in charge of the sequencing facility (PSI2BC). He(she) will conduct the bioinformatics of the sequencing projects (Illumina and Oxford
Nanopore) with a focus on designing and developing innovative computational tools in order to follow the rapid evolution of the sequencing technologies, in particular in the fields of single molecule sequencing (DNA and RNA), of modified base detection, and of single cell sequencing. He(she) will organize the follow up of the sequencing projects in close relationship with users and will orientate the choice of the methods and tools to address the biological questions of interest. He(she) will contribute to a network of knowledge exchange in bioinformatics within the institute and to teaching activities for students and scientists.
The position will start at the end of 2019.
The candidates (PhD or engineer level) should apply on the CNRS website “2ème poste du concoursn°53” (BAP E) :

Description of the facility :
The Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) is an academic research centre (Unité Mixte de Recherche CNRS UMR9198, CEA and Université Paris-Sud) composed of 73 research groups and 14 technology facilities. The institute has strong activity in bioinformatics, computational biology and genomics and has a facility for DNA sequencing and data analysis (PSI2BC) that has a quality label ISO9001 (NFX-50-900) and is open to both academic groups and companies. The sequencing facility has a biology group for sample preparation and sequencing and a bioinformatics group for data analyses. These groups work in coordination with each other and in close association with the users to monitor the follow up of the projects from their design to completion. The facility performs a large diversity of sequencing projects (over 200/year) using Illumina technology as well as Oxford Nanopore technology for direct DNA and RNA sequencing. It has a strong focus on the detection of modified DNA and RNA, and will initiate single cell sequencing.
The I2BC is located in Gif-sur-Yvette (France) in the CNRS campus (Vallée de Chevreuse, Essonne), next to the Université Paris-Saclay (20 km south of Paris) with a direct connection by the RER train (40 mn).

Skills :
• Strong expertise in genomic and NGS data analysis with at least 3-5 years experience
• Mastery of Unix/Linux, R, of several programming languages and knowledge in database administration
• Expertise in high throughput sequencing technologies
• Expertise in molecular biology
• Capacity to elaborate tools for data analysis and synthesis
• Experience in group management (engineers) is a plus
