Bioinformatics Scientist, multi-omics of autoimmune diseases at the Rheumatology Research Group

Date limit
Vall d'Hebron Institute of Research (VHIR)


The Rheumatology Research Group (Grup de Recerca en Reumatologia, GRR) at VHIR seeks to fill one full-time position:

Postdoctoral Bioinformatics at GRR-VHIR

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work in the multi-omic analysis of autoimmunity. The successful applicant will work in collaboration with a spin-off company from the GRR, IMIDomics, focused on bringing precision health to autoimmune diseases (AD). IMIDomics is a leading company in the generation and analysis of high-quality molecular data from patients with AD. The approach is highly multi-omic combining data from multiple levels including genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomic, proteomic and single cell sequencing levels. The applicant will be responsible for the analysis of a nation-wide longitudinal cohort of patients affected from skin autoimmunity. The postdoc will work in close collaboration both with expert genomic scientists as well as medical researchers. We provide a highly stimulating environment with the use of state-of-the art technologies and unique career development.


  • QC and curation of molecular and clinical phenotype data.
  • Development of a processing and analysis pipeline for multi-level biological data (i.e. RNA-seq, GWAS, epigenomics, single cell RNA-seq).
  • Statistical association analysis and model construction.
  • Identification of new drug targets.
  • Generation of results reports.


Desired skills and expertise

  • PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Systems Biology or closely related areas.
  • Experience in analysis of next-generation sequencing data sets. Experience on single-cell RNA-seq data would be a good asset.
  • Excellent programming skills. Fluency in R.


Applications including all relevant credentials should be sent to: GRR-VHIR Human Resources e-mail: The vacancy will remain open until suitable candidate has been hired. Applications will be regularly reviewed and potential candidates will be contacted.
