Computational biologist, genomics of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases at IMIDomics

IMIDomics is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work in the genomic analysis of Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Diseases (IMIDs). The successful applicant will work in IMIDomics, a rapidly growing spin-off from the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute, that is focused on bringing the power of precision medicine to IMID patients. A fundamental strategy at IMIDomics is to integrate high-quality molecular data from large cohorts of well-characterized patients. The applicant will be involved in the analysis of genomic data generated from these patients, working in a team of bioinformaticians and 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.


  • Processing and analysis of genomic data (e.g. GWAS, WGS, PGS)
  • Integrative analysis of genomic data with our transcriptomic (i.e. eQTL), proteomic (i.e. pQTL) and clinical data as well as with publicly available large-scale datasets
  • Generation of high-quality reports supporting drug target identification, patient stratification, etc.
  • Discussion of reports in scientific meetings

Desired skills and expertise

  • PhD in Computational Biology or closely related areas
  • Experience in analysis of large genomic datasets
  • Strong statistical background for association analysis and model construction
  • Excellent programming skills in R
  • Good communication and presentation skills, with capacity for high-quality visualization
  • Valued assets: knowledge of autoimmunity, immune repertoire, network analysis and statistics applied to Machine Learning
  • Ability to work in a team and pursue goals in a focused way

Work conditions

  • Type: Full time position
  • Starting date: Immediate
  • Deadline: 31st January 2022
  • Salary: commensurate to the candidate’s expertise and qualifications
