Further Information
The overall objective of BioGeMT is to merge the strengths of the University of Malta in Information and Communications Technology, Statistics, and Molecular Genetics and Genomics by setting up a bioinformatics team which will focus primarily on the development and application of methods (including machine learning)
for interpreting combined genomic, transcriptomic, metabolomic and phenotypic data. The position will be within the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Biobanking (CMMB) where the ERA Chair and Team will collaborate with existing genetics and genomics research groups.
The ERA Chair and head of the bioinformatics team will be Panagiotis Alexiou, PhD. The team will be the central point for development of novel bioinformatics methodologies, especially those relevant to the use of machine learning in the analysis of multi-Omics data, as well as standardization and automation of analysis
pipelines for multi-Omic data. Team members will work closely with relevant research groups, besides clinicians and laboratory staff on all stages of the scientific process, from proposals and project design, troubleshooting and primary analysis, up to combinatorial analysis, machine learning analysis, and publication. This interaction is expected to set-up long lasting interdisciplinary collaborations between
different research teams which will lead to innovative research and analysis outcomes resulting in the publication of articles in high impact journals, and clinical applications which are rapidly translated into benefits for patients.
Further information may be obtained by contacting Dr Jean Paul Ebejer at [email protected]. The Research Support Officer may also be required to work on other projects undertaken by the ERA-Chair Team.
The position is for Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Researchers to become part of the BioGeMT ERA Chair team at the University of Malta. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrable background in the field of Bioinformatics, and/or Informatics, Statistics, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Science or similar subjects, with an emphasis on computational approaches to biological data analysis. Expertise in Genomics,
Transcriptomics, and/or Metabolomics data analysis is a strong asset.
