The Functional Genomics Center Zurich (FGCZ) is a joint core facility of the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich that applies the latest omics technologies for biomolecular research and personalized medicine. The FGCZ Genome Informatics group supports researchers with the analysis and interpretation of large-scale datasets, in particular next generation sequencing (NGS) data. The team covers raw data processing, high-performance computing, statistical evaluation, interpretation, and integrated analysis. The team runs an excellent open source based software environment and establishes state-of-the-art data analysis concepts and algorithms.
You will extend the existing team and closely collaborate with researchers at ETH Zurich and University of Zurich. The main responsibilities will be the reproducible analysis, visualisation and interpretation of multi-omics datasets with a focus on single-cell sequencing and spatial transcriptomics. You will use and extend existing analysis workflows. Additionally, you will advise researchers of ETH Zurich and University of Zurich on experimental design and data analysis strategies.
