Job Description:

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a world leader in scientific research and at the forefront in the development of cutting-edge technologies. In particular, exciting single cell genomic methods are revolutionising biological research. The field is advancing at a very rapid and exciting pace to measure multiple parameters from the same single cell (multi-omics) and to study cells in their native in-situ context (spatial-omics).   The GenTechDev team, together with John Marioni, Oliver Stegle and Anna Kreshuk are looking for a highly motivated computational scientist who loves to implement and develop computational solutions, and would like to expand their skills and knowledge regarding spatial-omics and image data analysis and visualization within a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge environment. The successful candidate will join a dynamic team dedicated to developing widely accessible methods in single cell spatial-omics.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a new team at the cutting edge of spatial-omics technology development in a very exciting area at a world leading institute. EMBL is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to an international research organisation with a very collegial and family friendly working environment. The remuneration package comprises a competitive salary, a comprehensive pension scheme, medical, educational and other social benefits.

We are Europe’s flagship research laboratory for the life sciences – an intergovernmental organisation performing scientific research in disciplines including molecular biology, physics, chemistry and computer science. We are an international, innovative and interdisciplinary laboratory with more than 1600 employees from many nations, operating across six sites, in Heidelberg (HQ), Barcelona, Hinxton near Cambridge, Hamburg, Grenoble and Rome. Our mission is to offer vital services in training scientists, students and visitors at all levels; to develop new technologies and instruments in the life sciences, actively engage in technology transfer activities, and to integrate European life science research. Interviews are planned to take place by video conference on March 2nd (Tuesday) 1-5pm CET. Please note that appointments on fixed term contracts can be renewed, depending on circumstances at the time of the review. Please apply online through:
