ELIXIR Belgium is hiring a Data Science Cloud Coordinator

Data Science Cloud Coordinator

The increase in data intensive analyses requires a data science cloud for research and development. This data science cloud should provide solutions for all aspects related to data: storage, management, security, analysis, integration, sharing, etc. and should be firmly embedded in and outreaching to the international context. To advance the establishment of such an infrastructure, we are hiring a Data Science Cloud Coordinator.

ELIXIR is a European research infrastructure which unites life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by research. It coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources from the different member states and enables users to access services that are vital for their research.

VIB is a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium and is the lead institute of the Belgian ELIXIR node. With more than 1470 scientists from over 60 countries, VIB performs basic research into the molecular foundations of life. VIB is an excellence-based entrepreneurial institute that focuses on translating basic scientific results into pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial applications. VIB works in close partnership with five universities − UGent, KU Leuven, University of Antwerp, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Hasselt University and is funded by the Flemish government.

The VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology (PSB) coordinates the ELIXIR Belgium node. PSB is a world-leading plant science institute with the mission to integrate genetics, genomics and bio-computing to unravel the biology of plants and to further explore the potential of plants to build a sustainable world.
