Furthermore, you are a social person that would like to be engaged in social activities involving the research group. Preferably you have experience in bacterial genomics, next generation sequencing, and (genome) databases. Female applicants are encouraged to apply for this position.
The Bacterial Genomics group is part of the Center of Molecular and Bio-Molecular Informatics (CMBI) bio-informatics cluster (NCMLS research school of the UMC St Radboud, Nijmegen, the Netherlands). CMBI employs about 50 bio-informatics researchers part of four successful research groups as well as the Netherlands Bio-informatics Centre headquarters. The Bacterial Genomics group (CMBI) is headed by Dr. Van Hijum and focuses on the study of the interaction of micro-organisms within complex microbial communities that impact health.
