The Unit of Animal Genomics (UAG) is an internationally acclaimed research group, headed by Michel Georges, whose ~20 members develop and use state-of-the-art genomic and analytical tools to dissect the molecular basis of complex traits of medical, agricultural and fundamental importance in humans and animals (https://www.gigauag.uliege.be/cms/c_4254739/en/portail-gigauag).
The UAG is part of the GIGA biomedical research institute counting more than 500 scientist that are active in the neurosciences, cancer biology, inflammation-infection-immunity, stem cell biology, medical genomics and bioengineering (www.giga.uliege.be). GIGA is located in the gorgeous Sart-Tilman campus of the University of Liège.
The Unit of Animal Genomics/IBD group seeks to hire highly motivated and enthusiastic Bioinformatics specialist for an IBD related project to join the IBD genomics team and participate in the analysis of data generated for the CEDAR.v2 cohort, i.e. a unique cohort of ~500 individuals that are deeply phenotyped at the metabolome, genome, transcriptome and microbiome level in multiple immune cell types and intestinal locations with the aim to identify variants, genes and pathways underlying inherited predisposition to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (f.i. Huang et al. Nature 2017; Momozawa et al. Nat Commun 2018). This project is EU funded (Horizon2020: http://syscid.eu).
