Metagenomes are complex datasets that contain genomic information from bacteria, viruses, and other microbial organisms. Laboratories around the world are generating tens of thousands of these datasets with high-throughput DNA sequencing machines, providing an unprecedented picture of the microbial world we live in. We are just beginning to understand the many interactions taking place in this global microbiome. In the role of Bioinformatician/Data Steward Metagenomics, you will strengthen the metagenomics research at Utrecht University by developing and maintaining pipelines for downloading and analysing genomic and metagenomic datasets from public repositories. You will play an important role in our team and contribute to answering diverse research questions related to the microbiome, such as predicting bacteriophage-host interactions, identifying growth-stimulating bacteria for agriculture, and understanding the role of bacteria in diseases such as colorectal cancer.
