Junior engineer bioinformatics / bioinformatician (M/F)

Poste à pourvoir : Dès que possible
Type de contrat : Contrat à durée déterminée 18 mois
Domaine d'activité : Plateforme technologique
Type d'annonce : ICM

The Paris Brain Institute (ICM) is a private foundation recognized as being of public utility, whose purpose is fundamental and clinical research on the nervous system. On the same site, 700 researchers, engineers and doctors cover all the disciplines of neurology, with the aim of accelerating discoveries on the functioning of the brain and the development of treatments for diseases such as: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, depression, paraplegia, tetraplegia, etc.




The Paris Brain Institute is investing in cutting-edge technologies and expertise as part of its transversal approach to the discovery of new treatments for neurological diseases. The Data Analysis Core facility (DAC) mission within this ambitious program is to develop new tools and analyses, coordinate FAIR data governance across the institute, and accompany researchers in exploiting the full potential of the institute’s technology and data ecosystem. The DAC consists of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary team of experts in biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, and data management. We accompany researchers throughout the research cycle, from idea to publication. We perform analyses, develop databases, and offer training in data analysis and good practices in data management. We are currently recruiting new team members to strengthen our expertise in bioinformatics (spatial transcriptomics), image analysis using deep learning (microscopy, histology, and neuroimaging), and research data governance. If you are interested in the brain and want to apply your skills in a stimulating research environment, the DAC could be the place for you.
