The VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology (PSB) is a world-leading plant science institute with the mission to integrate genetics, genomics, phenotyping and bio-computing to unravel the biology of plants and to further explore the potential of plants to build a sustainable world. The bioinformatics research groups at PSB develop novel software and web tools for the integration of large-scale data sets in the area of genomics, transcriptomics and phenomics for which an extensive computational infrastructure is available on site. PSB coordinates the Belgian ELIXIR Node, more information on https://www.elixir-belgium.org.
In order to further enhance the features, usability and integration in the ELIXIR network of our in-house developed software platform on plant phenotyping, PSB is looking for a Data Scientist. The post holder will be responsibe for developing tool chains for the validation of plant phenotyping data, assisting with the implementation of the plant breeding API (BrAPI) within the PSB plant phenotyping environment, and will be involved in the development of data management systems, with a focus on enabling integrative analyses.
