The Euro-BioImaging Bio-Hub hosted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is seeking for a highly motivated data science professional to coordinate image data services of the newly established European research infrastructure Euro-BioImaging ERIC (www.eurobioimaging.eu). In October 2019, the European Commission has officially established Euro-BioImaging – which provides life scientists with open access to a broad range of technologies and resources in biological and biomedical imaging – as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). Establishment of the Euro-BioImaging ERIC builds on over 10 years of preparatory work with active engagement of 25 national imaging communities, funded by the European Commission and coordinated by EMBL. From the beginning, Euro-BioImaging will build and offer image data services to the research community. The Euro-BioImaging Nodes support their users in data management and quality control. This includes image acquisition for user projects; data management, quality control, primary analysis and transfer to home base as well as advice to fulfil user’s data management plan (according to FAIR principles: https://www.go-fair.org/fair-principles/). The Euro-BioImaging Hub provides services for image data archiving and in the future plans to provide added-value data and knowledge bases for different domains of image data, as well as computational tools for image analysis and processing that can be used via the cloud. The provision of such powerful image data services for the community is of importance not only for the users of the infrastructure but for the life and computational science communities at large. In line with this mission, EMBL, as the host of Euro-BioImaging’s data services has recently launched the BioImage Archive as a new image data resource for the global scientific community.

The Alliance of Genome Resources (AGR) is a major initiative to develop tools and services that facilitate the use of model organism genomes for the understanding human biology, health and disease. Data and tools are made available via an integrated portal (www.alliancegenome.org), as well as a collection of specialist knowledge bases focused on individual species and communities. These include WormBase (www.wormbase.org), which focusses on a nematode worm - Caenorhabditis elegans - that has played a key role in our understanding of development and aging, and was the first animal to have its genome completely sequenced.You will join a team that acts as the bioinformatics hub for WormBase and AGR, analysing and integrating genomic data for C. elegans and other model organisms. The team constantly strives to provide the user community with the most comprehensive and cutting-edge genomic information and tools. Our recent work has included analysis and integration of nanopore transcriptome data for genome annotation, cloud deployment of community genome annotation tools, and standardised analysis and annotation of genomic variation data across model organisms.The team is part of a cluster of teams and resources at EMBL-EBI that includes Ensembl (www.ensembl.org), with a culture of collaborative development and shared code, pipelines and processes. Furthermore, AGR is a large consortium of scientists and developers spread across more than ten institutions in Europe and North America. This an outstanding opportunity to work on a dynamic and high-impact international project.

The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is seeking a Project Lead to join the European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) to provide project coordination for a collaboration between the UK Biobank and the EGA to archive and distribute 500,000 whole-genomes and 500,000 exomes.UK Biobank is a major national health resource with the aim of improving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of serious and life-threatening illnesses - including cancer, heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, eye disorders, depression and forms of dementia. UK Biobank recruited 500,000 people aged between 40-69 years in 2006-10 from across the UK. They have undergone measures, provided blood, urine and saliva samples for future analysis, given detailed information about themselves and agreed to have their health followed. Over the next few years, all of the participants will have their genome sequenced and the genetic and phenotype data will be made available for approved researchers.The EGA is a resource for permanent secure archiving and sharing of all types of potentially identifiable genetic and phenotypic data resulting from biomedical research projects. Its aim is to provide access to data, to foster data re-use, to enable reproducibility and to speed up biomedical and translational research in line with the ‘FAIR’ (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) principles. The EGA project is part of the ENA/EGA/EVA Archive Infrastructure team led by Thomas Keane, this is part of the Molecular Archives Cluster at EMBL-EBI.As Project Lead, you will have a central role in coordinating the EGA-UK Biobank collaboration deliverables by interacting with multiple groups including the EGA team (Software Developers, DevOps, Helpdesk), EBI Technology and Science Integration Cluster, and UK Biobank to ensure successful delivery of the project goals. You will have line management responsibilities for up to three staff members (Bioinformaticians, and Development Operations). This position is an exciting opportunity to become involved in a project that has the potential to be truly transformative for human genetics. Initial appointment will be for two years with potential for extension based on successful delivery of the service and external funding continuity.

EMBL is offering a half-time position as Support Technician in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit in its main laboratory in Heidelberg. The position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jan Ellenberg where the aim of research is to deepen the systems understanding of cell division and nuclear organization. To this end, fluorescently tagged cell division and chromosome proteins are assayed in live mammalian cells and early mouse embryos. 4D confocal and light sheet microscopy is used to directly observe structural dynamics while FRAP and FCS methods serve to analyze binding interactions, concentration and diffusion of proteins. Because of the complexity of kinetics and geometry in live cells, computational methods are used to extract biophysical parameters and build mechanistic models.

We will extend existing ontology design patterns and use them to formally define trait terms used in GWAS annotation. This will have potential applications in identification of drug targets, variant prioritization in the clinic and hypothesis generation in medical research.
