Vacancies at the IBIVU Center
||The IBIVU is a recently founded broad-based centre that is
carried by the Faculty of Sciences (FEW)
and the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences (FALW)
with strong endorsement from the University Board (CvB) and intimate
ties with the VU Medical Centre (VUMC).
Its main missions are carrying out a strong
and internationally competitive research programme in Bioinformatics with an
additional focus on functional genomics and systems biology, and providing an
excellent educational programme at bachelor and master level; the latter including
a two-year international Bioinformatics Master's course.
The Centre is going
through a phase of expansion both in staffing and research projects as a result
of university and grant-based funding.
||In addition to a core research group with a tools-directed focus, the IBIVU is
involved in a number of projects in collaboration with institutes and groups
at the Vrije Universiteit, such as the Institute for Molecular Cell Biology
The Centre for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research
(CNCR), and the Microarray
facilities at the VU Medical Centre. The IBIVU research is embedded in a number
of externally funded bioinformatics research directions, such as (1) the
Dutch national Ecogenomics
project which focuses on genomics-based soil-ecosystems
research, (2) the Dutch national Centre for Medical Systems Biology
(3) the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre's
An international focus is the IBIVU partnership in the EC FP6 Bioinformatics/Systems
Biology related Network of Excellence
The IBIVU therefore seeks to extend its
focus on genome-wide discovery-based bioinformatics research with a clear
systems-based and modelling-directed component.
