Bioinformatics skills are indispensable in today's life science projects. SIB supports the Swiss Universities and University hospitals not only through its bioinformatics core resources, but also by embedding bioinformaticians in the various research labs.

There are more and more bioinformaticians physically collocated with researchers in wet labs: so-called “embedded bioinformaticians”. Their presence in the research groups is a real advantage, as they can provide direct guidance on how to design experiments, how to manage and analyse data, and the optimized use of the various bioinformatics tools.

The embedded bioinformaticians can take advantage of the SIB expert network, which they can consult continuously to benefit from state-of-the-art expertise and support in the field.

Apply here to become an SIB embedded bioinformatician.
