Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
The department of Cell and Molecular Biology (ICM) is one of the most internationally diverse,scientifically broad, and eminent departments of biomolecular sciences in Europe. The research at ICMis divided into six main areas, covering everything from cell biology to molecular biophysics. You will be employed by ICM and you will at the same time be tied to the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) and Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab).
NBIS is a distributed national research infrastructure with funding from Vetenskapsrådet (the Swedish Research Council), Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation, SciLifeLab and Swedish universities. The purpose of NBIS is to provide bioinformatics support and infrastructure to Life Science researchers. There are over 70 NBIS experts distributed around the country with expertise in DNA, RNA and protein analysis, systems biology, genome analysis, mass spectroscopy proteomics, and metabolomics. NBIS has around 10 systems developers working on the implementing tools for large scale analysis and data management. It is this group of developers that we now are looking to extend. More information about NBIS may be found at https://nbis.se/
SciLifeLab is a national centre for molecular biosciences focusing on health and environmental research. The centre combines leading expertise with advanced knowledge in translational medicine and molecular biosciences. The goal of SciLifeLab also includes building a strong research community around itself through education and collaboration. SciLifeLab is a national resource run by Karolinska Institutet (KI), Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Stockholm University and Uppsala University. SciLifeLab was founded in 2010 and currently has more than 400 employees at the various facilities and about 150 research groups. See http://www.scilifelab.se/ for further information.
We want you to join us in developing the bioinformatics systems of the future within the framework of one of the world's most eminent universities.
With us, you will be working with agile development of software solutions and user interfaces, unique to the area of bioinformatics. The position involves taking responsibility for the whole lifecycle of applications, from initial planning to deployment using automated deployment tools, to the eventual decommissioning or migration at the end.
The applicant shall have a masters degree within the areas of Information Technology, Computer Science, Scientific Computing, or Bioinformatics. You must have knowledge of virtual machines and application containers.
The applicant shall furthermore have
- Good knowledge and documented experience in programming using Python, Haskell, C/Java and Bash (or equivalent Linux-shell)
- A high level of familiarity with Linux systems and the administration of Linux systems.
- Good knowledge and documented experience of structuring, maintaining and extracting information from, large datasets in databases with SQL and ElasticSearch.
- Several years of documented system development experience.
- Knowledge of web programming.
- Being able to express yourselves in English in both writing and speech.
The applicant shall have good interpersonal and communication skills, and be self-motivated. You should be service minded and able to adapt. You should also be quality conscious as well as result oriented. Emphasis will be put on personal suitability.
Since we are a facility integrated within SciLifeLab, we would like the applicant to have pre-existing experience from the field of bioinformatics. General knowledge of Perl is meriting. Previous work experience from system development within Academia, with configuration management and deployment tools and programming for the web, is extra meriting.
