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 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.
The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology is one of the most international, broad and sucessful biomolecular departments in Europe covering seven reserach programs in areas such as bioinformatics, microbiology and biophysics.
Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab, www.scilifelab.se) in Sweden serves as a national infrastructure to support advanced high-throughput life science research. SciLifeLab is based in Stockholm/Uppsala, but also has satellite nodes at other universities across Sweden. The National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden at SciLifeLab (www.nbis.se) is a large national infrastructure in rapid development providing support, tools and training to the Swedish life science research community. We are now looking for a new member to join the Bioinformatics Long-term Support team (a.k.a WABI).
The Bioinformatics Long-term Support team provides advanced bioinformatics analyses to some of the most scientifically exciting projects across Sweden. Launched in the beginning of 2013, the team currently comprises more than 20 full-time senior bioinformaticians, and constitutes one of the strongest units for analysis of large-scale genomics and integrative omics data in Sweden. Examples of supported scientific areas range from translational medicine and complex diseases, to evolutionary and environmental research. We are now looking for a new team member to focus on development and implementation of tools and resources focusing on human whole genome sequencing.
You will develop, test and apply bioinformatics tools to analyse data from human whole genome sequencing (WGS). The work will be conducted in collaboration with other bioinformaticians at NBIS/SciLifeLab, and in close interaction with a number of research projects with support from the Bioinformatics Long-term Support team, primarily with a focus on projects within cancer genomics, but also other projects with access to WGS data. You will also help to implement and test other tools under development at NBIS/SciLifeLab, and participate in teaching at national workshops.
The successful candidate should have a PhD or similar relevant working experience from advanced studies within bioinformatics, either within academia or industry, fluent oral and written communication skills in English, and strong skills in cooperation and communication.
Merits We are looking for candidates experienced in providing advanced analyses on data from human whole genome sequencing. Strong skills in workflow and software development are also beneficial.
Your application should include:
- a CV including your publication list
- a personal letter with your motivation to join the team
- contact information to two references
