Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

The Center for Translational Microbiome Research (CTMR) was started in January 2016 as a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet,  Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) and Ferring Pharmaceuticals. The center builds on a deep understanding of translational microbiome research and has established a broad technical, biological, clinical and epidemiological platform for studying complex microbiological communities in well-defined human materials. CTMR aims to better understand the contribution of the human microbiome to physiology and pathophysiology with the goal to open opportunities for development of novel therapies in the area of gastroenterology, reproductive health and neonatology.

We are looking for a research engineer to join the team as information and data manager at The Center for Translational Microbiome Research (CTMR). The position involves work at both Clinical Genomics and CTMR, and requires working with clinicians, geneticists, software developers, and bioinformaticians. We offer an environment that combines highly internationally competitive work in both clinical diagnostics as well as frontline research in the human health field.

The information and data manager position concerns the following main tasks:

  • Develop and manage accessible and secure web interfaces for sample registration
  • Develop and manage LIMS integration for clinical samples
  • Develop and manage SQL and NoSQL database systems to integrate data from several sources
  • Continuous management of research data in a secure, reliable, and dependent way according to relevant laws and regulations concerning research data

Candidates should hold a BSc in engineering or equivalent, and have excellent technical and practical skills working with information and data systems. You are a careful and detail oriented person, not afraid of responsibility or interacting with external collaborators that are experts in a wide variety of fields connected to our research. You have a strong desire to deliver high quality work, and have experience working independently. We put great emphasis on personal suitability.
