Karolinska Institutet

Vid Institutionen för molekylär medicin och kirurgi (MMK) bedriver vi preklinisk och klinisk forskning inom ett stort antal områden. Till institutionen hör ca 450 forskare, forskarstuderande, lärare samt teknisk och administrativ personal och för närvarande har vi ca 150 doktorander. Institutionen bedriver grundutbildning inom både läkarprogrammet, sjukgymnastprogrammet, biomedicinprogrammet och biomedicinska analytikerprogrammet.

Avdelning
The bioinformatician position is placed in prof Richard Rosenquist Brandell’s research group at MMK. The research is focused on applying next-generation sequencing technologies to explore key molecular events in hematological malignancies. The group moved to a brand new location in January 2018, BioClinicum, and includes PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and bioinformaticians. The group works closely with Clinical Genetics at Karolinska University Hospital and Science for Life Laboratory.

Arbetsuppgifter
The research projects focus on analysing the importance of genetics/epigenetics for development of hematological malignancies, with the ultimate aim to further characterize specific subgroups of the diseases in order to map important genetic/epigenetic events that contribute to the disease pathogenesis, and affect the prognosis for the individual patient. The project will focus on analysis of small- and large-scale next-generation sequencing data as well as implementing and testing of new techniques.

We aim to recruit an independent and motivated person who can set up and maintain workflows by implementing and adapting existing tools for next-generation sequencing analysis. The appointed person will be expected to work with molecular biologists, physicians and bioinformaticians, as well as to actively participate in national and international collaborative research Projects.

Kvalifikationer
Applicants are required to have completed a Master’s degree or higher in a field related to the position, such as bioinformatics, biotechnology, engineering physics, biomedicine or similar.  Further requirements are:

  • Documented experience in analysis of next-generation sequencing data in human disease.
  • Documented experience in programming and data analysis in R.
  • Programming skills in Python, R, Java or Perl, as well as scientific computing in Linux Pased HPC environments.
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to work both independently and in collaboration with colleagues in very diverse fields, and the ability to document work.

A scientific background is a strong merit. Personal suitability is an important criterion.

The employment is a fixed-term position for two years.
