Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

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 is located at 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.

Your mission

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 largescale 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.

Your profile

Applicants should have a PhD 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
• 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.
Personal suitability is an important criterion.
