The Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MEB) is among the largest departments of epidemiology in Europe with special focus on increasing our knowledge of the aetiology of different diseases. Our department consists of researchers, doctoral students, biostatisticians, data collectors and database administrators as well as administrative personnel, in total some 250 staff. The department is situated at campus Solna. Further information can be found at

The working group consists of a mix of complementary skills in order to quickly and efficiently drive the issues forward. We are a team consisting of a medical oncologist (Professor and Head ), a bioinformatician ( research assistant ) and two research engineers.

Using various laboratory techniques to prepare biological material from cancer patients for analysis. The work also includes development of new methods. In-depth bioinformatics expertise in sequence analysis is an advantage , as this facilitates development . The work also requires the ability to work independently.

Entry requirements
Master of Science degree in relevant discipline (genetics , proteomics , etc.)

Experience in these operations , it is beneficial:

1) DNA/RNA- and protein extraction from tissue. Subsequent quality assurance of automated gel electrophoresis ( Bioanalyzer , Agilent ) and fluorescence -based quantification ( Qubit , Invitrogen). As RNA is susceptible to degradation , we want you as an applicant to have experience of working with RNA in RNAefree conditions.

2 ) Preparation of paired -end sequencing libraries for illumina sequencing . In order to optimally perform and develop protocols around libary dreparation is required detailed knowledge of the properties of the relevant enzyme tex ligases , polymerases , etc.

3) To carry out insolution sequence capture .

4) Running qPCR ( CFX Real-Time PCR System , Biorad) for quality assurance of enriched libraries (see item 3) and for quantification prior to sequencing.

In additional we seek a cooperative, diligent and open-minded person with an interest in working in a research lab .
