Announcement: Microbiome data interpretation workshop

Microbiome_workshop

Manimozhiyan Arumugam from the NNF Center for Basic Metabolic Research and I will be organizing a hands-on workshop on microbiome data interpretation in Copenhagen on October 25-26, 2017.

Together with Luis Pedro Coelho from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and Evangelos Pafilis from the Hellenic Center for Marine Research, we will cover text mining and other useful methods for interpreting microbiome data in the context of the literature.

To apply, register here before August 1, 2017.

Job: Data mining of health record data

A postdoc position is available in the Cellular Network Biology group at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR). The group focuses on network-based analysis of proteins and their posttranslational modifications in the context of cellular signaling and disease. The postdoc will work on analysis of data from electronic health records combined with molecular-level data in the context of alcoholic liver fibrosis and be part of the GALAXY consortium.

Candidates for the postdoctoral positions must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) within a relevant discipline and have experience with programming and large-scale data analysis. The successful candidates will have strong qualifications or experience within several of the following areas:

  • Bioinformatics / computational biology
  • Experience with medical data
  • Statistical data analysis
  • Programming in Python and/or R

Update: The BuzzCloud for 2016

A new year has begun, so it is time for an update of the BuzzCloud.

buzzcloud2016

Comparing it to the cloud from 2015 year, it is clear that not much has happened in terms of new scientific buzzwords. However, readers of this blog will likely be pleased to see that the terms “data analytics”, “data science”, “data technology”, and not least “citizen science” and “open science” are all trending.

Job: Postdoc position on computational proteomics

A postdoc position is available in the Cellular Network Biology group at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR). The group focuses on network-based analysis of proteins and their posttranslational modifications in the context of cellular signaling and disease. The postdoc will work on developing novel computational methods for analysis of proteomics data and apply them to unpublished state-of-the-art mass-spectrometry data in close collaboration with the proteomics groups at CPR.

Candidates for the postdoctoral positions must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) within a relevant discipline and have experience with programming and large-scale data analysis. The successful candidates will have strong qualifications or experience within several of the following areas:

  • Bioinformatics / computational biology
  • Statistical data analysis
  • Mass spectrometry / proteomics
  • Programming in Python and/or R

Job: Postdoc position on biomedical text mining

A postdoc position is available in the Cellular Network Biology group at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR). The group focuses on network-based analysis of proteins and their posttranslational modifications in the context of cellular signaling and disease. The postdoc will work on development of advanced methods for protein-centric text mining of large corpora, including combining efficient dictionary-based named entity-recognition with conditional random fields and classification based on word embedding. The resulting improved methods will in collaboration with other group members be integrated into STRING and related databases/tools, and the software will be made available under open licenses.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) within a relevant discipline and have strong programming experience. The successful candidates will have strong qualifications or experience within several of the following areas:

  • Text mining
  • Bioinformatics / computational biology
  • Machine learning
  • Statistical data mining
  • Biomedical ontologies
  • Programming in Python and/or C++
