Job: Bioinformatics position in new informatics cluster

Bioinformatics position in the new informatics cluster supporting the Novo Nordisk Foundation Centers for Stem Cell Biology and Protein Research.

The NNF Centers for Protein Research (CPR) and Stem Cell Biology (DanStem) at Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen are establishing a new integrated informatics core that will cover a range of technologies. This new core was recently expanded to include bioinformatics as a result of our establishing a new platform for single cell sequencing. We are currently looking for an ambitious bioinformatician who will assist with NGS analysis with in this core and provide new bioinformatics pipelines to individual scientists with in both centers. The individual will be imbedded in a bioinformatics core with expertise that will include NGS, proteomics, and image data analysis. The bioinformatician will join the centers starting from November 2017 or upon specific agreement.

Job description

The job will sit at the nexus of the two centers and astride several existing joint efforts to bridge computational technologies including image analysis and single cell sequencing. The tasks associated with this position will include providing bioinformatics support to our scientists, constructing pipelines for their analyses, and running courses that will help them acquire bioinformatics literacy. In particular this position will be responsible for developing and executing projects with other center scientists and helping them to make the best use of their own data and that already in the public domain.

The application deadline October 15th, 2017. For further details, please refer to http://employment.ku.dk/staff/?show=145792the official job ad.

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

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++
