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 The postdoc will work on developing novel computational methods for analysis of proteomics data and apply them to unpublished state-of-the-art mass-spectrometry data in close collaboration with the proteomics groups at CPR.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++

Job: Ph.D. stipend in systems biology and bioinformatics

I currently have an open position for a Ph.D. student in my group Cellular Network Biology. My group is part part of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) and is financially supported by the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

The project will primarily focus on developing new, improved methodologies for analysis of large-scale datasets, e.g. from mass spectrometry, in the context of protein interaction networks, protein localization, and expression. In doing so, the aim is both to test scientific hypotheses and to improve existing resources developed within the group, such as STRING and COMPARTMENTS. Candidates are thus expected to have experience with programming and statistics.

The closing date for applications is June 30, 2014. For further details refer to the job advert.
