We are offering a one-year limited-term position with the potential for extension, available for immediate filling.

Join us and be a part of pioneering research that shapes the future of genetic studies and personalized medicine.

Responsibilities: As a Senior Researcher, you will collaborate on genetic analyses with our international experts involved in the NORDTREAT and TARCID-CHB:IBD projects. Taking on the role of project coordinator for TARCID-CHB: IBD, you will integrate genotypes, registry data, and medical records from 470,000 Danes, including approximately 16,000 patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This undertaking provides a distinctive opportunity to delineate patient diversity and contribute to enhancing IBD patient treatment. Through the identification of phenotypes indicative of e.g. severe disease progression, treatment response, or specific risks, comorbidity, personalized patient care can be optimized. The project is a collaborative effort between hospitals and universities in Denmark, Kiel, and Iceland, with active participation in the International IBD Genetic Consortium. Key components include collaboration with the Copenhagen Hospital Biobank, Danish Blood Donor Study, and TARCID (Targeted treatment of patients with Chronic Inflammatory Diseases). Your role involves project coordination, partnership management, formulation and development of individual sub-studies, initiation, analysis, and communication. The ability to travel is advantageous.

Additionally, you will play a vital role in advancing the research unit by securing funding, providing guidance to junior researchers, and participating in administrative tasks. Your workload will be distributed as follows: 60-80% research, 20-40% mentoring, and 10-20% administration.

Your Qualifications:

  • Motivated to leverage the position for personal career development
  • Demonstrated ability to see tasks through to completion, offer solutions, and collaborate across diverse disciplines
  • Possesses a wide professional network, requiring strong organizational skills, a positive attitude, and effective communication abilities
  • Exhibits creativity, independence, self-motivation, and consistent engagement, maintaining a productive work routine
  • Adaptable, responsible, well-organized, and a collaborative team player
  • Holds a Ph.D. degree with the goal of achieving associate professor qualification within 2-3 years.
  • Relevant master's degree (e.g., M.Sc. in science)
  • Proven experience in epidemiology, registry data management, bioinformatics, article writing, international journal publication, project development from conception to funding, mentoring of thesis and Ph.D. students, and collaboration with research units on both national and international levels

We Offer:

  • A position with significant autonomy and responsibility
  • A challenging daily work environment in a setting where functions are continuously established and developed
  • Diverse and varied collaboration with many different parties
  • Good opportunities for professional development
  • You will become part of a well-established team and department, where new ideas are welcomed, and there is room to discuss challenges

The position is a collaboration between the Clinical Genome Center (CGC), Odense University Hospital, and the research unit Molecular Diagnostics and Clinical Research (MOK), part of Medical Diseases, Hospital Sønderjylland, Aabenraa. You will be employed at MOK but also work at CGC. MOK's research focuses on primarily Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. We emphasize personalized medicine, including lifestyle supporting disease control and implementing relevant measures in the clinic.

Salary and Employment Conditions: According to the collective agreement.

If you are interested in contributing to groundbreaking genetic research and have the skills to excel in a collaborative and dynamic environment, we encourage you to apply.
