Bioinformatics Specialist - Genomics Platform

The role of the bioinformatics specialists is to ensure daily operations at the Genomics Platform and to support researchers from our centres working on fundamental biological mechanisms - the Novo Nordisk Centres for Protein Research (CPR) and Stem Cell Biology (DanStem) - with expertise in functional genomics and single-cell sequencing data processing and analysis. The advertised job is an exciting opportunity for strong candidates with a background in bioinformatics to establish themselves in the field of genomics services. The genomics platform represents a joint venture that bridges the vibrant scientific environment that spans DanStem and the CPR and is central to scientific activities in both centres.

Background
DanStem addresses fundamental research questions in stem cell and developmental biology and has activities focused on the translation of promising basic research results into new therapeutic strategies for cancer and chronic diseases. DanStem is a vibrant, internationally diverse and ambitious research centre with state-of-the-art facilities. The setting is ideally suited for seamless collaboration and exchange with other centres and departments of the Faculty and Copenhagen science community.

CPR promotes basic and applied research on human proteins of medical relevance. CPR spans broad areas of protein research, ranging from structural and mechanistic understanding of proteins and their cellular functions in chromatin biology and genome maintenance, to development of clinical applications of proteomics and systems biology. The vision of CPR is to combine the power of integrative protein technologies and their application to accelerate understanding of the biological processes underlying health and disease.
