We are looking for a Laboratory Technician or Bioanalyst to join the Phenomics Platform team to commence November 1st, 2020 or after agreement.

About us

CBMR is a vibrant international research environment with a focus on interdisciplinary collaboration. Our researchers share a common purpose as they seek to transform the basic understanding of the mechanisms involved in metabolic health and disease, and to accelerate this knowledge toward new prevention and treatment strategies. The Center’s research has resulted in seminal discoveries as to how genes, hormones, and environmental factors influence metabolic health and disease throughout life. You can read more about us here: www.cbmr.ku.dk.

The Phenomics Platform is central to the research activities at CBMR and aims to accelerate Center research projects by making large-scale molecular, clinical and registry data and human biological samples available for research. In the Platform, we manage and analyze longitudinal biomedical data obtained from deeply molecularly and clinically phenotyped human samples. In total, we integrate data from more than 200,000 biological samples and our measurements include information on genetic variation, periodic changes of lifestyle, anthropometrics and biochemical measurements. In addition, thousands of these samples include detailed genetic, transcriptomic, serum metabolomics, and intestinal and saliva microbiome measurements. The Platform is a team of 11 employees and is headed by Associate Professor Niels Grarup. Read more about the platform at https://cbmr.ku.dk/platforms/phenomics/.
