Research Assistant, Human Palaeogenomics

The Section for Evolutionary Genomics is looking for a skilled research assistant to fill a 3-year position, as part of a recently funded project that will investigate the population genomic history of Northern Europe. This project is a collaboration with multiple international partners, and is funded by the Carlsberg Foundation. The overall aim of the grant is to generate full genomic data from skeletal materials that span the last 1000 years from multiple European locations, for use in analyses to look at how the populations at these sites have changed through time, and what pathogen challenges they faced. This research assistant position will in particular be charged with extracting DNA from skeletal material, conversion of this DNA into NGS libraries for deep sequencing, sampling skeletal elements and maintaining a well-organized database of the samples and results. It is likely the candidate may be required to travel to visit other partners for certain periods to assist them in their data generation. Thus, we are looking to hire a research assistant who has prior relevant experience, and who is dedicated to the generation of high-quality data. The position would be co-supervised by Prof Tom Gilbert, Asst. Professor Ashot Margaryan, and Dr. Åshild Vågene (Section for Evolutionary Genomics, Dept Biology).



Main Tasks

  • Subsample skeletal material for subsequent DNA extraction
  • Organise samples into a sample database
  • Extract DNA from the samples, following standard palaeogenomic protocols
  • Generate shotgun sequencing libraries and data from the samples
  • Implementation of roboticised pipelines for DNA extraction and library construction


Mandatory Qualifications

  • Relevant scientific background – at least MSc level in a topic related to Biology and/or Genetics.
  • Prior experience in the extraction of nucleic acids from ancient skeletal materials
  • Prior experience in the generation of NGS data from ancient skeletal materials
  • Highly organized, and able to work both as part of a team but also under their own initiative.
  • Excellent teamwork and communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Fluency in English (written, reading, spoken)


Other Qualifications of Considerable Interest

  • Knowledge of the principles of palaeogenomic data generation.


Further information on the Department is linked at http://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation/. Inquiries about the position can be made to Prof Tom Gilbert (tgilbert@snm.ku.dk )



The position is open from 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.



The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.



Terms of employment

The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff. Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State. The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 349,819 including annual supplement (+ 17.1 % pension). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.



The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.



Please include

  • Curriculum vita, including clear documentation of above listed mandatory skills requirement.
  • Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)
  • Complete publication list


The deadline for applications is Sunday 16 June 2019, 23:59 GMT +2.



After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee.
