At Department of Molecular Oncology, Institute for Cancer Research, OUH, we have two vacant positions as either postdoctoral fellow or researcher (depending on qualifications). The vacancies are for two years, with possibility for prolongation. The postdoc or researcher will be part of the Genome Biology Group. The group’s projects are directed towards improvement of cancer diagnosis and management by utilization of genome technologies. Particular emphasis is on translational research of prostate cancer.
The work will involve multiple omics technologies, including analysis of data particularly from high-throughput DNA and RNA-sequencing of cancer samples. It will involve database work, machine learning, and scripting, etc., both to develop and establish new analytical flow for genomics using existing software, and it will be needed to develop new ones. The candidate will contribute at all phases of the project, including planning, implementation, discussion of implications of the results, and presentation of the project, orally and manuscript preparation.
The candidate must have a PhD, for example in biology, informatics or medicine. The candidate also must have expertise in cancer genomics, for example documented through publications and/or courses. It is also an advantage if the candidate has experience with bioinformatics for RNA-seq analyses, programming in R, python, scripting in Unix, machine learning, and work in high-performance computation. It is also an advantage, but not required, for the candidate to have experience with wetlab DNA and RNA-work.
