Default Two bioinformaticians wanted for clinical sequencing facility in Uppsala, Sweden

The Clinical Sequencing Facility is a new SciLifeLab national facility, organized jointly by Uppsala University, Uppsala University Hospital and Science for Life Laboratory. Our mission is to provide clinical genetic tests for various cancer forms and inherited diseases using state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing technology. With our team of facility associated geneticists and medical doctors, we will deliver clinical assessments of the detected variants, with the aim to truly provide “bench to bedside” services.

We are now looking for two bioinformaticians to our facility: one person to drive development of production systems and data management, one to drive development of data analysis pipelines. Those appointed will be expected to work with clinicians, geneticists, software developers, bioinformaticians and molecular biologists from our facility, and collaboratively also at other similar facilities or research teams in Sweden and abroad.

The positions and qualifications are described below. Please see http://www.uu.se/en/jobs/jobs-detail...sitionId=30160 and http://www.uu.se/en/jobs/jobs-detail...sitionId=30157 for more information and for application forms.

Application deadline is January 31, 2014. Both jobs are full time, two years to start with and may be extended depending on funding and progress.

Bioinformatician (data management)

Work description: To establish the computational infrastructure for our facility, we are looking to recruit a highly motivated bioinformatician/software engineer who can drive the development of the production workflow of our facility. This will include developing server applications, databases and user interfaces for clinical- and genetic data management, as well as data transfer protocols for the analysis pipelines in our high performance computing cluster. One particularly important aspect of the production system will be the handling of data integrity and security.

Qualifications: Applicants are required to have a M.Sc. degree or higher in a field related to the position, such as bioinformatics, computer science, engineering or similar. Further requirements are:

- Documented experience in database design, programming, and maintenance.

- Documented programming skills in Java, C/C++, Python or Perl.

- Documented experience with Linux systems, including server administration and security.

- Good communication skills and the ability to work both independently and in collaboration with colleagues in very diverse fields, and the ability to document work.

- Fluency in English.

Desirable and meritorious in other respects: Experience with bioinformatics in general, and next-generation sequencing data in particular, is strongly meriting but not required. Also meriting but not required are knowledge (or an interest in) genetics, medicine or biology in general, knowledge in computer hardware, R programming and statistics. Applicants need to have strong work ethics and an understanding of privacy and security aspects concerning clinical and genetic data. Ability in Swedish is meriting. A high degree of importance will be given personal suitability for the position.

Bioinformatician (data analysis)

Work description: To establish the computational infrastructure for our facility, we are looking to recruit a highly motivated bioinformatician/scientific programmer who can drive the development of the data analysis workflow of our facility. This will include building analysis pipelines based on developing new, and implementing and adapting existing software tools for next generation sequence data analysis, as well as workflow management tools. The work will also involve development of bioinformatics content and annotation for facility databases, in particular concerning clinically relevant genetic variation data.

Qualifications: Applicants are required to have completed a Ph.D. degree or higher in a field related to the position, such as bioinformatics, biotechnology, engineering physics or similar. Further requirements are:

-Documented experience in analysis of next-generation sequencing data.

-Documented experience in bioinformatics. Particularly important are knowledge in genomics, transcriptomics, genome annotation and a good knowledge of public resources for bioinformatics data and annotation.

-Documented programming skills in Java, C/C++, Python or Perl, in particular concerning scientific computing in Linux based HPC environments.

-Documented knowledge in statistics, and programming skills in R.

-Good communication skills and the ability to work both independently and in collaboration with colleagues in very diverse fields, and the ability to document work.

-Experience in publishing and presenting research results.

-Fluency in English.

Desirable and meritorious in other respects: Knowledge (or an interest in) genetics, medicine or biology in general is meriting. Applicants need to have strong work ethics and an understanding of privacy and security aspects concerning clinical and genetic data. Ability in Swedish is meriting. A high degree of importance will be given personal suitability for the position.
