Bioinformatician High-Throughput Sequencing - Norwegian Sequencing Centre
The Norwegian Sequencing Centre is the national high-throughput sequencing technology platform in Norway. We are looking for a bioinformatician to join our staff of wet-lab and computer-lab scientists.
The full text of the advert (in norwegian) can be found on http://tinyurl.com/NSCbioinformatician
Application deadline is end of June.
The key points (in english):
Requirements for the position:
* Programming skills (preferably with a language for which there are well developed bioinformatic libraries: java, python, perl)
* Experience with Unix based operating systems (Linux, OSX) and shell scripting
* Experience with high-throughput sequencing technology and its applications (or at least an interest in the field).
* An understanding of molecular biology. The position is most likely to suit a qualified bioinformatician, but a candidate with a pure computer science background and a strong interest to acquire the necessary biology skills would also be considered.
* Self-starter that is able to work independently
* delivering sequence data to users of the platform
* assisting platform users with a wide variety bioinformatic analyses connected to the applications of high-throughput sequencing
* some system maintenance work
What we offer:
* the position is initially for 2 years but there is a possibility that this may be extended
* the opportunity to work with the latest high-throughput sequencing technologies and applications. The successful candidate will be working on projects using Illumina technology, but the center also has 454 and PacBio sequencing machines and is considering the purchase of other sequencing technologies.
* a dynamic work environment
* an engaged and enthusiastic group of scientists
* a wide variety of projects from fundamental to translational research
* a good social environment
