Job beskrivelse

The Department of Genomic Medicine at Rigshospitalet is looking for a bioinformatician or computational scientist to join our bioinformatics group with a start date of November 1st or thereafter. The bioinformatics group develops, maintains, and operates advanced computational pipelines for the analyses of patient genomes and transcriptomes.

The Department for Genomic Medicine holds a combined high-throughput DNA/RNA sequencing and bioinformatics platform, that offers a wide-range of genomic and transcriptomic analyses, including human whole-genome sequencing, to hospitals in Region Hovedstaden and Region Sjælland. As part of the National Genome Center, we further participate and contribute with sequencing, bioinformatics, and quality assessment for the national genome sequencing initiative.

As part of the bioinformatics group, you will be responsible for developing and maintaining computational pipelines for the support of diagnosis of patients at clinical departments. Accordingly, responsibilities will range from development of workflows and data infrastructure, daily surveillance of automated data analysis workflows and to contributing to publications within the field of clinical bioinformatics. The position will involve development, operations, performance testing and working with large data.

We offer a stimulating environment where medical doctors, biologists, and bioinformaticians work together to deliver high-quality precision medicine and research. Moreover, there will be a unique opportunity to work with bioinformatics and computing tools on real clinical data. Our work has direct implications for diagnosis of patient diagnosis, leading to better treatment for a variety of both rare and common genetic diseases, infections, and cancer. We are a highly integrated team of almost 20 bioinformaticians and our deliverables are all team efforts.

Our work is primarily focused on processing and analysis of DNA sequencing data. We use SnakeMake for the orchestration of a large variety of bioinformatics tools on a supercomputing infrastructure. Previous experience with this, or comparable work, or aspects thereof, is an advantage, and the same goes for understanding of molecular biology.

  • A degree in bioinformatics, computer science and biology, biotechnology, software engineering, biological data science, or equivalent.
  • Proficiency in general in scripting and programming languages, including working knowledge of Python.
  • Proficiency with Linux-based operating systems and shell scripting.
  • Experience with version control using Git.
  • Fluency in English, both written and spoken.
  • Proven experience with working with sequencing data is a plus.
  • PhD in bioinformatics, genomics, or clinical data science is a plus
  • You like to work in a team and are motivated by working in an interdisciplinary environment.

The application should comprise the following, to be uploaded in the application system:

  1. A very brief introductory letter outlining how you see yourself as part of the bioinformatics group
  2. A curriculum vitae and a full publication list
  3. A short description of past and present research activities or contributions to other larger bioinformatics projects
  4. Relevant diplomas

Application deadline is October 13th, 2023. Interviews will be conducted in the second half of October. The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with relevant union. The place of work is Rigshospitalet, Blegdamsvej 9, 2100 Copenhagen.
