Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för Medicinsk biokemi och biofysik, Translational Medicine and Chemical Biology

For our growing interdisciplinary and multi-national team, we are recruiting a research assistant dedicated to epigenomics next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis.

Position
To unravel the molecular circuits that underlie epigenetic gene regulation and inheritance, my laboratory combines chemical and synthetic biology manipulation of living cells with systems-level (genomic and proteomic) readouts. The successful candidate will thus participate in the experimental planning, processing, analysis, integration and publication of quantitative ChIP-Seq data. The successful candidate will work together with expert bioinformaticians and other members of the team. The ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential for this position.

Qualifications
A MSc degree in bioinformatics or related disciplines is required. The successful candidate will have:

  • firm knowledge in R, Unix/Linux, a benefit is C++, Perl, Python
  • experience in the analysis of next-generation sequencing data
  • experience in pipeline development and data management
  • knowledge of relevant biological areas (chromatin and gene expression, genetics and epigenetics)
  • excellent knowledge in biostatistics
  • experience in data genomics data mining and visualization
  • proficiency in written and spoken English

 It is a merit if the applicant can document the following:

  • Experience in working with wet lab scientists
  • Excellent organizational, communication and social skills
  • Excellent presentation skills

The bioinformatician will work closely with the supervisor, Dr. Carmen Navarro, wet lab students and postdocs that generate the data, experienced bioinformaticians from the Wallenberg Bioinformatics Support Program (WABI), the Ming Wai Lau Center Bioinformatics Core.

Applications should include full CV including grades of degrees, motivation letter documenting the bioinformatics experience and stating the reasons for being interested in my lab and need to be accompanied by at least two names and contact information to request reference letter. Alternatively, you may initiate reference letters to be sent directly to references@elsaesserlab.org

Application process
The application is to be submitted on the MyNetwork recruitment system.

At Karolinska Institutet a 6-month trial period is required for all permanent appointments.
