A friend of mine asked me to distribute this. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything bioinformatics related, but if you’re looking for a bioinformatics post doc position in a beautiful location, this one sounds pretty good. Yes, I used my danish keyboard to obfuscate the email address… shouldn’t be too hard to figure out, for those who aspire to be post docs. (-;

Projects available in the bioinformatics/genomics group, include but are not limited to (1) Integrative analysis with next-generation sequence etc. to decipher the regulatory role of microRNAs genome-wide. (2) microRNA biomarker discovery in various cancers using next-generation sequence data, microarray data, and survival data etc. (3) GWAS study of DNA methylation given different nutritional statuses. (4) Characterization and comparative genomics of long-intergenic non-coding RNAs with next-generation sequencing data etc. (5) developing sensitive structural variation detection algorithm(s) in targeted deep sequencing technology applied to cancer samples.
- PhD degree in bioinformatics, bioengineering, biostatistics, (bio)physics, electrical engineering, or computer science.
- Strong independent research capabilities with high profile, first-author publications
- Experience with high-throughput data processing using next generation sequencing, microarray etc.
- Proficient with Linux/Unix environment
- Advanced experience in two or more programming languages: perl, R, matlab, C, C++, Java
- Familiar with machine learning and data mining methods
