Postdoctoral fellowship in Epigenomics/Bioinformatics - Sweden  

Sci Life Lab (company)


Posted on : 13 May 2017

Project Description

  • 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. 
  • We are applying state-of-the-art technologies for genome-wide chromatin profiling and develop novel methodologies based on synthetic and chemical biology.

  • The successful candidate will participate in the experimental planning, processing, analysis, integration and publication of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data including quantitative ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, TT-Seq, chromosome interactome data and proteomics. 
  • The tasks will include statistical analysis, meta-analysis and data modeling. 
  • The successful candidate will work together with other members of the team and with collaborators. 
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential for this position.


Your skills
Required skills of the successful candidate are:
  • firm knowledge in R, Unix/Linux, Perl, Python 
  • extensive 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) 
  • experience in stochastic modeling using MatLab, Mathematica or related programming languages is an advantage 
  • excellent knowledge in biostatistics 
  • experience in data genomics data mining and visualization 

It is a merit if the applicant can document the following:
  • Experience in other computational biology applications such as mathematical modelling, protein bioinformatics or proteomics analysis is a plus 
  • Good understanding of biological concepts and/or willingness to learn.   Experience in working with wet lab scientists is a plus 
  • Good organizational, communication and social skills 
  • Good publication track record 
  • Good presentation skills 

Practical information about the position
  • Start date: As soon as possible
  • 2-year fellowship position depending on eligibility, possible extension as postdoctoral researcher or staff scientist
