Om jobbet

The School of Medical Sciences is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in Statistical Bioinformatics, with application in biomedicine and psychology, for a fixed-term appointment (2 years).

Subject area

The position is in Medical Sciences, with special focus on Statistical Bioinformatics.

Background

For more information see the full advertisement at our career site. 

Duties and responsibilities

The appointment as a postdoctoral researcher is intended to enable persons who have recently been awarded their doctoral degree, to consolidate and develop primarily their research/artistic skills.

The applicant will be responsible for developing and investigating statistical bioinformatics models based on experimental data available within the various collaborating research environments relevant for a variety of mechanisms in inflammation research as well as factors associated with a variety of pain phenotypes. The applicant will engage in tight discussions for hypothesis development, model specification and adaptation, as well as generation of model predictions, in close collaboration with experimentally working biomedical researchers and clinicians. 

Eligibility

Eligible for the appointment as postdoctoral researcher are applicants holding a doctoral degree in (bio)physics, computer science, applied statistics, or in related subject areas, with close relation to medical or life sciences and experience in application and development of machine learning algorithms. The doctoral degree should have been awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline. Candidates who have obtained their doctoral degree prior to that may however also be considered if special grounds exist (leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, clinical duties, an elected position in a trade union, or other similar circumstances

Assessment criteria

General assessment criteria include excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to cooperate as well as the ability and suitability otherwise required to perform the duties well. Particular importance shall be attached to the qualities enabling the candidate to contribute to the future development of both research and education. A demonstrated ability and desire to pursue an academic career is also of importance.

In addition, experience of statistical modelling and data analysis is crucial, preferably with application within the (bio)medical sciences.  Previous research within mixed model analysis in the life sciences is preferred. Since the project will be conducted in close collaborations with other professions and non-academic partners, a cooperative mindset is of great importance. The applicant should also be highly organized, able to meet deadlines, have a clear sense of responsibility and be goal oriented.

Information
