The School of medical sciences is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in [medicine with specialization functional bioinformatics machine learning for genomic medicine] for a fixed-term appointment: 2 years with possibility to prolong.

This position is part of the research group Functional Bioinformatics ( and closely associated with the Cardiovascular Research Centre ( at the School of Medical Sciences.

Duties and responsibilities include Bioinformatics data analysis and research, implementing and further developing appropriate data analysis algorithms and workflows in genomic medicine, as well as systems biological modelling approaches. Different levels of functional data are available from large cohorts in Sweden, together with clinical data and outcome data on cardiovascular dysfunction. Statistical bioinformatics and functional systems biological modelling methods will be applied and further developed in order to better understand the ongoing regulatory cross-talk in this kind of systems as well as contributing to improved diagnostic/prognostic signatures.

Eligible for the appointment as postdoctoral researcher are applicants holding a doctoral degree in bioinformatics or in related subject areas (especially from computer science, statistics, epidemiology, physics, mathematics).
