20 open permanent staff positions for the new Data platform and Data Science Nodes (DSNs)

One of the main objectives of the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), is to train and recruit the next generation of data-driven life scientists and by doing so, create strong and globally competitive computational and data science capabilities in Swedish life science. Furthermore, advanced technical staff will be essential and a central part of the program.

In order to fulfill this vision, the DDLS is now expanding its national bioinformatics and data infrastructures with more than 20 permanent staff members to support Swedish scientists performing data-driven research. These positions will help establish four new national Data Science Nodes across Sweden each one primarily focusing on one of the four strategic research areas within the program (Cell and molecular biology, Precision medicine and diagnostics, Evolution and biodiversity, Epidemiology and biology of infections).

The Data Science Nodes will be located in connection to strong local research environments at leading Swedish universities, with the staff still fully integrated with SciLifeLab’s unique national teams at the Bioinformatics platform (NBIS) and the SciLifeLab Data Centre.

If you are (or know someone who are) a system developer, Data engineer, Data steward, AI and Machine Learning expert, or a Bioinformatics expert in fields, including (but not limited to) clinical molecular profiling and diagnostics, single-cell and spatial omics, evolution, environmental omics, immunology and host-interaction systems, and structural bioinformatics, don’t miss this opportunity and join our emerging Data Science Nodes and play a key role in data-driven life science!
