National Genomics Infrastructure Director (föreståndare)

Published: 2019-12-10

SciLifeLab started in 2010 as a joint effort between four universities: Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University. SciLifeLab creates a unique environment for carrying out health and environmental research at the highest level. The SciLifeLab national infrastructure supports research activities at all Swedish universities, as well as at health care and industry.

Campus Solna is the largest research site for SciLifeLab hosting SciLifeLab researchers from the three Stockholm universities KI, KTH and SU. The national facilities are mainly present at the Stockholm and Uppsala sites, but a number of facilities are also situated in other parts of Sweden.

We now search for a Director for the National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) which is a national research infrastructure. NGI is funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR), the member universities (KTH, UU, KI, SU) and SciLifeLab. NGI represent the largest of SciLifeLab facilities with over 70 FTEs in Stockholm and Uppsala (total turnover costs > 175 MSEK/ 17.5 MEuro). The NGI is an internationally leading infrastructure in genomics and a unique and exceptionally important resource for the Swedish research community. NGI has more than 20 years of experience in providing large-scale genotyping and DNA sequencing as a service. Significant efforts are made at NGI to evaluate emerging technologies and develop novel methods in the rapidly changing field of genomics. This allows NGI to offer a unique combination of extensive consultative support (planning and project design meetings) and executive support (sequencing/ genotyping and pipeline analysis) for high-throughput DNA sequencing and genotyping to academic and industrial users in Sweden.

The new Director and professorship will have its academic affiliation to KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and will be placed at SciLifeLab Stockholm. The announced professor position in Genomics, corresponds to 50 % activity as Director of NGI and 50% activity as Research principle investigator. The Director will also interact with other Genomics facilities at SciLifeLab (
