Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral researcher position to join the multi-disciplinary groups of bioinformatics, biology & medicine.
Our research/The group
We aim to further our understanding of the genome by integrating large-scale genomic datasets. We develop computational methods to exploit multi-dimensional genomic/epigenomic/transcriptomic landscapes to understand cell-type specific or spatio-temporal gene regulation. Using computational integrative approaches, we also study transcriptional mechanisms controlling cell differentiation and cell identify. Our areas of research include studying gene regulations in adipocyte, liver, cancer cells and stem cell differentiation.
For this, we develop computational algorithms for various genome scale datasets including DNA methylation, single cell RNAseq, ChIP-exo, GROseq and HiC.

Project/The research project(s)
By applying integrative approaches or developing new computational algorithms, the successful candidate will study gene regulatory mechanisms in, but not limited to, blood cancers, adipogenesis and cell differentiation. A candidate also can join bioinformatics research in precision oncology. Projects are highly multidisciplinary and closely collaborate with Translational Hematology Programme and BRIC members at the University of Copenhagen.
Start: Preferably April 2020 or after agreement.
Duration: 2 years.
Working hours per week: 37.
We expect you to be a highly motivated and highly ambitious scientist with the following qualifications:
A PhD in Math, Computer Science, Engineering.
Strong programming skills (Python, C, etc.).
Knowledge of next generation sequencing data and/or data mining.
Excellent English skills written and spoken.
Place of employment
The employment is at BRIC, University of Copenhagen. BRIC is located in the Biocenter, close to the center of Copenhagen. We offer creative and stimulating working conditions in a dynamic and international research environment. Our research facilities include modern laboratories and a number of core facilities shared between the 23 research groups at BRIC and the neighboring Finsen Laboratory.
We have weekly journal clubs, data clubs, seminars with invited speakers and a young researchers club ASAP and our own PhD programme, MoMeD and our own www.bric.ku.dk/phd-and-postdoc-programme/postdoc-career-programme/.
BRIC actively participates in the European alliance, EU-life consisting of 13 excellent life science research institutions eu-life.eu/
