    Opportunity: Coordinator of the Danish ELIXIR node on BIOINFORMATICS tools infrastructure @ DTU, Systems Biology -- Lyngby, Denmark
    Submitted by Signatur AS; posted on Saturday, January 05, 2013


    A full-time position as coordinator of the Danish ELIXIR node on bioinformatics tools infrastructure is currently available at Center for Biological Sequence Analysis, DTU Systems Biology. The coordinator of the Danish ELIXIR node will report to the steering committee of the Danish node.

    About the Danish ELIXIR node on bioinformatics tools infrastructure
    The planned Danish ELIXIR node on tool integration is a part of ELIXIR, a sustainable, distributed infrastructure for the storage and dissemination of life sciences data in Europe. The purpose of ELIXIR is to construct and operate such an infrastructure for biological information and tools in Europe to support life science research and its translation to medicine and the environment, the bio-industries and society. ELIXIR is, at a European level, directed by the ELIXIR Board where the coordinating node is the ELIXIR Hub at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, UK.

    The emerging Danish ELIXIR node on bioinformatics tool interoperability and integration will address the main problems in tool utilization experienced currently by the life sciences community, and aims to focus on the following key services: Creation of a comprehensive tool registry; Provision of tools in the form preferred by users across academia and industry, Benchmarking, tool sustainability and renewal; and Tool interoperability. The effort will build upon the ongoing efforts in this area within the European countries behind ELIXIR.

    The node is secured funding by a four-year grant. The academic partners behind the node represent the main academic stakeholders within the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology in Denmark; the industrial partners currently represent the major stakeholders within industrial bioinformatics in this country.
