    Opportunity: Postdoc in computational diabetes systems biology @ DTU/Novo Nordisk -- Lyngby, Denmark
    Submitted by Signatur AS; posted on Wednesday, September 25, 2013

    BACKGROUND

    About the Department:
    We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on computational systems biology of type 2 diabetes. The candidate will work at the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis, Department of Systems Biology at Technical University of Denmark in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark. The candidate will be supervised by Professor Søren Brunak, and will be co-advised by Dr. Regine Bergholdt from Novo Nordisk. The position is funded by the Novo Nordisk IMI-programme.

    The candidate will be working in the DIRECT consortium, an IMI-funded pan-European diabetes research consortium partially funded by Novo Nordisk, aiming at helping each type 2 diabetes patient to receive optimal treatment via enhanced patient stratification. The goal of the DIRECT consortium is to identify novel biomarkers and define subtypes of type 2 diabetes with rapid diabetes development and progression as well as altered response to diabetes treatment.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    The postdoctoral fellow will work in a multidisciplinary project team led by Professor Søren Brunak. The candidate will focus on type 2 diabetes data analysis using computational systems biology methods. The candidate will utilize data integration, statistical genetics and pathway-based methods to identify novel biomarkers and to study diabetes etiology.

    REQUIREMENTS

    You hold a PhD degree or equivalent in biology, genetics, statistics, computational biology, or related discipline of biomedical research. You have preferably experience in statistical genetics, genomics and knowledge of R. Programming experience is required as is having worked with large data. Research experience in diabetes is a plus.

    TERMS & COMPENSATION

    The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union. The period of employment is for 2 years.
