    Opportunity: Do you want to have notable impact on how SSI works with viral Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data for surveillance? @ Statens Serum Institut -- Copenhagen, Denmark
    Submitted by Signatur AS; posted on Thursday, December 12, 2019


    About Department of Virus & Microbiological Special Diagnostics:
    As our new colleague, you will be a part of the Department of Virus & Microbiological Special Diagnostics (VMS), where we perform diagnostics and provides clinical guidance for viral infections and serology. The department is the national central laboratory for human virology, including surveillance of viral infections and research and development within the field. The department comprises the national WHO Centre on influenza, polio and measles/rubella. The department is also a member of the European Network for Imported Viral Diseases (ENIVD), thus participating in the European collaboration on surveillance of viral infections.


    About the position:
    • We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic postdoc.
    • You will be involved in research activities within the frame of the FluZooMark project.
    • Your primary task will be to assist in the bioinformatics requirements for the FluZooMark project as well as assisting in implementing additional viral bioinformatic tools for viral surveillance.
    • The research project involves bioinformatics, and you will be looking for viral molecular markers in the viral genome related to zoonotic transmission from NGS data of thousands of influenza virus samples from both human and swine origin.


    Required qualifications:
    • Ideally, you are a bioinformatician with a PhD. You have experience working with viral data and you feel comfortable working with this data already. You will require the ability to install and run various viral bioinformatics pipelines on a Linux server and be able to, with the assistance of the Virologists, interpret the results.
    • You speak English fluently though Danish fluency is also a benefit.
    Technical requirements:
    • Fluency within a Linux environment
    • Install, run, debug, and maintain bioinformatic pipelines
    Optional requirements:
    • Knowledge of virology (i.e. Influenza)
    • Programming/Statistical knowledge (i.e. Python, R)
    • Experience with bioinformatic tools/pipelines (i.e. V-pipe, NextStrain, PyMol, BEAST)
    • Experience with Sweep Dynamics plots


    The employment as postdoc is a full time and fixed-term position for three years.

    The employment will be in accordance with the terms of the collective agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Federation of Professional Associations (AC-overenskomsten) and the Danish Ministry of Finance's circular concerning the job structure for scientific staff working with research at sector research institutions (Stillingsstruktur for videnskabeligt personale med forskningsopgaver ved sektorforskningsinstitutioner).

    If you come from abroad, we will be happy to assist you in the transition process.


    Statens Serum Institut (SSI) is under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Health. Our main duty is to ensure preparedness against infectious diseases and biological threats as well as control of congenital disorders.
