    Opportunity: Data Scientist for Impactful Health Research @ Statens Serum Institut -- Copenhagen, Denmark
    Submitted by Signatur AS; posted on Monday, June 29, 2020


    The Department of Epidemiology Research at Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark, is looking for a highly motivated data scientist for data-heavy epidemiological research projects in an international and cross-disciplinary research environment encompassing medical doctors, statisticians, bioinformaticians, biologists and public health scientists. The position is initially for 4 years with the possibility for extension.

    About us:
    The Department of Epidemiology Research presently employs 45 people who carry out epidemiology research with a focus on heart diseases, cancer, infectious diseases, drugs, vaccines, nutrition as well as genetics. Our research is primarily based on data from Danish national registries and The Danish National Biobank. We work with large-scale high-dimensional data. Our goal is to produce research of the highest possible quality to guide and influence clinical medicine and public health.


    The position:
    As our new data scientist colleague, you will become part of research teams working on epidemiological research projects of the highest international standards. This could be studies on who are at highest risk for severe COVID-19 disease, how effective the seasonal influenza vaccine is, or is it safe to use antidepressants during pregnancy. You will take on an essential role in helping us derive more information from our data sources in a timely manner. This will primarily involve supporting us with 1) data management, 2) streamlining our research workflows by developing software tools for data management and analysis, and 3) implementing machine learning models on health data.


    Your education, experience and personal qualifications:
    You have an MSc in data science, computer science, statistics, bioinformatics or a related field and a keen interest in health research, programming and machine learning.

    We expect you to have:
    • A passion for all things data
    • Strong skills in Python and/or R
    • Experience with SQL
    • Experience with machine learning
    • Excellent writing and communication skills in Danish and/or English.
    In addition, we find it important that you enjoy working on several projects at a time and in a cross disciplinary setting with colleagues. The position is newly established in our department, and as such you will be involved in formulating the responsibilities, tasks and goals for the position. A PhD study focused on data science aspects of epidemiology research is a future possibility.


    The position is covered by the terms of the collective agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC-overenskomsten).

    The position is initially for 4 years with possibility for extension.
