Become part of Stockholm's vibrant life science community and interact with bright, kind and international colleagues at the Science for Life Laboratory! We invite applications for a permanent position as Bioinformatician at the National Genomics Infrastructure in Stockholm.

The Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) is an institution for the advancement of molecular bio-sciences in Sweden and part of the national research infrastructure. It consists of ten platforms, each covering a specific area of expertise and technology with relevance to the life sciences. The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) platform provides access to state of the art DNA sequencing technology and operates devices from various technology providers such as Illumina, Oxford Nanopore Technologies or Pacific Biosciences. The NGI offers a broad method spectrum including spatial single-cell sequencing or ancient DNA sequencing and also contributes to the Earth Biogenome Project and we deliver hundreds of projects per year.

In the applications team, we evaluate new kits and technologies and establish the protocols and analyses that will later be offered as routine applications to our research users. As a bioinformatician within the applications team of the NGI, you will create and maintain our analysis pipelines in Nextflow, develop new research software (currently mainly Python, but somebody well-versed in Rust or Go would be very welcome!) or web applications and improve our internal data engineering solutions.

The demand for highly specialized, tailor-made research software by the Swedish scientific community is high and increasing, in particular with regard to the newly launched Data-Driven Life Science program. This joint effort by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation (KAW) and the SciLifeLab offers many exciting opportunities for the years to come. It should also be stressed that we have a strong say in the tasks we work on and usually can choose those that best matches our skills and interests. I am happy to answer questions regarding the work and also e.g. about living in Stockholm.

Best Matthias

PS: Become my colleague in a really nice team!
