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 Researcher (Computational Biologist) 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, Pacific Biosciences or Element Biosciences. The NGI offers a broad method spectrum including spatial single-cell sequencing or ancient DNA sequencing and we deliver hundreds of projects per year.

Our team for strategic relations collaborates with technology providers, industrial partners and academic researchers to improve sequencing protocols and adapt them to new research questions. New kits and technologies are evaluated, and analysis workflows for brand-new assays need to be established.

As computational biologist within the strategic relations team of the NGI, you will mostly conduct explorative data analyses using data from novel assays and technologies. Therefore, the ideal candidate must know quality criteria for sequencing data inside out and have a good grasp of various sequencing assays. Wet lab experience is meriting, but not required, if you are able to understand the library construction protocols and how a failed/underperforming step may show in the resulting data. Proficiency in data visualization, report writing with Quarto/Jupyter, and effective communication of results to coworkers and external collaborators are essential. The role requires a candidate who combines technical expertise, interest in sequencing technology, creativity and strong communication skills to advance our research initiatives.

I am happy to answer questions regarding the work at NGI/SciLifeLab and also e.g. about living in Stockholm and Sweden.

Best Matthias

PS: Become my colleague in a really nice team!
