Do you want to be part of the Danish National Genome Center and push the limits for Precision Medicine in Denmark? Are you experienced in sequencing and do you have knowledge of all the datatypes that should be captured and saved from such experiments? Are you capable of leading the Danish National Genome Center’s efforts designing the sequencing data capture and storage guidelines required in Precision Medicine?

If you can answer yes, apply for this newly established position as Whole Genome Sequence data expert (WGS data expert) with data acquisition managing responsibility at the Danish National Genome Center in Copenhagen.

About the Danish National Genome Center
The primary task of the Danish National Genome Center is to lay the foundation for the development of better diagnostics and more targeted treatments using whole genome sequencing (WGS). The Center has a national responsibility to develop state of the art infrastructure to enable analysis on big biomedical heterogenous data.

One of the Danish National Genome Center’s main goals is to be at the forefront of new big data solutions in the healthcare domain. The Danish National Genome Center is working with HPC, cloud, network, servers, storage, applications, users, and cross-cutting processes in a Linux software environment.

About the position as WGS data expert
To advance the use of Precision Medicine, using WGS it is essential to accurately and timely capture all information from such experiments which may influence how the generated data is interpreted and used in downstream analysis. Accurate data capture will be highly important in clinical diagnostic, for variant calling, interpretation and treatment strategies. Thus, it is important for the future users of the Danish National Genome Center platform that this information is available.

Your primary tasks will be to work with the bioinformatics database team, and the sequencing teams to ensure that all relevant information from the sequencing is captured and stored in an appropriate format in the NGC databases. Sequencing is a rapidly evolving technology and the data that needs to be captured, and how it shall be interpreted will evolve as well. The WGS data expert has the responsibility to follow this development closely and make sure the appropriate changes are made to the database systems. You will be part of a team of experts in the Precision Medicine field, including both health experts and IT experts that can help you with the databases, and you will also have access to most leading experts of the field. In addition to the above, you will be part of a bioinformatics team that has the main responsibility for the National Genome Database, the National Knowledge Base, and the clinical data analysis pipelines. As a part of the Bioinformatics team, you will also be involved with other tasks of the team.

Professional qualifications
We are looking for an experienced academic candidate with a scientific background in life science.

The ideal candidate has a PhD-degree within life sciences, is an expert in next generation sequencing technologies and has hands on experience with human sequencing data.

We are looking for a candidate who can:

  • Design the communication infrastructure for getting genome & metadata into the database in an automated fashion
  • Lead the Danish National Genome Center’s efforts for ensuring that all relevant information about sequencing experiments is captured and stored in the appropriate NGC database
  • Be a part of a Bioinformatics team and help the team reach its goals and deadlines.
Thrive in a start-up environment and adapt to rapid changes.

Personal qualifications
We are looking for a candidate that is:

  • Persistent. You are a diligent, hardworking person who continues to work and take new initiatives in order to reach a goal.
