Responsibilities/Job Description

The main project of this group is the Human Protein Atlas project, where a combination of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and antibody-based profiling is used to study the global protein expression patterns in human cells, tissues and organs. The group is also involved in the Swedish SCAPIS SciLifeLab Wellness Profiling (S3WP) program, which was started to define the wellness profiles in a healthy population based on a combination of classical clinical chemistry, advanced medical imaging and extensive omics profiling and is now focusing on disease cohorts.

The general aim in the group is to study the longitudinal effects of lifestyle variation based on personalized omics profiles as well as contributing to the global mapping of all human proteins within the Human Protein Atlas program. We are now looking for a postdoc with strong background in bioinformatics with the goal to perform integrative analysis for the large-scale data resulting from both the S3WP program and the Human Protein Atlas project. The position includes participation in the research group's work in the Division of Systems Biology at the Department of Protein Science, KTH Solna campus and SciLifeLab. This includes the development of research networks, further development of your own scientific skills and independence, and active participation in education at all levels.
