Qualification Details

You will have a bachelor’s degree in a subject such as bioinformatics. Experience with analysis and prediction of protein interaction network is essential, including evaluation of the reliability of protein interaction networks. The job requires experience with working on Linux servers and with programming Python or R. Since the job involves close collaboration with researchers, strong communication and interpersonal skills are required.

Preferred experience:

  • Experience with analysis and visualization of protein interaction networks, ideally using STRING and Cytoscape
  • Experience with interpretation of the results from automatic text mining
  • Knowledge of methodologies for quality assessment and quality scoring of protein interaction networks.

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will be employed in the Cellular Network Biology group with reference to Prof. Lars Juhl Jensen. The group develops state-of-the-art tools for generation and analysis of molecular interaction networks from proteomics data and text mining, which we make freely available to the scientific community.

Tasks include:

  • Developing scripts to combine and integrate interaction data from, e.g., experimental sources and automatic text mining
  • Developing a pipeline to automatically transfer both intraspecies and interspecies interactions to host–parasite protein pairs based on homology
  • Scoring and assessing the quality of the resulting host–parasite interaction networks through benchmarking against current knowledge
  • Documenting the code base to make it usable by others
