My personal and professional adventure into Science

Computerome videos

Many people have asked me for a post with Computerome videos, and as we just had two more videos produced I think this is the time for a post with them all. I hope you will enjoy 🙂

Computerome – Supercomputer generating more knowledge at a lower cost in a high security data environment

Usercase: Researchers from Statens Serum Institut (SSI) explain that they chose to use Computerome for their research projects such as IPSYCH because of the extremely high security levels in data governance, strong authentication processes and very efficient and professional service delivered by the staff at Computerome.
Part of the advantage of using Computerome is the large volumes of big data already available in the Computerome secure cloud. The researchers use this advantage to mine for potentially interesting diseases with all generated data and reference data. Using the power of Computerome they augment their research by generating more knowledge at a lower cost.
The researchers at SSI plan to expand collaborations with Computerome not only for business, but also for research. SSI’s collaborators at Harvard University, USA also have the access to Computerome and claim the infrastructure at Computerome matches or perhaps tops their own platform.

 

Copenhagen Fur

Computerome – A game changer in research – DeiC Pilot Project User case: Copenhagen Fur.
Industrial PhD student Emma Hagberg at Copenhagen Fur has had her project accepted as a National e-Science Pilot Project on Computerome. Moving the data analysis to Computerome has been a game changer. It has freed up both computational power and time allowing the researcher to do additional research while Computerome works thereby advancing the amount of research in the project. The National eScience Pilot Projects are funded by DeiC. The projects use the einfrastructure build by DeiC and the Danish universities to increase the use of escience in Denmark. The projects are open to all fields that can benefit from the e-science infrastructure.

Bioinformatician with interest in human clinical microbiology

We are looking for a highly skilled bioinformatician with ambitions within human microbiology.

The Department of Microbiology and Infection Control works with surveillance of bacteria causing human infections. We have implemented next generation sequencing (NGS) of whole bacterial genomes as an advanced tool in our surveillance and part of our research. We have an open 2-year position as a bioinformatician to join our applied bioinformatics group.

You will be a part of a department with strong ambitions on development of new techniques for understanding microbial evolution; implementation of NGS based surveillance as well as microbiome analysis. We are a total of 120 persons. The position will involve a multitude of projects including:

  • Establishing species-specific NGS data analysis pipeline in active collaboration with microbiologists and evaluate the performance of NGS in relation to outbreak investigations and evolutionary studies.
  • Implement various new bioinformatics tools in the analysis including microbial genome-wide association, microbiome analysis, RNAseq analysis.

 

Highly skilled with the ability to apply theory to practice

You are a bioinformatician by training (MSc or PhD) and have experience with programming, phylogeny, statistics, and large data sets.

You are an enthusiastic and creative person with an interest in combining bioinformatics and microbiology to make a user-friendly surveillance system based on NGS, solve both large and small bioinformatics problems. You have excellent cooperation and communication skills and are able to apply theory to practice.

You are able to tackle many projects at the same time.

Inspiring colleagues and flexible working conditions

We offer an interesting job with highly qualified colleagues in a dedicated team consisting of two molecular biologists and a technician combining different scientific disciplines in close collaboration with medical experts and another bioinformatician in an inspiring workplace located in central Copenhagen. You will be a part of an institute offering flexible working conditions and the chance to be making a difference.

Terms of employment

The position is limited to two years and is covered by the terms of the collective agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and Organisation of Academics.

Are you interested?
