Bioinformatics Scientist – opening for expert in functional genomics
Location: Aarhus, Denmark, CLC bio HQ
Have you ever wanted to build the world's best software platform for bioinformatics? To live in a Scandinavian city founded by Vikings? To work in a company that is young, vibrant and different? At CLC bio, we offer all of these, and more. Over just a few years, CLC bio has become a globally operating and world leading bioinformatics solutions provider. In the process, we have redefined the field of commercial bioinformatics with our unique ambition to build a fully integrated bioinfomatics platform that spans all the way from programming environments to advanced graphical user interfaces, and from desktop applications to high-performance computing tools. This platform is now used by researchers throughout the world in the fight against cancer, in the design of new crops to feed the world and in the creation of new medicines.
But it is not just our software that is different, it is also how we build it. Within our Research & Development department we provide a unique, creative environment for software development and research based on Scandinavian values and a lifestyle that attracts uniquely creative and ambitious researchers. Our culture is imbued with a "relaxed ambitiousness" based on our strong belief that the creativity of the individual is set free by sharing responsibility, initiative and decisions. This means that we offer an involving and non-bureaucratic environment that allows you to focus on your passion for bioinformatics, research and great software.
What we offer We encourage a casual, yet ambitious workplace ambience that drives and supports curiosity, learning, and knowledge sharing. In line with the Danish way of life, we also offer very flexible, family friendly working arrangements, allowing you to lead a balanced life while reaching your professional goals and ambitions. CLC bio is a truly international company. The R&D department reflects this with colleagues from a number of countries, with our cultures and languages bridged by a great team-spirit and drive. Our employees are passionate, high-achieving, innovative and love celebrating their achievements with cake, champagne and parties.
What we are looking for Presently, we are looking for a world class expert in functional genomics, who has the vision to design the next-generation of bioinformatics tools for integrating, visualizing and analyzing omics data. Building on the workflows that we already provide in genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics and other -omics areas, your main task will be to design algorithms and functionality for downstream analysis that refine and combine experimental results for use in functional genomics, systems biology, translational medicine and the like. Furthermore, you will represent CLC bio in an exciting commercial/academic research consortia working towards a systems biology framework for understanding the role of key protein complexes in embryonic stem cell differentiation and cancer - see http://www.4dcellfate.eu/.
