Bioin­form­atician/FIMM & ICAN

University of Helsinki

Helsinki, Finland

The bioinformatician will be working in two closely related subprojects of iCAN Flagship project in cancer precision medicine of solid tumors, COMPORG (immuno-organoids & urological cancers) and iCAN-PEDI (functional precision medicine of pediatric solid cancers), advancing personalized cancer diagnostics and treatment. Our multidisciplinary teams work closely together with clinicians at the hospitals, and our aim is to integrate the clinical and omics data into an analysis platform to enable the cutting-edge cancer research and robust translation back to the clinics for the patient's benefit.

We are looking for a bioinformatician with experience in omics data analysis and especially integration with other data, such as clinical data. Our omics data comes from, for example, high throughput drug testing, DNA/RNA sequencing, microscopic imaging, ligandome analysis and other approaches (e.g. single cell sequencing, metabolomics, pharmacogenomics). The candidate will also have to be able to build up a database for the ligandome data.

As a Bioinformatician, depending on your profile and experience, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Together with the iCAN data team, build the iCAN data analysis platform to enable integration of clinical and research data
  • Manage our omics data and to develop computational pipelines to further integrate and analyze molecular profiling and imaging data for digital precision cancer medicine
  • Work with large datasets in cloud environment
  • Create software tools for clinical translation with the potential of revolutionizing treatment of cancer

Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree (and/or PhD) in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, or equivalent
  • Previous experience with omics data, data science or distributed computing environments is appreciated but not required – yet ability to quickly learn new things is essential
  • Programming skills, especially in R and/or Python
  • Understanding of database fundamentals
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills in English; Finnish skills are not required
  • Solution-seeking, proactive and responsible way of working with good social abilities to work as a part of an interdisciplinary team and communicate between different experts (researchers, clinicians, etc.).
