You will join a growing local network of bioinformaticians and be able to use the high-capacity computational infrastructure of the local Bioinformatics centre. As an employee of a Finnish university, you will also have access to the national computational infrastructure of the CSC. The position also offers a possibility to participate in teaching and research projects in computational biomedicine.
