The single cell core facility of Flemingsberg Campus (SICOF)
We are a team of several research engineers, as well as senior scientists working together at the Single cell Core Facility of Flemingsberg (SICOF), where we define cells though their transcriptome as a service to Karolinska Institute. Our main technological focus is single cell sequencing using Smart-seq2/3 chemistry and the commercially available 10x genomics single cell solution. Our working group is made up of a mix of complementary skills in order to quickly and effectively drive research projects forward. We are currently looking for a bioinformatician with laboratory manager duties to primarily strengthen our team in the area of data analysis.
Department of Medicine (MedH)
The department of Medicine, Huddinge conducts graduate and post-graduate education, as well as research, within a wide range of the medical field, covering all internal medicine specialties, infectious diseases and dermatology. The department consists of seven units with a total of nearly 60 research groups. Our ambition is to be the leading department for medical research and education.
The position of bioinformatician with lab management duties at SICOF includes the following tasks:
We are looking for an experienced person with extensive bioinformatical knowledge in the field of single cell sequencing. The applicant should have substantial proficiency working in a Linux environment, as well as possess expertise in the coding languages of Python and R. Experience of working with a computing server is required. Strong understanding of single cell clustering algorithms is required and prior experience with Smart-seq2/3 data and 10x Genomics data is paramount.
A major step in single cell sequencing experiments is the isolation of primary cells and their deposition in a 384 well plate using a FACS. The applicant should therefore have good documented use of FACS machines and primary isolation techniques. Prior experience with a BD FACSMelody is a strong merit, as well as practical knowledge on primary cell isolation from mouse models.
SICOF has many projects running on cell heterogeneity of the central nervous system and as thus, knowledge in this area qualifies as a merit.
We are looking for a Bioinformatician who is able to work dynamically at MedH, an international and multidisciplinary research department. As communication with the user base is paramount, excellent communication skills in the English language is of utmost importance. Personal suitability will be a strong selection criterion. The applicant will be assessed on basis of technical competence, as well as past experience.
