University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Assistant Professor in Computational Precision Medicine

University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Odense M, Denmark

The Faculty of Science at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) invites applicants to apply for an assistant professorship position in computational precision medicine.

This position will be anchored at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMADA) and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) and is part of a larger strategic investment in computational precision medicine at SDU. The successful candidate will be supported in building his/her research career in an interdisciplinary context. Furthermore, it is expected that the candidate will play a leading role in shaping the educational profile of bioinformatics and computational biomedicine at SDU.

SDU offers a modern, inclusive, international and interdisciplinary working environment with state-of-the-art facilities as well as a strong tradition for collaboration across faculties. As the Faculties of Science and Health Sciences and the Odense University Hospital within a few years will share one major campus in Odense, further synergies and stronger ties between the units are expected. The SDU eScience Centre is a national provider of HPC infrastructure for research, and thus offers access to attractive computational resources for life sciences.

Candidates for the position are expected to have a PhD degree and considerable postdoctoral research experience. The assistant professorship position is for a duration of three years. The departments have an exceptional track record in providing tenure for successful assistant professors.

Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of Danish is not a prerequisite for application, however, the primary administrative language at SDU is Danish and staff should therefore be willing to acquire Danish skills within a couple of years.

Deadline: 7 June 2019.
