University of Oslo Postdoctoral Fellowship – Functional Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics, Norway

Publish Date: Jul 26, 2016

Deadline: Aug 31, 2016

Postdoctoral Fellowship – Functional Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics

The Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM), was established in 2008 as a national partnership institution with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory ( together with similar centre in Sweden and Finland under the Nordic EMBL Partnership with an overall objective of facilitating translation of discoveries in basic medical research into clinical practice. NCMM focuses particularly on disease mechanisms where Norway has clear strengths and will investigate mechanisms of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and CNS-related diseases, inflammation and immune disorders and stem cells.


The Breast Cancer Research group of Antoni Hurtado is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral research for a three-year period with experience in genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. The Hurtado’s laboratory studies the mechanism of resistance to treatments in breast and endometrial cancers. The laboratory has established collaboration with Norwegian and international laboratories, which are key for the success of the project. The successful candidate will work with a team of researchers and scientists.

Job description:

The team is looking for a candidate with experience in functional genomics and proteomics. Experience in computational analyses related with High-throughput sequencing is also needed. The post-doc will be responsible of obtaining and analysing both proteomic and genomic data obtained from tissue culture experiments. Moreover, wide knowledge in breast and endometrial of the molecular mechanism driving these pathologies will be an additional value for this job offer.

Skills required:

We seek a highly motivated person who appreciates working in an international and interactive environment. The ideal applicant is characterized to have strong organizational and communication skills. Is also expected to work effectively within a variety of situations, handle several projects simultaneously and complete tasks within the relevant time lines.

Qualified candidates must have a PhD with demonstrable knowledge in Biology/Genomics skills. Candidate should have extensive experience in the following methods:

  • High-throughput sequencing methodologies: ChIP-sequencing, FAIRE-sequencing and RNA-sequencing
  • Proteomic methodologies: RIME (ChIP coupled to MS)
  • Computational analyses of genomic data: web-based bioinformatics tools, DNA genome and protein informatics
  • Standard molecular methods for gene manipulation, gene detection, culturing and handling cell lines

Other information:

The University of Oslo has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results and intellectual property.

Applications should include a covering letter summarizing the applicant’s career, past research accomplishments (1-2 pages), CV and a list of publications, copies of certificates and grades, and names of three references.

The position will be placed as SKO 1352 (Position Code) postdoctoral research fellow, with salary range depending on qualifications: step 57 - 65 (NOK 483 700 – 560 700). The position is for three years.
