Suomen Solubiologit ry:n 45-vuotisjuhlaseminaari 15.3.19 Jyväskylässä

21.3.2019 | Koulutukset / seminaarit

Suomen Solubiologit ry:n hallitus haluaa kiittää kaikkia Suomen Solubiologit 45-vuotisjuhlaseminaariin osallistuneita kävijöitä, puhujia ja näytteilleasettajia! Paikan päällä saadun palautteen perusteella juhlaseminaarimme oli erittäin onnistunut, ja väkeäkin oli oikein mukavasti. Yhdistyksemme sai 45v onnittelut myös Akavan Etelä-Pohjanmaan puheenjohtajalta Kari Hongistolta, jonka terveiset luettiin seminaarimme alussa. Päivämme alkoi yhdistyksen vuosikokouksella, minkä jälkeen seurasi varsinainen juhlaseminaari. Seminaarin aikana saimme kuulla esitykset Eva-Mari Arolta (akateemikko, professori), Howy Jacobsilta (professori), Eeva-Liisa Eskeliseltä (professori), Jyrki Heinolta (professori), Markku Kallajoelta (dosentti, patologi) ja Markku Kulomaalta (emeritusprofessori). Päivä huipentui cocktailtilaisuuteen, jonka aikana nautimme hyvästä ruoasta ja seurasta. Lisäksi Jari Rantamäelle myönnettiin yhdistyksen kunniajäsenyys, ja seminaarikävijät pääsivät kisaamaan Kahoot! tietovisan merkeissä. Tästä on hyvä jatkaa työtä solubiologien hyväksi!

  • Proficient in programming in R or Python, basic knowledge of statistical modelling and data mining, and ability to query databases and handle large data sets.
  • Experience in using toxicology and toxicogenomic databases is a plus.
  • Excellent analytical, communication and organizational skills.
  • Demonstrated capability as highly organized, a creative problem-solver, self-motivated and able to work independently as well as within cross-functional teams. 
  • Fluency in written and spoken English
