Two postdoctoral positions in Systems Epidemiology at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oulu

The Computational Medicine Research Team (http://computationalmedicine.fi/) invites highly motivated individuals to apply for postdoctoral positions at the University of Oulu, Finland. These positions are initially for 2 years with a broad focus on systems epidemiology, i.e., integration of multi-omics approaches and data in epidemiology and genetics. Potential extensions are possible for successful candidates. We would also be interested in discussing with candidates at assistant or associate professor level.

Reseach Enviroment

These positions and the work to be done are part of our global endeavour aiming to understand and improve cardiometabolic risk assessment by conducting high-throughput multi-omics profiling of extensive population cohorts and trials at unprecedented sample-sizes. Large-scale studies are a prerequisite for statistically sound metabolic stratifications as well as for understanding the (patho)physiological function of potential new disease biomarkers and the causal pathways in disease aetiology with the aid of modern genetic data. Please see the following recent papers to understand our thinking; PubMed PMID numbers: 29106475, 29038155, 28569269, 27955712, 27789667, 27005778 and 27989323.
We expect you to have a PhD degree in Bioengineering, Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Medical Sciences, Statistics, Epidemiology, or in a related area. You would need to have good skills in written and spoken English. Knowledge of medical & epidemiological statistics and skills to use R would be essential. A few international peer-reviewed publications in good journals would also be a prerequisite for these positions.
