Protein Structure and Bioinformatics Group at Institute of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, Sweden is searching for motivated young scientists with recent PhD to investigate and develop computational tools for prediction of the harmful genetic variants (mutations) and mechanisms leading to diseases. The group utilized various bioinformatic approaches and develops machine learning-based predictors. Our Pathogenic-Or-Not -Pipeline (PON-P) has been succesfully applied to numerous cases and it has performed favorably in the Critical Assessment of Genome Interpretation (CAGI) challenges.
This position is for a scientist to investigate effects of disease-causing variations (mutations) and to develop computer methods to recognize disease-related cases among tolerated ones. The project will continue development of PON-P to improve its speed and performance and to expand it to new areas. Different kinds of information will be collected and combined to train new methods.
Experience on bioinformatics, programming and machine learning required. Knowledge about use and development of ontologies and biology (molecular biology, structural biology, genetics etc) would be beneficial. Experience about development of databases essential.
