Duties and responsibilities
Duties and responsibilities include further development of a sustainable database infrastructure for biomedical research at Örebro University. The daily work includes database curation, documented data formatting and cleaning, data integration, and data digitalization of clinical and molecular data in biomedical research and clinical studies. A core part of this work is the communication with the different participating researchers, to convert an understanding of the data into appropriate data structures for database input, output, and for subsequent analysis.
The person we are looking for has studied computer science on Master of Science level (or a similar education) and has experience with open-source database management/development as well as script programming on a Linux background. A core qualification also includes knowledge about and experience to work with biomedical data. The position is service-oriented and therefore requires excellent communication capabilities, oral and in writing, both in Swedish and English.
Your skills should include experience in communicating with researchers in the fields of medicine and biomedicine.
Close attention will be paid to your personal qualities, your ability to perform duties autonomously, your interpersonal skills and ability to cooperate, as well as your ability to relate to people in a way that inspires trust and confidence. We expect you to be flexible and open to change with the ability to assume a quality-conscious and responsible approach towards your duties.
