PhD student position in medical science – Bioinformatics, UV damage in tumors

Type of employment: Fixed-term employment, 4 years

Extent: 100 %

Location: Sahlgrenska Academy, Gothenburg

First day of employment: As agreed

Reference number: UR 2017/181

Project title: Bioinformatics analyses of mutational processes and signatures in cancer

Job assignments

We seek a dedicated applicant for one available PhD position at the Institute of Biomedicine, to undertake interdisciplinary projects in the field of computational cancer genomics. The aim of the project is to enhance our understanding of how UV light affects the DNA of tumor cells. Large-scale experimental data generated in the lab will be combined with public datasets from human tumors. This can help provide better models describing how mutations arise in tumor genomes. It is an advantage if the applicant has a background in bioinformatics, or an equivalent combination of computer science and biomedicine. The project will be carried out in a highly collaborative environment, and will involve the use of established tools for analysis of high-volume sequencing data from tumors, as well as development of novel bioinformatical methods. The work will therefore involve programming and statistical analyses. The doctoral student is expected to develop independent i deas, and to communicate research results in oral and written form.

The PhD position comprises 4 years full-time studies and leads to a doctoral degree. The position is funded via doctoral studentship.


To be admitted to third-cycle studies you must fulfill both the general and the specific entry requirements. The general entry requirements is fulfilled if you have:
