Ph.d. & forskning




Måløv, Capital Region of Denmark, DK

Do you like working on the intersection between biology and data, and apply cutting edge omics analyses in drug discovery? Then this job might be right for you. We are looking for a bioinformatician with excellent knowledge of biology to join our growing team of Bioinformatics specialists supporting drug discovery and development in Novo Nordisk.

About the department

The Department of Bioinformatics and Data Mining combines strong computational skills with biological insights through the integrative analysis of internal and external biomedical data. Our analytical expertise spans a wide range of areas, from sequence analysis, many different omics, pathway analysis, to text-mining. We contribute to all aspects of pre-clinical research projects at Novo Nordisk, where we act as bioinformatics and data analysis experts and participate in external collaborations with academic and biotech partners. Our work results in real impacts on new medicines for highly important diseases of unmet medical need.

The position

Your main responsibility will be to work closely with our scientists in Global Drug Development & Global Research Technology to add value to pre-clinical drug discovery projects. Much of the work revolves around integrative analyses of diverse datasets (e.g. RNA-seq, proteomics, and disease genetics) to discover and validate novel drug targets and biomarkers, and identify who is most likely to benefit from these novel treatments. As such you will have the creative mindset and skills to make most of the available data. You will be comfortable with working in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment, and are able to clearly communicate your results to scientists with diverse backgrounds.


The main qualifications are as below:

  • PhD in Bioinformatics / Computational Science / Biological Sciences or equivalent subjects
  • Ability and strong drive to solve complex problems individually and in a team, with minimal supervision
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to respond to shifting priorities in a dynamic setting
  • Ability to communicate proficiently with non-experts, both verbally and non-verbally
  • Experience with common bioinformatics programming languages (e.g. Python, R), version control and HPC/cloud computing
  • Demonstrated skills in the analysis of multiple large omics datasets such as (single-cell) transcriptomics and proteomics
  • Knowledge of biological mechanisms and application of computational biology methods (preferably in the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry)
