The National Genome Center
are looking for new employees with IT-experience and great interest in IT to join the new operations unit at the National Genom Center. If you are interested in a unique opportunity to be involved and put your mark on the development on the new infrastructure for personalized medicine in Denmark you should consider applying for one (or more) of the available IT-positions.

About the National Genome Center
In December 2016, the Danish Government and Danish Regions launched the national strategy for Personalised Medicine. The strategy lays the foundation for a balanced development of Personalised Medicine in Denmark for the benefit of patients – now and in the future. The National Genome Center is established as part of the realisation of the national strategy for Personalised Medicine 2017-2020 and is intended to ensure governance and coordination of the strategy’s initiatives at the national level. The center’s primary task is to lay the foundation for the development of better diagnostics and more targeted treatments using whole genome sequencing. In order to achieve this goal, the National Genome Center’s core mission is, in cooperation with the Danish Regions and universities, to establish and operate a national technological infrastructure with sufficient capacity to handle a significant increase in the use of whole genome sequencing in the Danish healthcare system and associated needs for data analysis, interpretation, storage, knowledge sharing, and research.

The National Genome Center is located at Ørestads Boulevard 5, 2300 København S, together with Statens Serum Institute and the Danish Health Data Authority. The center is expected to become an organization with a core of approx. 40 employees including a separate organization in relation to IT infrastructure (HPC systems, etc.). Broad cooperation across the country with regions, universities, organizations, etc. is essential for the Center’s work.

More information about the national strategy for Personalised Medicine and the National Genome Center is to be found at under “Tema”.
