Postdoctor in Bioinformatics

Department of Molecular Medicine, Oslo universitetssykehus HF


Oslo University Hospital is Scandinavia´s largest hospital with more than 20,000 employees, and is a major contributor to biomedical research in Norway.

A postdoctoral fellowship in epigenetic computational analysis is now available in the Dahl research group, located at the research section of the Department of Molecular Medicine. The Dahl Laboratory is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral research fellows to lead studies to understand epigenetic regulation and aberrations in 1) early embryo development and 2) in aging and rejuvenation.
A (senior) postdoctoral fellow with a strong publication record will have the opportunity to be supported for carrier advancement towards becoming a project group leader and further towards a principal investigator position.

The Dahl Laboratory is well positioned for conducting basic research using both mouse and patient material, as well as performing advanced clinical studies. Specific projects focus on the epigenetic reprogramming of early embryo development and its significance for human reproduction. An overarching theme is the understanding of mechanisms and epigenetic information in the passing of life from one generation to the next, building on our recent discoveries (Dahl et al., Nature 2016). Aging related projects have a focus on stem cell aging, rejuvenation after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in healthy humans and cancer. We have a particular interest in the mechanisms of aging and rejuvenation.

Interested persons should submit the following documents:

  1. A concise, single-page application letter, including a summary of scientific work, future interests and motivation for applying.
  2. Curriculum vitae (summarizing education, positions and other qualifying activity).
  3. List of publications. (Submitted manuscripts may also be included).
  4. Copies of educational certificates with grades.
  5. Letter of recommendation or reference letter from previous supervisors/mentors is optional, but considered an advantage.
  6. Contact information of three references that must include former coworkers and supervisors (name, email address, affiliation, phone number and relation to the candidate).

Post-doctoral 100% research fellowship in psychology or other relevant health profession (August 2019 – June 2023) at Centre for Rare Disorders

Centre for Rare Disorders in Norway is a multidisciplinary, nationwide resource centre offering information, counselling and seminars about 100 rare disorders. We cover medical, social and pedagogical aspects, and our services are aimed at patients/persons with a rare disorder and their families, as well as professionals working with these disorders.

Centre for Rare Disorders has an active research team, and is currently involved in several larger studies, in collaboration with specialised health services, and national and international universities.  You can find more information about the centre and other ongoing projects on our website www.sjeldnediagnoser.no

A 100 % post-doctoral research fellowship is available at Centre for Rare Disorders,  Oslo University Hospital, Norway (August 2019 – June 2023). 

Project title: Online psychosocial support for young people distressed by appearance-altering conditions: A randomised control trial (RCT) 

Centre for Rare Disorders has received funding from the Research Council of Norway for the testing and evaluation of an online intervention programme (www.ypfaceit.co.uk), developed at the Centre for Appearance Research (Bristol, UK). The programme has been designed to help young people (12-17 years) who struggle with appearance-related challenges due to congenital or acquired conditions affecting their appearance (such as craniofacial conditions, burns, skin conditions, birth marks, among many other conditions). The intervention has been developed to provide specialised advice, teach coping and social skills, hence strengthening psychological adjustment to a visible difference. The programme was developed in close collaboration with young people and clinical experts. Suitability, acceptability, and feasibility has been evaluated in the UK and in Norway. Ongoing projects are also testing the programme’s efficacy in the Netherlands, Australia, and the US.

The main objective of the current study is to evaluate and implement this new eHealth-based treatment method in Norway. The aim is to recruit approximately 160 young people with any appearance-altering condition, injury, or treatment side-effect, who also self-identify as experiencing appearance-related distress, teasing or bullying. Participants will be recruited into the study through health care services, user organisations, and the media.

The research team consists of strong collaborators nationally (University of Oslo and University of Bergen) and internationally (University of the West of England, Centre for Appearance Research). The project leader is Kristin Billaud Feragen (Clinical Psychologist, PhD, Research Coordinator at Centre for Rare Disorders).


Only applications submitted through Webcruiter will be evaluated. The application can be sent in English or Norwegian Language.
