Apply now! Bioinformatics Long-term Support, May 3, 2019

A new call for long-term bioinformatics support from the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) is open. This is an opportunity to get extensive support from a senior bioinformatician in your research project, free of charge. Application deadline is Friday May 3, 2019. Please see below for more information. 


One of the national services offered by NBIS/SciLifeLab is Bioinformatics Long-term support (a.k.a. WABI) in next generation sequencing and related omics. They offer a senior bioinformatician to work in your project for up to 500 hours. The support is fully subsidized and free of charge, but extensive hands-on involvement is required by the applying research groups. To apply for support, you need to submit a small application about your project. More information along with the application form is found at the online submission here:

Projects are selected based on their scientific quality. The deadline for the next round of applications to be reviewed by the national evaluation committee is FRIDAY MAY 3, 2019 (24:00)

1. Please note that the applications should be complemented with a Data Sheet, so that power, replicates, matching of samples and potential batch effects can be properly evaluated.
2. Please note that the involvement in the data analysis is explicitly stated, so that at least 50% working time devoted to data analysis over 12 months by a scientist in the group of the applicant (or co-applicant) is required for support.

Applications are welcome for projects
* anywhere in Sweden
* any type of NGS application as well as other large-scale omics
* any bioinformatics skills
Current and past projects are found here

The decision on what projects get support in this call will be taken within two months from the application deadline. Typically, about 5-10 projects are granted support in each application round. In addition to the regular projects, they also aim to grant support to an additional 1-3 projects with a clear focus on data integration, which can be subject to more extensive method development support. Beside scientific merits, these projects preferably combine multiple omics technologies and include methodological challenges of general interest.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Bioinformatics Long-term Support directly at bioinformatics_wabi@scilifelab.se. Also note that the NBIS platform provides bioinformatics support in several different tracks as outlined here:

Pär Engström, Björn Nystedt, Heads of Bioinformatics Long-term Support (WABI)
