Job description

Assoiated with the european ELIXIR project. In Norway, the project is coordinated by the University of Bergen and includes the Universities in Oslo, Trondheim, Tromsø and Ås. On a national level we aim to:

  • to build a Norwegian Node in the pan-European research infrastructure ELIXIR (, with the Node delivering services and resources to the international community through ELIXIR on selected areas;
  • to continue a National help desk serving users a broader set of services and assistance; and
  • to provide an e-infrastructure allowing users to efficiently and safely store, share, analyse and publish their genomics scale data.
