  • Knowledge of back- and front-end web development.
  • Excellent writing and communication skills in Danish and English

Furthermore, the ideal candidate is motivated by interdisciplinary research collaboration, willing to learn new things, and want to contribute positively to a stimulating social and professional environment.

We offer

  • an exciting and challenging job in a dynamic, informal environment at a National Center of Excellence with dedicated, friendly colleagues.
  • the opportunity to put your personal mark on our data science environment and gain from exchange of knowledge and interdisciplinary exchanges with colleagues across the center.
  • depending on your interest and background, individual competence development and conduct of own research will be possible.
