Open announcement for additional NBIS services

NBIS (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden) is a distributed research infrastructure and the SciLifeLab Bioinformatics platform with support from the Swedish Research Council, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, SciLifeLab, and Swedish universities. NBIS provides bioinformatics support to life science researchers. NBIS is also the Swedish node in the European infrastructure for biological data ELIXIR.

Our current support, infrastructure and training services are listed at:

For the future development of NBIS, we hereby invite proposals for additional bioinformatics services that would be valuable for the national life science community. These will be funded for up to two years with possible extension. The service could be expertise or infrastructure component(s) or a combination of both.

The proposal should be brief, maximally 3 A4 pages, containing the following:

  1. A short description of the research area and the PI.
  2. A description or how the service will be implemented.
  3. A list of earlier service assignments (if applicable).
  4. In case some development is needed, specify deliverables clearly.
  5. An estimate of number of users that will utilise the service (including examples of potential user groups), and how much time is spent on each service project.
  6. Suggested total amount of work and if the proposed position is full-time or part-time (preferably at least 50%).
  7. A description of the scientific environment of the suggested location.
  8. Co-funding by the university or research group (at least 50%). NB: This co-funding is additional to the already decided university co-funding of NBIS.
  9. Other information of relevance.
