Postdoctoral Reasearchers Call: FIMM, University of Helsinki

Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) is an international research institute focusing on human genomics and personalized medicine at the Helsinki Institute for Life Science of the University of Helsinki.

Work Areas: molecular medicine research and technology and biobanking infrastructures, promoting translational research, genome information in personalized health and medicine, individualized cancer medicine, and novel imaging-based biomedicine.


FIMM postdoc researchers benefit from the FIMMPOD professional developmental program, which aims to enhance research experiences and career opportunities. As part of a joint Nordic EMBL Partnership call for Postdoc Researchers, FIMMPOD is now seeking international candidates for two Postdoc Researcher positions.

Applications are sought in the areas of

  1. Computational systems medicine and
  2. Epigenetics of complex diseases and traits.

The Computational Systems Medicine group led by Tero Aittokallio focuses on developing and applying integrated computational-experimental approaches for the prediction of system-level phenotypic responses to genetic and chemical perturbations.

The current research topics include

  1. Machine learning modelling for drug response prediction,
  2. Identification of synthetic lethal interactions and drug combinations for anticancer treatment,
  3. Mining of clinical and molecular markers predictive of medical outcomes.

The Epigenetics of Complex Diseases and Traits research group led by Miina Ollikainen is focused on understanding epigenetic variation in complex traits and diseases, such as smoking, alcohol use, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. The research applies statistical epigenomics approaches utilizing genome-wide DNA methylation and histone modification data, genotype data, and the wealth of phenotypic data from the well-characterized Finnish Twin Cohort and large-scale population-based cohorts. This projects aim at assessing genetic and epigenetic alterations and their interaction with pertinent environmental or lifestyle exposures to obtain more precise estimates of their individual and joint effects on common disease risk.

Eligibility and Requirements

  1. PhD degree in a suitable field and be fluent in English.

Application Procedure

Applications are to be submitted by completing the online application form and submitting a CV and a cover letter as a single PDF file (max 5 pages) in English through the University of Helsinki electronic recruitment system must submit their applications through the SAP HR portal.
