We are seeking a highly motivated and dynamic consultant to help shape the IT landscape for research at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. You will be employed at the Center for Health Data Science and will work very closely with the Dean’s Office, UCPH-IT and academic staff at departments and centres.
The Center for Health Data Science (HeaDS) was launched in 2020 with the aim of strengthening data science research and use at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (SUND). The Center functions as a hub for research groups throughout the faculty to establish data science as a topic of research in its own right. The SUND DataLab within the Center provides data science support for all research groups at SUND and runs courses to improve the data science skills of the biomedical researchers. Our philosophy is a relaxed work environment driven by inspired and independent people.
With support from the faculty, we have created a new position with the aim of further qualifying and strengthening our understanding of and dialogue with the central IT department (UCPH-IT) about the academic staff’s research IT needs.
You will be an ambassador for and facilitator of increased use of available IT resources and best practices in data-driven research and be responsible for driving and coordinating research IT efforts in the health sciences area, including:

- Play an active role in relation to existing solutions and services (e.g., DEIC, ERDA, SIF, Computerome, LUMI, etc.).
- Be updated on research data management and regulations regarding sensitive health data handling and advising management and researchers on this.
You will be anchored at the HeaDS (https://heads.ku.dk/) with a very close collaborative relationship with UCPH-IT, the Dean’s Office and the academic environments at departments and centres.
The position is new, and you will be involved in defining and developing the scope and tasks.
You have a relevant academic degree, academic experience from working in a scientific environment and experience with or a strong interest in working with research IT in a university context. It will be an advantage if you have a PhD. Furthermore, you:
- Have basic insight into research infrastructure and data management with an overall understanding of e.g., server and storage solutions, HPC and Cloud solutions, DeiC and other national and international IT infrastructures.
