RSG-Sweden

Computational · Biology · Community

RSG-Sweden is a non-profit organisation, for students and researchers from all backgrounds, with a goal to promote and increase knowledge of computational biology and bioinformatics across Sweden.

Our parent organisations are the International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB) and the ISCB Student Council.

About Us

Sweden's Computational Biology Organisation


RSG-Sweden was launched in February 2018, and it was first introduced at the Lund University. Our mission is to encourage more students and researchers to get interested in computational biology. By bringing people from life science and computer science areas, we aim to create opportunities for cross-disclipinary collaborations across Sweden.

Our collaborators


We aim to organise social and academic events through collaboration with research organisations (from both academia and industry) and other RSGs across Europe.

In addition, with our concept of branches, we encourage members to join us on our mission to increase visibility of computational biology and bioinformatics communities across Sweden. Find out how to set up a branch!

Join Sweden’s community of computational biologists!

To become a member, just sign-up on Slack (use your university e-mail address). Don't hesitate to introduce yourself!

We are looking for people to contribute to the following committees regardless of academic level and background. We appreciate a willingness and enthusiasm to learn and grow with our amazing team!

Web Committee

We maintain the website and collaborate with other committees to keep web content up-to-date. Interested in graphic design and web development? Join our team and let's brainstorm ideas.

Education Committee

One of the RSG-Sweden's goals is to foster a collaborative community where people can share education and training resources, and experiences. We aim to achieve our goal by organising workshops, hackathons, and seminars.

Outreach Committee

We promote events and come up with ideas on how to reach more people. You should definitely join us if you are interested in putting together science/tech-themed events.

Finance Committee

We plan and maintain the budget required for RSG-Sweden's events. Interested in giving a helping hand in the area of accounting and finding sponsors? Join us!

Become a branch of RSG-Sweden!

We encourage you to join our growing network of computational biology communities across Sweden. Establishing a branch at your university is a great way to connect with a wider community of people from different fields.

It's easy to get started:

  • Assemble a team of friends/colleagues with an interest in computational biology and bioinformatics. They can be from different academic backgrounds.

  • Make sure your branch team has: (i) a president, (ii) a secretary, and optionally (iii) finance chair, (iv) outreach, and (v) advisors. NB: only PIs and postdocs are eligible as advisors.

Interested in setting-up a branch at your university? Get in touch with us through Slack!

What's next?

We'll help you set up your first local events such as seminars or social meetups. For inspiration, you can check out activities from other branches and ISCB's Regional Student Groups!

Committee in Lund

Our branch is associated with the Lunds naturvetarkår (LUNA). Join to get involved as much as you like. No experience is required but willingness and enthusiasm to help grow our branch!

Note: Only primary positions and advisory team are listed here. We have several positions available, depends on where/how you would like to contribute :)
