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.
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.
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!
To become a member, just sign-up on Slack (use your university e-mail address). Don't hesitate to introduce yourself!
You are welcome to contribute to any/all of the committees regardless of your academic level and background. We don't ask for experience but willingness and enthusiasm to learn and grow with our amazing team!
We maintain the website and collaborate with other committtes to keep web content up-to-date. Interested in graphic designing and web development? Join our team and let's brainstorm ideas!
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. Let us know your ideas and/or if you know of any organisations for our future potential collaboration!
We organise events (and plan a fika menu!) and come up with ideas on how to get promotion done! You should definitely join us if you are interested in putting together science/tech-themed events.
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 our important committee!
With our aim to develop computational biology clubs and communities across Sweden, we encourage you to join our growing network! Establishing a branch at your university is a great way to connect with a wider community of people from different fields.
Interested in setting-up a branch at your university? Get in touch with us via Slack!
Organise local academic event (e.g. seminar) or a social meetup. For ideas and guide, have a chat with our branch teams on Slack! plus we recommend you to check out activities of other ISCB's Regional Student Groups!
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 :)
Are you based at Umeå University or SLU Umeå? Join our branch to get involved!
Are you based at Uppsala University or SLU Uppsala? Join our branch to get involved!
Are you based at a university in Stockholm? Join our Stockholm branch to get involved!
Interested in collaboration? or got ideas for events you'd like us to organise? Let us know via our social media or Slack!
If you'd like to promote your event on our website, send us promotion material at email@example.com
