Position Overview:

Biomedical Researcher 

University biomedical researchers are usually young individuals who have recently gotten their degree in a biomedicine-related field and are looking to gain some research experience before moving on to earning another title. They tend to help their respective university department with day-to-day tasks and administration while working closely with professors on research projects. This involves gathering data from digital and analog sources, creating data reports, and communicating with the research project supervisor regularly. Anyone who has a passion for biomedicine, has great research skills, and is well-organized would be a good fit for this job. Being able to use tools to analyze data is oftentimes strongly recommended.

Company Overview:
University of Copenhagen

The University of Copenhagen is Denmark’s leading higher education institution. It has become well known for its modern approach to research and hands-on methods to teach students. The school is attended by over 35,000 students and employs almost 10,000 staffers, both academic and administrative, making it an environment full of vibrant, innovative people who will undoubtedly be a joy to work with. Employees are usually very well paid when taking into context the working conditions of this sector. Flexible hours and great benefits are also worth pointing out. Proficiency in Danish is not necessary, but it tends to help with fitting into the workplace.

How to write your own University Biomedical Researcher resume?

1. Convey your readiness to perform academic work

Once anyone starts in their university researcher position, they will likely come into contact with information that is not comprehensible to just anyone. It is therefore crucial that universities hire people who are able to understand, on a whim, what the data that they’ve collected means. 

A solid academic tends to be a good indicator of this as well as any relevant work experience. In light of that, make sure that you adequately list all relevant educational background and previous positions which you held. Be sure to add some description to each of them. Things like what exactly you did, how your work contributed to a project etc.

University Biomedical Researcher Resume Education Example

MSc. Molecular Biomedicine / University of Copenhagen (2016 – 06/2018)

  • MSc. Thesis: "Molecular and structural basis of histone H1 ubiquitylation in the DNA damage response." 

  • Supervisor: Niels Mailand

  • Weighted average: 11/12 (Thesis; 12)

Exchange programme / National University of Singapore (2014)

  • CM1131 Physical Chemistry

  • LSM3223 Immunology

  • LSM4226 Infection and Immunity

  • LSM4242 Protein Engineering

2. List which relevant tools you are proficient in using

Doing academic work and all that relates to it, like data science, requires people to be proficient in using tools specifically engineered for these purposes. This especially includes data analysis software. Make sure to indicate how proficient you are at using such tools in your resume, as it will tell universities how prepared you are to not just comprehend information, but also manipulate it into accessible formats and conduct different operations with it.

Other useful skills which definitely won’t go to waste on your resume are things like language proficiency. Maybe even provide evidence of your skills via listing achievements and awards which you may have been awarded.

University Biomedical Researcher Resume Skills Example


  • "English - Fluent"

  • "Danish - Native"

  • "German - Limited"


  • "R - Excellent"

  • "Python - Very Good"

  • "Perl - Good"

3. Attach recommendations from relevant contacts

This is something you should want to do with any job application, but it is especially important in the academic field. Being able to put forward recommendations from figures of authority who taught you or under whom you’ve worked signals that someone who has already managed to achieve a lot in the field sees potential in you. This means that other similar figures of authority (professors) will be more confident in taking you on to work on their projects. Because of the hierarchical structure of the academic sector, having a recommendation from a teacher with a “big name” can almost guarantee you a position in the world of higher education.
