Barsnes defended his PhD in 2010. He has since been a postdoctoral fellow at Proteomics unit at UiB (PROBE). He is now employed as a researcher in Professor Helge Ræder’s research node (stem cell research), KG Jebsen Center for Diabetes Research. Harald Barsnes has so far led the development of a young discipline that relate bioinformatics analysis to proteomics. These are large-scale analysis of proteins by mass spectrometry which generate large amounts of data.

Barsnes is also a lecturer at EBI (European Bioinformatics Institute) ‘s Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics Hinxton, Oxford, UK. At University of Bergen he leads the annual national course in bioinformatics at the Proteomics Unit. Barsnes’ focus in the stem cell node is to manage the work related to the bioinformatic analyzes that are relevant in characterizing stem cells and cells derived from these stem cells.
