Open positions for PhD students and Postdocs within the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1371 in bioinformatics, medical informatics or computational biology (m/f/d) starting 01.02.2019

We are looking for skilled PhD students and Postdocs to contribute in building a central IT platform for gut microbiome research. On the medical informatics side, we seek expertise to build up a medical data integration platform that enables harmonization and analysis of sensitive data while adhering to data protection requirements. On the bioinformatics side, we seek expertise to build and integrate pipelines for systematic analysis of heterogeneous experimental data ranging from 16S ribosomal RNA to complex metabolome profiles. Moreover, we seek expertise for developing and integrating state-of-the-art statistical and network analysis methods into the platform. These methods will facilitate knowledge extraction, biomarker discovery and hypothesis generation for the CRC.
