Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V.
Through cutting-edge research in the fields of ENERGY, HEALTH and MATTER, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) solves some of the pressing societal and industrial challenges of our time. Join our 1.500 employees from more than 50 nations at one of our six research sites and help us moving research to the next level!
The Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) is a German-Polish research center for data-intensive digital systems research. CASUS was founded in 2019 in Görlitz and conducts digital interdisciplinary systems research in various fields such as earth systems research, systems biology and materials research.
Natural Language Processing has substantially improved deep learning on language and our understanding on linguistics due to unprecedented possibilities for text analysis. In a collaboration between the TU Dresden and CASUS we use transformer based deep learning algorithms that treat genomes as text. The project will encompass the training of task-agnostic language models and use these to extract language rules and biological meaning, such as how genome stability is encoded in the genome.
To strengthen our diverse team, we are looking for a
