Helmholtz-Zentrum für Infektionsforschung - Bioinformatik
Die Arbeitsgruppe “Bioinformatik der Infektionsforschung” erforscht mit computergestützten Techniken das menschliche Mikrobiom, virale und bakterielle Pathogene sowie menschliche Zelllinien anhand von großen biologischen und epidemiologischen Datensätzen.
Postdoc in Computational Biology
The candidate should have a PhD degree in bioinformatics, machine learning, biomathematics, computer science, statistics or similar and a competitive publication record. A commitment to reproducible research, the ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary research field and very good programming skills are obligatory. Prior experience in meta’omics, infection research, statistical learning or with the analysis of NGS data sets is advantageous, but not required.
What we offer:
The goal of our projects is the development of algorithms and computer-aided methods for personalized infection medicine, particularly clinical metaomics, vaccine and drug design, as well as development of core technologies for meta- and other omics analyses. The methods that we develop make use of concepts from machine learning, phylogenetics and population genetics. The lab co-organizes the Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation challenge, hosts the bioinformatics unit of the German Center for Infection Research (https://www.dzif.de), and is well connectedto local, national and international partners from medicine, biology and computer science. The lab’s projects offer plenty of opportunity for an excellent bioinformatics postdoc to shine.
