Char­ité - Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin - Ber­lin Insti­tute of Health (BIH)

The mis­sion of the Ber­lin Insti­tute of Health (BIH) is med­ical trans­la­tion: trans­fer­ring bio­med­ical research find­ings into novel approaches to per­son­al­ized pre­dic­tion, pre­ven­tion, dia­gnostics and ther­apy and, con­versely, using clin­ical obser­va­tions to develop new research ideas. The aim is to deliver rel­ev­ant med­ical bene­fits to patients and the pop­u­la­tion at large. The BIH is also com­mit­ted to estab­lish­ing a com­pre­hens­ive trans­la­tional eco­sys­tem as trans­la­tional research area at Char­ité – one that places emphasis on a sys­tem-wide under­stand­ing of health and dis­ease and that pro­motes change in the bio­med­ical research cul­ture. The BIH is fun­ded 90 per­cent by the Fed­eral Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Research (BMBF) and 10 per­cent by the State of Ber­lin. The two found­ing insti­tu­tions, Char­ité – Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin and Max Del­brück Cen­ter for Molecu­lar Medi­cine in the Helm­holtz Asso­ci­ation (MDC), were inde­pend­ent mem­ber entit­ies within the BIH until 2020. As of 2021, the BIH has been integ­rated into Char­ité as the so-called third pil­lar; the MDC is priv­ileged part­ner of the BIH.

The Intel­li­gent Ima­ging research group at the Digital Health Cen­ter, headed by Prof. Chris­tian Con­rad, devel­ops and applies innov­at­ive deep learn­ing work­flows to trans­la­tional research with a focus on micro­scopy and spa­tial trancrip­tom­ics. This includes ver­sat­ile high-through­put ima­ging and integ­rat­ive com­puter vis­ion for per­son­al­ized med­ical research. Our lab provides a highly mul­tidiscip­lin­ary research envir­on­ment and unique expert­ise across ima­ging, single cell gen­om­ics, deep learn­ing and com­puter vis­ion. There­fore, we are look­ing for a pas­sion­ated PostDoc who is motiv­ated to closely inter­act with our team trained in medi­cine, bio­logy, bioin­form­at­ics and phys­ics.

PostDoc – Spa­tial Tran­scrip­tom­ics


Working field:

  • Primar­ily under­take and pub­lish sci­entific research,
  • Inter­act­ing with the clin­ical man­age­ment and part­ners from patho­logy and gen­om­ics at Char­ité and external part­ners,
  • Integ­rate and ana­lyze tran­scrip­tome NGS and ima­ging high-through­put data, also in com­bin­a­tion and
  • Devel­op­ment and imple­ment­a­tion of novel com­pu­ta­tional meth­ods that aid gen­om­ics based dia­gnostics and pro­gnosis


  • Can­did­ate with PhD in phys­ics, bioin­form­at­ics, gen­om­ics, com­puter sci­ence, medi­cine or sim­ilar,
  • Basic know­ledge of micro­scopy or pro­gram­ming (Tensor­Flow, Python, R, JavaS­cript or sim­ilar script­ing) are pref­ered, but not a pre­requis­ite,
  • Exper­i­ence with NGS data pro­cessing and ana­lysis are desired,
  • Ambi­tious, self-driven with the goal to build a sci­entific career in mul­tidiscip­lin­ary clincal data sci­ence

What we offer:

  • Var­ied activ­ity in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary reser­ach envir­on­ment,
  • Remu­ner­a­tion accord­ing to E13 TVöD VKA-K: The group­ing takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the qual­i­fic­a­tions and the per­sonal cir­cum­stances of the can­did­ate,
  • A full-time pos­i­tion (39h/week),
  • Appoint­ment dur­a­tion: 3 years,
  • Fam­ily-friendly, flex­ible work­ing time ensures bet­ter recon­cili­ation of work and private life

How to apply:

We live diversity !
Female can­did­ates are expressly invited to sub­mit their applic­a­tion. Severely dis­abled applic­ants with equal qual­i­fic­a­tion will be given par­tic­u­lar con­sid­er­a­tion.

Applic­a­tions should be sub­mit­ted by email to until 29.11.2021 indic­at­ing ref­er­ence num­ber BIH-48.21.
