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.
