We need an enthusiastic scientist to join our team in the development of integrated approaches for the analysis of heterogeneous data. A particular goal is the principled combination of knowledge from sequence analysis, heterogeneous databases, and in-house quantitative experimental results (e. g., metabolite profiles and gene expression data from microarrays or proteomics).
You will hold a PhD degree in a technical or scientific field and have experience in at least one of these three areas:
You will be responsible for the development of novel integrated approaches in the deep bioinformatics analysis of heterogeneous data sets, applying and adapting existing systems as well as developing novel components as needed. Solid skills and experience in software development under Unix (e. g., Matlab or R, C/C++ or Java, Perl or Python, Bash, …) are therefore required.
Besides collaborating with researchers from other domains in the group, established and novel analysis tools will be applied to the study of host–parasite interactions (Biogen biocontrol project). An interest in interdisciplinary work and excellent communication skills in English are therefore essential. (Working knowledge of German is a plus).
We offer internationally competitive conditions and benefits. The position is available immediately and has an initial tenure of three years. We look forward to receiving your application. Applications will be considered until the position has been filled and should be addressed to David Kreil. Please include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the names of three referees, who should be asked to send references to us directly. Feel free to please contact us if you have any questions.
