Pre-doctoral research fellow, bioinformatics

Photo of some of the founding institutes of the international PhD programme As faculty members of an international PhD programme at the interface of basic science and applications in the fields of protein biotechnology, we can offer pre-doctoral fellowships in Bioinformatics as part of the programme.

In addition to general considerations for young researchers in our group, there are special programme activities as well as lectures and courses.

We require a university degree in a technical or scientific discipline at the M. Sc. level or equivalent. Research in this field builds on good statistical and software engineering skills. Candidates must hence be able to demonstrate previous coding experience (e. g., in R, C/C++ or Java, Perl or Python, Bash, …). The projects involve complex data sets and experience with bioinformatics data analysis is an advantage. The interdisciplinary nature of the group's work means that good communication skills in English are essential. (Working knowledge of German is a plus.)

Additional information and requirements are listed below and are specific for the offered research project:

  • Joint modelling of gene expression patterns and regulatory potential of genome sequence regions for sensitive process identification (read more)

To submit an application, please follow the instructions on the programme pages. The programme secretary will be happy to assist you with any questions about formal requirements and the application process. Applications will be accepted beginning in August.

Deadline: 30 September 2010
