We seek a highly motivated bioinformatician or biostatistician for a joint project with the Fraunhofer SCAI in Germany. The candidate should be experienced in the analysis of large-scale biomedical data, using statistical methods and machine learning, and bioscientific data processing and programming. The candidate will conduct integrative stratification analyses of biomedical data, focusing on molecular and clinical clinical data, and digital sensor or neuroimaging data for neurodegenerative diseases. This will include the review, set-up and application of software analysis pipelines, and the joint interpretation of disease-related data together with experimental and clinical collaborators. The project will use new biological high-throughput data from patients, healthy controls, as well as in-vitro and in-vivo disease models. With the help of statistics, machine learning and pathway- and network- and analyses, the goal is to improve the mechanistic understanding of disease-associated alterations in common neurological disorders.


Your Profile:

• The candidate will have a PhD or equivalent degree in biostatistics, bioinformatics or related subject areas
• Prior experience in large-scale data processing and statistics / machine learning is required
• A track record of previous publications in bioinformatics analysis of large-scale biological data (e.g. omics, clinical, structural bioinformatics, neuroimaging data) should be outlined in the CV
• Demonstrated skills and knowledge in next-generation sequencing data analysis, biostatistics, machine learning, pathway and network analysis are highly advantageous
• The candidate should have a cross-disciplinary aptitude, strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and a keen interest in collaborative biomedical research
• Fluency in oral and written English
