The new project group of Dr. Simon Anders at the Centre for Molecular Biology of the University of Heidelberg (ZMBH) is researching bioinformatics methodology for big data in molecular biology. We
develop novel statistical inference methods for various types of high-throughput sequencing assays, and novel tools for visual and interactive exploratory analysis of multi-omics data.
To build up our cross-disciplinary team, we are seeking a
junior scientist as PhD student
with expertise in computational science.
We are interested not only in bioinformaticians but also in scientists
from other quantitative fields, such as computer science, engineering,
mathematics, or physics.
The ideal candidate has passion for science, interest in molecular
biology, and strong skills in scientific software development or
quantitative data analysis or computational methods. Previous
expertise in working with molecular-biology or other high-dimensional
data would be of advantage. Fluency in written and spoken English and
interdisciplinary communication skills are a must.
We offer rewarding work in a stimulating research environment on
applied projects, in collaboration with basic biology as well as
clinical research groups, with access to all the resources and
expertises necessary for a PhD to form a strong start into your
For details on our group's projects, please see our web page or
contact Dr. Anders.
To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter describing your
expertise and research interests to S. Anders. If possible please also
include a "work sample" (e.g. a report on a homework or internship
project, or a link to a github repo) suitable to demonstrate your
coding or data analysis skills.
