PhD Position in a Framework for Meta Data Analysis and Interactive Exploration of large FAIR data sets: A Plant Phenotyping example (f/m/d)
Published(241 days ago)
Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbHJülich
As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields of information, energy, and bioeconomy. It focuses on varied tasks in the area of research management and utilizes large, often unique, scientific infrastructure. Come and work with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topics and disciplines at one of Europe's largest research centres.
The Helmholtz School for Data Science in Life, Earth and Energy (HDS-LEE) provides an interdisciplinary environment for educating the next generation of data scientists in close contact to domain-specific knowledge and research. All three domains – life & medical sciences, earth sciences, and energy systems/materials – are characterized by the generation of huge heterogeneously structured data sets which have to be evaluated in order to obtain a holistic understanding of very complex systems.
