Job announcement No. 62/2019
The Department of Computational Biology for Infection Research at the
Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) is looking for a highly motivated
Postdoc in Computational Biology (f,m,d)
The Department of Computational Biology for Infection Research at the HZI, led by Prof Dr Alice C. McHardy, is looking for excellent postdocs in computational biology or bioinformatics.
The goal of our projects is the development of algorithms and computer-aided methods to analyze (meta)-omics data of the human microbiome, viral and bacterial pathogens, and human cell
lineages within individual patients, to further personalize medicine in infection research. The methods that we employ or develop in our research are related to the fields of machine
learning, phylogenetics and population genetics-. The lab co-organizes the Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation challenge (CAMI; Sczyrba et al., Nature Methods 2017), hosts
the bioinformatics unit of the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF; https://www.dzif.de), is part of the new German excellence cluster RESIST
(www.dfg.de) and a priority programme
on CRISPR-Cas (https://gepris.dfg.de/gepris/projekt/405892038) and collaborates locally, nationally and internationally with biologists and medical experts. The lab's projects offer
plenty of opportunity for an excellent bioinformatics postdoc to shine.
Requirements: The candidate should have a PhD degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, machine learning, biomathematics, computer science, statistics
or similar and a competitive publication record. A commitment to reproducible research, the ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary research field and very good programming
skills are obligatory. Prior experience in meta'omics, infection research, statistical learning or with the analysis of NGS data sets is advantageous, but not required.
as soon as possible
initial contract for 2 years
Qualified applicants with a disability will be given preference. Qualified women are especially invited to apply. The position is suitable for part-time employment.
The department is part of the Helmholtz Center for Infection Research (http://www.helmholtz-hzi.de/), the Braunschweig Integrated Center for System Biology (BRICS)
and Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. Braunschweig is a city with a high density of scientific institutions, many parks and recreational areas and about
250.000 residents. It is centrally located within Germany, with shorter train travel times (30 min, 90 min) to Hannover and Berlin. Contact for questions: Prof. Alice
