Your future in detail
In a collaborative project between the "Data science of bioimages" lab of Prof. Katarzyna Bozek at the University of Cologne and the "Cancer research and spatial biology" of Dr. Stefan Florian at the Charité University Hospital Berlin we are performing high-resolution and multidimensional imaging of cancer tissues in combination with deep learning-based image analysis. All imaging as well as image segmentation pipelines and protocols have been established in our labs. We are currently looking for a postdoctoral scholar to join this project and to take up a leading role in data generation and analysis on a large scale. The project offers unmatched opportunity to learn and apply state of the art imaging and image analysis techniques on a unique set of patient samples and work in a truly interdisciplinary environment composed of medical, experimental, and computational experts.
Both research groups are located in some of the largest medical campuses in Germany hosting cutting edge medical and translational science. The position offers a unique environment combining medical, experimental, and computational researchers.
