Open Postdoc position - (bio)informatician, biochemist, molecular biologist, (bio)statistician (f,m,d) - TV-L E13, 100%
The Biomedical Informatics and Genetic Phenotype Redefinition of Phenotypes Research Group (Prof. Dr. rer. nat. David Ellinghaus), Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB), Kiel University (CAU) and University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), Kiel, Germany, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with background in statistical epidemiology and/or machine learning (ML) for genomic Big Data studies in biomedicine.
Our focus is on the application and development of new methods and software to create a new molecular genetic atlas for chronic inflammatory diseases and to achieve improved (re)classification of patients for personalized prevention, lifestyle or therapy recommendations.
We are closely associated with the Department of Computer Science of Kiel University, the Comprehensive Center for Inflammation Medicine (CCIM) and the DFG-funded Competence Centre for Genomic Analysis (CCGA) Kiel and are part of the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” (PMI). This collaboration has already resulted in over 100 mostly high-level publications with and by our working group.
