Helm­holtz-Zen­trum für Infek­ti­ons­for­schung - Bio­in­for­ma­tik

Die Arbeits­gruppe “Bio­in­for­ma­tik der Infek­ti­ons­for­schung” erforscht mit com­pu­ter­ge­stütz­ten Tech­ni­ken das mensch­li­che Mikro­biom, virale und bak­te­ri­elle Patho­gene sowie mensch­li­che Zell­li­nien anhand von gro­ßen bio­lo­gi­schen und epi­de­mio­lo­gi­schen Daten­sät­zen.

Postdoc in Com­pu­ta­tional Bio­logy

Work­ing field:



The can­did­ate should have a PhD degree in bioin­form­at­ics, 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.

What we of­fer:

The goal of our pro­jects is the devel­op­ment of algorithms and com­puter-aided meth­ods for per­son­al­ized infec­tion medi­cine, par­tic­u­larly clin­ical metaom­ics, vac­cine and drug design, as well as devel­op­ment of core tech­no­lo­gies for meta- and other omics ana­lyses. The meth­ods that we develop make use of con­cepts from machine learn­ing, phylo­gen­et­ics and pop­u­la­tion genet­ics. The lab co-organ­izes the Crit­ical Assess­ment of Meta­gen­ome Inter­pret­a­tion chal­lenge, hosts the bioin­form­at­ics unit of the Ger­man Cen­ter for Infec­tion Research (, and is well con­nec­tedto local, national and inter­na­tional part­ners from medi­cine, bio­logy and com­puter sci­ence. The lab’s pro­jects offer plenty of oppor­tun­ity for an excel­lent bioin­form­at­ics postdoc to shine.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your elec­tronic applic­a­tion mater­i­als includ­ing a let­ter of motiv­a­tion, cur­riculum vitae, cop­ies of your most import­ant pub­lic­a­tions and addresses of two or three ref­er­ees refer­ring to code PD-BIFO/2020 to:
