We are recruiting postdocs


We are currently recruiting post-docs starting any time now. We do research in Bioinformatics and develop our own computational methods and algorithms to tackle biologically interesting question, typically by studying large-scale data set as they emerge using state-of-the-art technologies. We work on Linux machines and a high-performance computer cluster.

We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have:

  • a PhD in quantitative data analyses and/or algorithm and software development (e.g. in physics, bioinformatics, computer science, math, chemistry, statistics)
  • strong programming skills (C++, Java)
  • experience working under Linux
  • strong analytical skills and sound background in statistics
  • interest or, ideally track record, analysing high-throughput data sets
  • strong interest in investigating biological systems
  • very good written and oral communication skills in English
  • interest in working with researchers on an international and interdisciplinary research campus
