Duties primarily include teaching and research. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications.
The general focus of the Genome Informatics group is on developing and implementing methods for processing large sets of biological sequences and related information, like genome annotations or expression profiles. The research associate will do research on novel methods for comparing and annotating DNA and protein sequences, and apply these in a systems biology context.
Typical tasks of a research associate include writing scientific publications, and attending conferences and workshops to present the work. The position includes the responsibility to teach 4 hours/week in different interdisciplinary study programs, like the Master of Science program in Bioinformatics or the Bachelor of Science program in Computing in Science.
We are interested in a highly motivated person who is interested in working with us on cutting edge research in a pleasant working atmosphere.
A university degree in a relevant field. For example, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology or Computer Science. An academic degree like a master degree is required, a doctorate is desirable, but not conditional. Good knowledge of and experience with algorithms for processing biological sequencesis is required as well as excellent programming skills, ideally in C/C++ and Python. Knowledge of techniques from Machine Learning and/or Systems Biology is a plus. Fluent English, spoken and written, and good communication skills are mandatory. Knowledge of German is helpful; we expect the willingness to learn German for non-native German speakers.
