We are interested in biomarker profiles as risk factors for the development of type 2 diabetes and associated cardiometabolic traits. We work with high-density omics biomarker data (including lipidomics, genomics, epigenetics, and glycomics) in the EPIC-Potsdam study, a large-scale prospective cohort study. The main focus will be on the statistical analysis of these omics datasets, including the application and development of strategies to integrate such multi-omics data in the context of a prospective study on long-term risk of cardiometabolic diseases. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop his/her own research projects and to participate in national and international collaborations.
