The group of Prof. Marcel Schulz  is looking to fill the position of two Phd students (E13 TV-G-U, 65%) to start as early as possible at the Computational Epigenomics & Systems Cardiology group at the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Center for Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt (

Exact payment is based on previous research experience according to the work laws of Goethe University (TV-G-U).


We offer a Phd position for method development for integrative analysis methods targeted for analysis of single cell assays that are conducted with multiple assays simultaneously, for example RNA-seq and DNA methylation or ATAC-seq. Another position is about method development of novel approaches for the prediction of gene expression. Different approaches from Machine Learning should be tested and novel approaches for the interpretability of complex non-linear methods or Deep Learning based approaches should be developed to unravel gene-specific regulatory codes from a large catalogoue of epigenomics data.


·       Masters degree in Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, Computer Science or a related discipline

·       good programming skills

·       experience in the application of machine learning methods is advantageous

·       experience in the analysis of sequencing data is advantageous

·       we are working in an interdisciplinary team and are looking for people with good organizational and communication skills, as well as high creativity to address novel research problems

·       good knowledge of the English language
