We are looking for several research assistants (Ph.D./PostDoc) for

bioinformatics research and teaching at the Chair of Practical

Informatics and Bioinformatics, Department of Informatics, Faculty of

Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics.

 

Successful candidates can work towards doctorates and habilitations in

all areas of bioinformatics and can participate in research projects of

the institute. Our research focus is on the development of new

innovative and practically applicable algorithmic methods for relevant

bioinformatics problem. Our methods comprise efficient algorithms and

data structures, data and text mining, approximation and optimization,

machine learning, big data, data science and artificial intelligence. We

also work on the use of biotechnological methods for information

storage/processing and novel DNA computers.

 

Staff scientists support teaching in the bachelor and master programmes

in bioinformatics, which are offered jointly by LMU and TU Munich.

 

Requirements: Completed university degree in bioinformatics. Related

fields of study  (computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics,

biology/biochemistry) might also qualify. Experience in university

teaching is advantageous.

 

We expect enthusiasm for teaching and the best methods to solve problems

in bioinformatics.

Enthusiasm for teaching means active participation in the various

courses of the chair: basic and master lectures in bioinformatics,

bioinformatics (programming) practical courses in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th

and 7th semester, participation in seminars, supervision of

bachelor/master theses and of student assistants.

Enthusiasm for the best methods means high self-motivation to publish

new methods in computer science in competitive journals and conferences

in bioinformatics.
