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
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
