Your salary will be based on TV-L

» Your tasks

In this Postdoctoral project, the successful bioinformatics applicant will develop more sophisticated methods for spatial reconstruction of single cell RNAseq data in conjunction with image-based guides of the same tissue and enhance and improve our bioinformatic workflow (CALINCA) to analyze the distribution and gradients of lncRNAs as well as other non-coding features across the tissue as part of the DFG-funded clinical research unit 329 on Disease Pathways in podocyte injury.

» Your Profile

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoc candidate who has a strong background in bioinformatics with a special interest in disease-oriented research employing multilayer omics-data.

» Our Offer

We offer a position in a third-party funded project with a duration of 3 years. As indicated above, the primary contract with the University Hospital Cologne would last 1.5 years. However, we will - from the beginning - aim to offer additional 1.5 years within the collaboration with the Dieterich Lab (University Heidelberg). The position itself will be primarily based in Cologne and – beside online conferences – be accompanied by regular visits to the Dieterich Lab in Heidelberg.

The successful candidate would work in an interdisciplinary team of basic researchers, computational biologist and clinician scientists. He/She will have the opportunity to learn new techniques in computational analysis as well as laboratory environments. We offer an excellent scientific infrastructure, strong integration into bioinformatics workflow and a vibrant community of research labs.

» Your future with us

Working at the University Hospital Cologne and the Medical Faculty means helping to shape the future - the future of medicine, of patients and, of course, your own future. You benefit from 59 clinics and institutes as well as numerous other departments and facilities and more than 10,000 jobs. The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Cologne and the University Hospital Cologne assume important social tasks in research, teaching and patient care. A close network with many university and non-university partners guarantees an internationally successful science and the excellent education of our students.

» Your future in detail
