Starting date: as soon as possible
Duration: Initially 3 month; option of further extension

The division of Bioinformatics and Systems Cardiology at the Klaus Tschira Institute for Integrative Computational Cardiology develops software to study the causes of cardiac disorders (https://github.com/dieterich-lab). To accomplish this, we use methods from bioinformatics as well as from clinical data science and natural language processing (NLP).

Tasks

The successful applicant will enter a collaborative research environment and contribute to the group’s NLP portfolio. The successful applicant will work on noisy unstructured clinical data in German language, applying state-of-the-art NLP methods to extract clinical information.

Main tasks:

  • Preparation and curation of data sets for clinical information extraction tasks
  • Data cleaning and data preprocessing
  • Designing and performing NLP experiments using rule based and machine/deep learning based methods

Required Qualifications

  • BA/MA student of computational linguistics, computer science or comparable relevant background and level of expertise
  • Programming skills (Python, Java)
  • Experience using the Python data science and NLP stack
  • Experience in handling large-scale scientific data sets
  • Experience in agile development is a plus
  • Good spoken and written English is expected


Your technical expertise is complemented by essential soft skills, the ability to communicate and work in teams, flexibility and targeted action.
