Your responsibilities

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a keen interest in joining a multidisciplinary team to work on the processing, analysis, and modeling of state-of-the-art single-cell omics data.

A particular focus will be on better understanding single cell behavior in health and disease using quantitative insights from computer vision, mechanistic modeling, and ML approaches. In our various collaborations with clinical and industrial partners, we work on scientific questions and solutions with direct impact for healthcare and diagnostics. The position offers the exciting possibility to substantially contribute to and conceive future studies addressing the following aspects:

  • Implementation and application of the latest object segmentation and classification algorithms to single cells in 2D and 3D microscopic image data.
  • Morphological characterization and tracking of single cells over time.
  • Fate prediction of differentiating stem cells using latest neural network architectures.
  • Multi-model data integration.

Your qualifications

  • PhD in biology, bioinformatics, biomathematics, physics, or a related field.
  • Strong programming skills combined with a mathematical mindset.
  • Evidence of the ability to conduct high-quality research and produce publications in top-tier journals.
  • Experienced in addressing clinical and biomedical questions.
