Your mission

A particular focus will be on better understanding the human hematopoietic system in health and disease using quantitative insights from 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:

  • Joint embeddings of single-cell data from multi-omics, imaging, and FACS platforms.
  • Mathematical modeling of blood-cell dynamics.
  • Inference of gene-regulatory motifs and networks from multi-omics data.
  • Development of computational pipelines for clinical and diagnostic workflows.

Your qualifications

  • PhD in biology, bioinformatics, biomathematics, biophysics, or a related field.
  • Advanced expertise in the processing and interpretation of single-cell sequencing data.
  • 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.
