Helmholtz Zentrum München is a research center with the mission to discover personalized medical solutions for the prevention and therapy of environmentally triggered diseases and promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

At our institute you will find a scientifically stimulating international environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infrastructure you will have the opportunity to make an important contribution for a healthier society.

The Institute of Computational Biology is globally recognised for innovations in data analysis and modelling of biological systems and diseases, anchored at the Helmholtz Centre Munich and the Technical University Munich. The BMBF-funded e:Med junior consortium "CKDNapp - Chronic Kidney Disease Nephrologist's App" is an interdisciplinary team of computational biologists and physicians. The consortium is developing a clinical decision support software (CDSS) to assist the practicing nephrologist in personalized treatment of chronic kidney disease patients. To this end\, the consortium generates large-scale patient data\, develops novel bioinformatics algorithms\, and builds computational models of chronic kidney disease based on clinical and molecular data.

Your mission

We are looking for an independent project team leader in (Bio)Medical Informatics (f/m/x) who is responsible for the CKDNapp subproject “CKDNapp application and web service development”, which comprises the conceptual design and implementation of the CDSS CKDNapp. The team will be part of the Institute of Computational Biology, which is well recognized for innovations in data modelling and analysis and artificial intelligence, and will be embedded in the research group Systems Metabolomics (Kastenmüller Lab). The group focuses on the role of metabolism and metabolic individuality in the development and treatment of complex diseases and develops new strategies and easy-to-use resources for analyzing, integrating, and visualizing results derived from big molecular data sets (metabolites, proteins, genetic variants) in large epidemiological cohorts.

Your responsibilities

  • Lead the app development within CKDNapp
  • Plan and develop user experience (UI/UX) concepts suitable for the application in a clinical/outpatient environment
  • Develop cross-platform app for mobile devices (iOS/Android) and web
  • Present to the scientific community, i.e., by publishing in high-level journals and via presentations at international conferences
  • Interact closely with computational biologists and physicians in CKDNapp

Your qualifications

  • PhD in (Bio-)Medical Informatics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics or a related field
  • Strong programming skills
  • Experience in frontend/backend development for web applications (e.g., HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, PHP, SQL)
  • Experience in app development frameworks, e.g., React Native or Flutter-Skills in interdisciplinary, international team work
  • Fluency in English and German

Desirable qualifications

  • Experience in the design of clinical decision support systems
  • Experience in data modelling, integration and visualization of omics data
