Open Positions

We are always looking for skilled coworkers at the Institute of Bioinformatics at University Medicine Greifswald. We encourage anyone to apply who is currently involved or is highly motivated to get involved in research in systems biology, bioinformatics, machine learning, statistics and mathematical modeling applied to questions from molecular biology and medicine. As a successful group of interdisciplinary scientists, we are open to applicants with diverse backgrounds.

Please note also open positions in our partner group with Prof. Mario Stanke (Bioinformatics at Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science), here.

1 Postdoc Bioinformatics / Systems Biology   (Mar 8, 2018)

We are looking for a Postdoc to strengthen our research efforts in bioinformatics and computational systems biology. The position can be assigned to any of the research projects ongoing in our group, or can be used to establish a novel topic in the group.

Applicants should have a background in systems biology, (bio)informatics, mathematics, physics, or related disciplines, ideally already with experience in biological applications. Good background knowledge in one or more of OMICS data analysis, machine learning, mathematical modeling, dynamical systems and / or biostatistics is advantageous. The successful candidate will establish his or her own research program within the area of interest of the group. We expect the applicant to be willing to collaborate closely with experimental partners in house, and we offer an interdisciplinary environment in an exciting research area.

We are an international, young team, and offer an interdisciplinary working environment in an exciting and booming research area. Additional information on ongoing research in the group is available from our webpage at http://www.kaderali.org/research.html.

The position is available initially for 2 years, with the possibility of extension. Payment is according to the German E13 scale (full position). Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Candidates interested in applying may contact Lars Kaderali (lars.kaderali{at}uni-greifswald.de) for additional information. Full applications should include a

and should preferentially be sent by email as one large pdf file.

1 Postdoct, Coinfections and Host-Pathogen Interactions   (Mar 8, 2018)

We have an opening for a postoc in Bioinformatics / Systems Biology of Host-Pathogen Interactions. The position is part of the KoInfekt research program, funded by the Excellence Initiative Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The successful applicant will employ bioinformatics methods to characterize viral and bacterial coinfections, based on experimental data provided by our project partners at the University of Greifswald, University Hospital Greifswald, and the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute for Infection Research at Riems.

We are looking for an applicant with a solid background in applied Bioinformatics / Computational Systems Biology and related fields. Candidates are expected to be willing to closely collaborate with the experimental groups involved in KoInfekt; prior experience in analyzing high-throughput (OMICs) data is an advantage. Areas of interest for KoInfekt include mathematical modeling of host-pathogen interactions, systems biology / network bioinformatics, machine learning applied to high-throughput data, and network reconstruction from experimental data.

We are an international, young team, and offer an interdisciplinary working environment in an exciting and booming research area. Additional information on ongoing research in the group is available from our webpage at http://www.kaderali.org/research.html.

The position is available immediately, with a fixed term contract until December 2020, with the option of further prolongation. Salary is according to the German E13 scale (full position).
