We are moving to the University of Munich (LMU) in September 2016. The lab will be embedded in the stimulating, interdisciplinary environment of the Graduate School for Quantitative Biosciences Munich (QBM), which integrates approaches ranging from bioinformatics and theoretical biophysics to biochemistry, molecular systems biology, and synthetic biology. The lab will be housed in the new Research Center for Molecular Biosystems (BioSysM) at the life sciences campus Grosshadern/Martinsried.
We are recruiting graduate students in Computational Genomics, to start in fall 2016. The successful applicant will develop and engineer efficient algorithms for analyzing biological high-throughput sequencing data. Supporting the lab's agenda, the successful candidate will employ tools and techniques from combinatorial optimization and machine learning to leverage large numbers of publicly available data sets. Translated into scalable and usable software, they will facilitate the systematic exploration of important biological or biomedical questions, such as the functional impact of alternative splicing.
