Two research positions in data management and bioinformatics of multi-Omics datr

Our interdisciplinary group on computational biology is offering two positions in

Data science and bioinformatics

 managing and analyzing multi-Omics data in two large consortia.

I. Within the CRC 1665 “Sexdiversity”,  we are seeing a candidate for the bioinformatics analysis and data management project.

The CRC investigates biological and cultural variants of sex development in a uniquely interdisciplinary approach uniting 27 principal investigators in 17 individual projects between life science, computational biology and the humanities.

II. Coordination of a nation-wide data activity for four BMBF-funded research consortia on “Colon-cancer with young adults”

The candidates will be responsible organizing, running and developing a data management solution  as a central hub
for storage and will provide and develop analysis solutions for the research data. Data entities include multi-Omics sequencing data, but also data from social sciences. The candidate will work in close interactions and with support from the central IT services from the University of Lübeck and the medical data integration center of the UKSH.

Your start in our team

Join our team and support us as soon as possible, starting with a two to three-year contract.

The successful candidates will further develop and implement data storage solutions, data annotations and will analyze Omics data for normalization and quality control.

Data will come from multiple-sources such as Whole Genome Analysis. single cell application, spatial transcriptomics, methylation analysis, imaging, videos, texts and others.

You will be developing metadata standards and requirements for quality control and data sharing according to the FAIR and CARE principles.

You should be familiar working with big data, data analysis and management in a Linux environment. Knowledge of life science data is a bonus, but extensive training on the job can be done.

  • A background in medical informatics, bioinformatics, data analysis or a related field. A Phd is a bonus, but not a must.
  • Knowledge and documented experience in working with life science data or data management
  • Familiar with UNIX/Linux server environments
  • Experience with data analysis 
  • Proficient in English and ability and communicate efficiently with collaborators.
  • Payment regarding pay group E13 TV-L (100%), if all requirements are fulfilled
