Doctoral Position in Computational Systems Immunology & DataSciences (f/m/d)
University of Konstanz
Doctoral Position in Computational Systems Immunology & Data
(part-time 80%, E 13 TV-L)
Reference number 2021/027. The start date is May 1st, 2021 or by agreement. The position is available
until January 31, 2023 with the aim for extension towards the finalization of your doctoral degree.
The University of Konstanz is one of the eleven Excellence Universities in Germany. Since 2007 it has been successful in the German Excellence
Initiative and its follow-up programme, the Excellence Strategy.
This position is an exciting opportunity for you, if you wish to develop strong data science skills and gain knowledge in molecular immunology by
conducting bioinformatics research towards a better understanding of immune cell identity and function. The position is available within the newly
established research group of Tenure Track Prof. Dr. Andreas Gruber, which has a focus on developing and applying data science approaches to
study gene expression regulation in health and disease (further information: https://gruber-sciencelab.netlify.app).
Amongst others, you will be using computational tools to analyze bulk as well as single-cell RNA sequencing data of immune cells aiming to study the
transcriptional programs that regulate isoform diversity observed across immune cell subpopulations. The results of your work will contribute to
current efforts to better understand the molecular mechanisms underlying immune cell function as well as immune cell-associated diseases, such as
auto-immune disorders, but also cancers. You will also have the opportunity to work on your own data science approaches / tools, as required, and
contribute to research collaborations of the lab. If you have some experience in programming and/or analyzing data and you would like to conduct a
doctoral thesis with a focus on data sciences and systems immunology, we are looking very much forward to your application!
