ZB MED - Information Centre for the Life Sciences (www.zbmed.de) has announced the establishment of a
Student assistant position - between 10 and 19 hours a week (m/w/d)
to work on the DFG funded projects „STELLA - An evaluation framework for Living Labs“ and “NFDI4DS - FAIR Virtual Research Environment for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence” at the earliest possible date until February 28, 2022 (with the possibility of extensions on individual basis) part-time. The successful applicant will join a team consisting of students mentored by senior software engineers and researchers for an initial period of 6 months. Scheduled work would be about 10 hours per week (up to 19 hours, if required). The student will be assigned to a selected development project, but will also interact with other students working on related projects. The team members take on dedicated development roles in the selected development project, but possibly also in other projects.
As an information infrastructure, the ZB MED is the central partner for the life sciences in Germany and Europe: from medicine and biodiversity to environmental protection. The institute emerged from a library. Building on its literature holdings and accesses, databases and research data, the ZB MED supports researchers in obtaining new information and findings - both locally in Cologne and Bonn and nationally.
ZB MED offers digital value-added services via the semantic-based search portal LIVIVO and the open-access publication portal PUBLISSO. A further focus is the teaching of information and data competence. ZB MED conducts its own application-oriented research using data science methods in the life sciences and aims to gain new insights and develop services for life science research. The Information Centre is a foundation under public law.
