  • Testing and maintenance of software solutions for integrative analysis
  • Development of novel computational methods for emerging technologies (e. g. single cell assays and long-read sequencing)
  • Help with experimental design and protocol optimization
  • Consultation and training of colleagues and software users

Your qualifications

  • Academic degree or equivalent experience in bioinformatics or related field (PhD is a plus)
  • strong programming skills (e. g. Linux, Python, R)
  • proven experience in software development, deployment and workflow tools (e. g. git, Docker, Slurm, Snakemake)
  • detailed unterstanding of OMICS technologies and Big Data analysis
  • solid background in statistical data analysis
  • flueny in English

We are looking for a motivated team player with strong communication skills and the desire to work in a dynamic environment. Prior experience in the field of immunobiology or epigenetics is a plus.
