Position: Postdoctoral Fellow: Bioinformatician, Immunology
Institution: European Molecular Biology Laboratory
Location: Heidelberg, Baden‐Württemberg, Germany
Duties: Our project aims to achieve a deep understanding of immune-disease etiology by combining technologies, including single-cell transcriptomics, genomics, and CRISPR/Cas9. You will develop and apply computational methods to analyze large-scale functional genomics and single-cell transcriptomics datasets and to integrate and interpret data. This project will be strongly supported by a dedicated experimental scientist, along with our industry partners at GSK/Cellzome
Requirements: Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field with strong background in bioinformatics/biostatistics/computer-science. We especially ask for applications from candidates with previous experience in immunology and the analysis of large-scale genomics or single-cell transcriptomics datasets. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, creative, organized, and well-positioned to lead a scientific project at all stages. (S)he will work closely with our collaboration partners and wet lab scientists, and so excellent communication skills in oral and written English are highly desired

Why join us The proposed project will provide the successful applicant with a unique possibility to work at the intersection of academic and industrial research, acquiring deep experience in cutting-edge technologies and a highly relevant research area, and to build a strong network with our industry collaborators. What else you need to know EMBL, Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences, is an intergovernmental research institute with more than 80 independent research groups across six sites in Europe. The Steinmetz Lab works across two sites at EMBL Heidelberg and Stanford University and is one of the world’s leading labs in technology development for functional genomics, by combining experimental work and bioinformatics. Open Targets (www.opentargets.org) is a pioneering partnership between EMBL-EBI, GSK, the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Celgene, Sanofi, and Takeda, bringing together expertise of six complementary institutions. OpenTargets provides an R&D framework to improve the success rate for discovering new medicines, by generating evidence on the biological validity of therapeutic targets using genome-scale experiments and analysis.
