Meyer at the BIMSB and MDC in Berlin is seeking to recruit a post-doctoral researcher in Bioinformatics. Our goal is to discover new mechanisms of transcriptome regulation in diverse biological settings with a particular emphasis on mechanisms involving RNA-structures or trans RNA-RNA interactions. To this end, we develop new computational methods and algorithms to analyze large-scale transcriptome data (e.g. RNA-seq). Our methods employ a variety of machine learning techniques and new probabilistic models. We work in close collaboration with several experimental research groups to investigate a diverse range of exciting biological systems.
