Position: Doctoral researcher (PhD) in Computational Biology/Biostatistics (gn)
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: We seek a highly motivated computational biologist/bioinformatician (MSc level) who is experienced in the analysis of large-scale biomedical omics or neuroimaging data, using statistical methods and machine learning, and bioscientific data processing and programming. The candidate will conduct integrative machine learning analyses of biomedical data, focusing on molecular, neuroimaging and clinical data for neurodegenerative diseases. This will include the development of new structured machine learning approaches, the application of software to disease-related multimodal datasets, and the joint interpretation of the data together with experimental and clinical collaborators. The project will use new biological high-throughput data from patients, healthy controls, as well as in-vitro and in-vivo disease models. With the help of pathway-, network- and machine learning analyses, the goal is to improve the mechanistic understanding of molecular and cellular perturbations in common neurological disorders
Requirements: The candidate will have a MSc or equivalent degree in computational biology, bioinformatics, or biostatistics/machine learning; Prior experience in large-scale data processing and statistics/machine learning is required; A track record of previously completed courses and/or publications involving analyses of large-scale biological data (e.g. omics, neuroimaging data) should be outlined in the CV; Demonstrated skills and knowledge in next-generation sequencing data analysis, biostatistics, machine learning, pathway and network analysis are highly advantageous; The candidate should have a cross-disciplinary aptitude, strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and a keen interest in collaborative biomedical research; Fluency in oral and written English
