(TV-L E13 100%, limited for 3 years)
The Technische Universität Braunschweig, Division Data Science in Biomedicine of the Peter L. Reichertz Institute for Medical Informatics is looking for 2 scientists / doctoral candidates (m/f/d) as of 01.02.2022 or as soon as possible

 

The Technische Universität Braunschweig with almost 20,000 students and approx. 3,700 employees offers a broad spectrum of teaching and research with excellent facilities and a personal atmosphere. The Division Data Science in Biomedicine is looking for reinforcement for its young, interdisciplinary and international team to investigate the long-term consequences of infectious diseases using multiomics data and artificial intelligence in the context of systems medicine.

The Division Data Science in Biomedicine of the PLRI is part of the Department of Computer Science of the Carl-Friedrich-Gauß-Fakultät  of the TU Braunschweig and is affiliated with the Hannover Medical School. The team therefore has an excellent starting position for bridging the gap between computer science and medicine. The strong interdisciplinary character is further supported by the membership and the seat of the division in the Braunschweig Integrated Centre for Systems Biology (BRICS), which enables close contact with working groups from the life sciences.
