The German Cancer Research Center is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany.
With approximately 3,000 employees, we operate an extensive scientific program in the field of cancer research.
The Division of Regulatory Genomics and Cancer Evolution is seeking a
Computational Research Assistant
An advanced research assistant position in computational biology is available in the laboratory of Duncan Odom at the DKFZ's
research program in Structural and Functional Genomics. Over the next year, the Odom lab will be moving to Heidelberg from the
University of Cambridge. We are seeking a computational biologist to assist in moving our infrastructure and datasets from Cambridge,
and adapt and reinstall them operationally in the DKFZ. You will also carry out a range of research activities and organisational
duties in our dynamic and newly formed research group, and closely interact with collaborating bioinformatics groups in Heidelberg
We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated candidate who is excited about setting up a new laboratory focused on single-cell
and functional genomics, applied questions in organismal and cancer evolution. This post may require visiting or living abroad in Cambridge,
UK to work closely with Cambridge-employed Odom laboratory computational staff in order to facilitate required data transfers. Although this
position requires high computational competence, expertise, and enthusiasm, this position is not a primary research role; instead, this post
is an excellent opportunity for a computational research scientist to support the research portfolio of a cutting-edge genomics research
group in a staff role.
A strong knowledge of bioinformatics and computational biology is absolutely imperative.
MSc in computational biology, bioinformatics, or related field; PhD advantageous but not required
Fluency in Linux and with PostgreSQL is essential
Excellent knowledge of Python and Django is essential
Prior experience with microarray data or next generation sequencing data would be desireable
Requires excellent communication skills in English and German
Ability to keep good up-to-date records and write standard operating procedures
The position is limited to 2 years.
The position can in principle be part-time.
