Department: Medical Epigenomics Lab
Duties: The lab is driven by the ideas of all its members. If you already have a project in mind, we would like to hear from you. If not, here are a few topics for inspiration: (i) Why is leukemia a disease of the elderly? Can we identify an “epigenetic clock” that counts down toward leukemia? What is wrong with this clock in those rare cases of childhood leukemia? (ii) Can we construct a blood cancer from scratch, by inducing only epigenetic defects? Which combination of pathways provides the minimum core of an epigenetic leukemia? (iii) How can we make epigenome data useful for personalized medicine? Every physician uses Google – can we build a “Google for the epigenome”?
Minimum Requirements: We are looking for highly motivated and academically outstanding candidates who want to pursue a scientific career in the field of computational and medical epigenomics. An ideal candidate would have a background in the computational sciences (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and some prior experience with collaborative research in high-throughput biology. We will also consider applicants with a background in molecular biology (including functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) who have strong quantitative skills and/or a research interest that would fit well with a systems medicine environment

Workload: 100%
Duties: The dynamic behavior of a linear time-invariant system is determined by the solutions of an eigenvalue problem. Dynamical systems are often subject to physical parameters with an important level of uncertainty. Application engineers then want to know how sensitive the system is with respect to these parameters, for example, how much a parameter may change without losing stability or a performance level. This leads us to eigenvalue problems with uncertainty. The question how the performance or robustness of the system can be optimized by a careful choice of design parameters or by active or passive control, leads us to eigenvalue optimization problems
Minimum Requirements: An ideal candidate has a master degree in computational/applied mathematics, or engineering, a strong interest in optimization, experience with algorithm development, and enthusiasm for the project. Proficiency in English is a requirement
