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. The applicant: We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious new team member with proven skills and a published track record in computational method development and machine learning and a keen interest in analyzing mechanisms of transcriptome regulation involving RNA structures or trans RNA-RNA interactions. The key attributes sought are: ability to work alone and as part of a team, excellent attention to detail, excellent problem solving skills, and the desire to learn and improve. Furthermore: proven ability to publish research in international, high-ranking research journals, excellent communication skills in English (orally and in writing), time management to deadlines, and ability to work in an international and multi-disciplinary, scientific environment. Requirements Essential requirements: - PhD in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or a related, quantitative field (Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Bioengineering) -- excellent skills in object-oriented programming (C++, Java) and R -- strong background in machine learning and computational method development - experience working in a Unix-based environment and with high-performance compute clusters -- ability to write, modify and document complex source code -- excellent communication skills in English (oral and written) - proven ability to communicate scientific ideas and research results -- keen interest in understanding transcriptome regulation - published track record in computational method development Desired requirements: prior experience analysing RNA-seq transcriptome data expertise in virology or microbiology The MDC is an equal opportunity employer and supports gender equality.
