Career Opportunities in the Biomedical Informatics Group
Our interdisciplinary research group develops and applies advanced methodology to mine large volumes of molecular and clinical data to understand and model mechanisms of molecular processes, diseases and treatment options.
Currently, this includes:
a) analyzing large cancer genomics data sets for new cancer-specific isoforms and mutations that influence RNA splicing,
b) developing methodology for summarizing electronic health records and model patient's health status,
c) performing association studies to connect molecular and clinical phenotypes with mutations.
The Biomedical Informatics Group welcomes applications for:
PostDoc in Machine Learning
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with a strong machine learning background to join us in our vision to push the state-of-the-art in machine learning and subsequently address challenges arising in biomedicine. You will work on foundational machine learning challenges, leading projects, and collaborating with other researchers.
Doctoral student positions
We are not actively searching for new doctoral students at the moment. If you are highly interested in our research and feel exceptionally well qualified we are looking forward to your application. You can apply directly or participate in multiple graduate programs offered by the Life Science Zurich Graduate School of ETH Zürich and University of Zürich.
Master student projects (ETH internal)
The lab accepts motivated master students to carry out their master thesis research in the group. We provide a list of currently open project proposals. Please read through the proposals and contact us if you are interested. (The link will only appear inside of ETH network.)
Opportunity for students: Google Summer of Code with Shogun
We are happy to announce that Shogun has been accepted for GSoC 2019. If you are a talented student who wants to spend a summer hacking C++, Machine Learning, open-source, and be paid $5400 (UK), make sure to apply! (Deadline: April 9, 2019)
