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.

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 look for outstanding doctoral students from computer science and the life sciences. We accept direct applications and also participate in multiple graduate programs offered by the Life Science Zurich Graduate School of ETH Zürich and University of Zürich. We have exciting new projects on the boundaries of machine learning, medicine, and genomics. Come work in a team on projects that matter!

PostDoc in genomics

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in computational genomics and cancer genomics to join us in our endeavor to push the state-of-the-art in computational biology and address some of the major challenges arising in the integration and application of genomic data from cancer patients.  

Software Engineer for the development of scientific software (80 -100%)
