The position is initially limited to three years with the possibility of extension. ImmunoSensation2 is a Cluster of Excellence funded by Germany’s Excellence Strategy at the University of Bonn. Its scientists are dedicated to investigating innate immunity beyond the boundaries of classical immunology. In a joint effort, immunologists, neurobiologists, systems biologists and mathematicians from the University of Bonn and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) of the Helmholtz Association aim to investigate how the status of the immune system, the metabolism and the nervous system connect in health and disease. ImmunoSensation2 is embedded in the outstanding research environment of the University of Bonn, the University Hospital and the DZNE.
Furthermore, ImmunoSensation2 is internationally connected and maintains research partnerships with Australia (Melbourne University), Japan (Osaka University, Waseda University, Kyoto University) and the Netherlands (Radboud University, Nijmegen). The announced position will be integrated into the Core Unit for Bioinformatics Data Analysis (CUBA) of the Medical Faculty at the University of Bonn, which provides quantitative and computational analyses, training and consultation for all members of the faculty. CUBA benefits from a shared computing infrastructure and exchange of expertise due to its embedding and liaison with the Institut für Medizinische Biometrie, Informatik und Epidemiologie (IMBIE) and the Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics (IGSB). It operates in close collaboration with other core units like the NGS, flow cytometry and mass spectrometry core. The unit aims to establish a platform for computational biology, to facilitate quantitative approaches and to share and offer validated methods, expertise and resources. These methods will continuously evolve according to the needs of collaborators and progress in science to provide state-of-the-art bioinformatics and data analyses.

We offer:

There is also a possibility to use the day care center

Supplementary benefits in the public sector (pension plan according to VBL)

Salary according to the German salary scale TV-L (EG 13)
