Job Description

The tumor-immunology research group is seeking a highly motivated researcher for our team at the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) of the University Hospital in Basel/Switzerland. We are looking for a bioinformatician or computer scientist with a focus on AI to analyze high-throughput genomics and transcriptomics data emerging from our immunology studies and clinical trials (e.g. Schultheiß et al., Immunity, 2020; Stein et al., JAMA Oncology, 2022).

Your position
The successful candidate will analyze high throughput data from next-generation sequencing (including bulk and single-cell experiments). A repository of immunosequencing data will be used to detect disease-specific and anti-tumor immune signatures using machine learning. You will work in close collaboration with the DBM Bioinformatics Core Facility.
