We are developing tools, methods and infrastructure applications to integrate and interpret different types of Omics data and are applying these in the context of oncological research and medical application. The project is closely interacting with the company geneXplain (http://www.genexplain.com). The ideal candidate should have a background in computer science, bioinformatics or applied statistics and ideally also have initial experience with applications on high-dimensional data (Microarray or Next-Generation Sequencing) in medicine or biology. Previous experience with the statistical computing environment of R/Bioconductor would be beneficial. Good knowledge in Linux and with scripting languages are required.
