Postdoc Positions in Computational Biology

The Department for Computational Biology of Infection Research Group at HZI is offering a postdoc position to work on topics in computational metagenomics and computational infection research.

The lab develops software and algorithms, co-organizes the Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation challenge (CAMI;, hosts the bioinformatics unit of the German centre for infection research ( and collaborates locally, nationally and internationally with biologists and medical experts from universities and research institutes. For instance, we recently characterized the root-associated microbiome in barley, developed taxonomic binning software, and software to study the evolution of influenza viruses from genomic and phenotypic data sets.  Related projects, as well as newly established collaborations, offer plenty of opportunity for an excellent bioinformatics postdoc to shine.

Requirements: The candidate should have a PhD degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science or statistics and a competitive publication record. A commitment to reproducible research, the ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary research field and very good programming skills are obligatory. Prior experience in meta’omics, infection research, statistical learning or with the analysis of NGS data sets is advantageous, but not required. Qualified applicants with a disability will be given preference. Qualified women are especially invited to apply.

Starting date:                   as soon as possible

Initial contract for 2 years with possible extensions depending on performance


Probation period:             6 months
