What has changed from your call in October (PhD student positions in the areas of Bioinformatics, Computer Science and Biostatistics and January (PhD student positions in the areas of Bioinformatics, Computer Science and Biostatistics)? I see the same description each time. Is the project the same?

Dear Lluís,

thanks for the question!

Indeed, the bigger third-party funded projects remain the same - the project plan just means we receive further positions during the run-time of the project.

From our view the requirements to possible PhD students did not change, in general we are looking for R-loving (bio)informaticians who want to use and increase their skill set in clinical research.


Hope I was able to answer your question!


Best wishes,
