Data scientist (m/f/div)
Our lab at the Deutsches Rheuma-Forschungszentrum Berlin (DRFZ), a Leibniz-Institute, performs immune profiling in chronic inflammatory diseases to aid efforts in precision medicine, and investigates B cell differentiation and plasma cell homeostasis, including works on their role in COVID-19. The lab maintains the DRFZ mass cytometry (CyTOF) facility, and is involved in many collaborative projects.
We are looking for a motivated and responsible scientist with a strong interest in advancing the understanding the pathogenesis, future diagnostics and treatment of rheumatic diseases and COVID-19, through the comparative analysis of normal vs. pathogenic immune responses.
You have a track record in the qualified application of computational tools to the analysis of single cell data, and you share our enthusiasm for the many facets of single cell data analysis.
Practical aspects comprise data curation and annotation up to FAIR standards, data analysis involving clustering and dimension reduction tools, statistical analysis, and integration of multiple data types, using R and/or other platforms.
You are a team player with excellent personal communication and data visualization skills to translate complex data into presentable and illustrative figures for scientific publications and presentations. Fluency in immunology and cytometry will be appreciated.
The DRFZ Berlin is an equal opportunity employer, and strongly encourages applications from all members of under-represented groups. Individuals with disabilities will be given priority, if qualified accordingly. Please send your application with CV and certificates by e-mail to Dr. Henrik Mei, firstname.lastname@example.org.
