The interdisciplinary research center TranslaTUM at the Technical University of Munich in Germany is looking for a
Postdoc/PhD in single-cell Bioinformatics
Single-cell technologies have recently gained tremendous popularity with a big impact on understanding the pathogenesis of diseases and the design of targeted therapies. Analyzing high-dimensional single-cell data has its own statistical and computational challenges, and standard tools often cannot be applied. The purpose of the position and goal of the project is to develop and apply bioinformatic tools for the analysis of high-dimensional immunological data sets. Our laboratory (Zielinski lab) focusses on human T cell regulation in health and disease. We are currently deciphering the heterogeneity and regulation of tissue resident T cells at single cell resolution in human peripheral tissues.
