Research Assistant - salary grade E 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen
part-time employment may be possible
The Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) at the TU Berlin (Prof. Klaus Robert Mueller) is looking for a scientist for an agility project in the field of machine learning and bioinformatics. The AP is carried out in close cooperation with the "Institute for Computational Cancer Biology" of Prof. Dr. Roland Schwarz, at the Cancer Research Center Cologne Essen, University Hospital Cologne, Germany.
The Schwarz group develops algorithms for investigating intratumoral heterogeneity and cancer evolution. Based on algorithms for the reconstruction of cancer evolution in the patient from somatic copy number aberrations (SCNAs) , a method for assigning SCNAs to individual parental haplotypes was recently developed and applied . The aim of this project is the development of a new algorithm for calling haplotype-specific copy number variants from single-cell strand-seq  data and for haplotyping of germline variants using machine learning methods.
