PhD Position in Biomedical Data Analysis at the University of Basel, Switzerland
Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Biomedical Data Analysis Group at
the Department of Computer Science of the University of Basel.
The open position is part of the “SINERGIA”-research project “Emotional Memory in
Health and Disease” funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
This interdisciplinary research effort aims at identifying the molecular genetic basis of
emotional memory by combining experimental, clinical, and computational approaches.
The position involves development of computational methods for genome-wide
association studies, statistical analysis of gene interactions, computational modeling of
disease-related gene regulatory pathways, as well as data integration and human-mouse
comparative data analysis.
Successful applicants have a profound knowledge in mathematical modeling and in
algorithmics. Furthermore, the project requires substantial programming skills and a
genuine interest in computational biology. Candidates are expected to engage in
interdisciplinary research groups and to foster collaborations with clinicians and
A prerequisite is a Masters degree in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Mathematics or
