Full Stack LIMS developer offer2019-07-24 job posting


Multiple positions for PhDs and postdocs are available immediately at the Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics of Medical School University Bonn. In addtion, also Core Facility for Bioformatics Analysis CUBA is always looking for motivated new members.  

The goal of the IGSB is to improve health care by applying artificial intelligence in the analysis of biomedical data. We design, implement and evaluate methods and tools that leverage the knowledge and cognitive skills of investigators in order to enable the interpretation of massively heterogeneous data sets that integrate genomic and clinical information.

All of our research projects are highly interdisciplinary and are being conducted in close cooperation with computational or experimental domain experts providing an excellent opportunity for collaborative research.

Our institute is situated on Venusberg, the Campus of the Medical School Bonn and is part of a vibrant community of scientists, physicians, and engineers, whose goal is to advance the boundaries of knowledge. The institute has recently been founded to lead development of computational and informatics techniques to address pertinent challenges in modern biological sciences and medicine. PhD candidates will be enrolled in the Bonn International Graduate School, BIGS.

Responsibilities of postdocs

The postdoctoral fellows will be responsible for applying novel methodologies to analyze biomedical big data sets, including genomic and imaging data. There is a focus on collaborative projects with other research institutes such as the Departments of Human Genetics and Immunology, or the DZNE. Other responsibilities include day-to-day project management, including coordination with collaborators and other team members, as well as the writing of manuscripts. Contribution to the grant writing efforts of the lab are expected.

Basic Requirements

Postdoc Candidates must have a PhD degree in a quantitative field such as bioinformatics, computer science, physics, or related fields and a track-record of publication in the top journals or conferences of their field. Hands-on experience with management, analysis, and visualization of biomedical data is required for this position. Excellent programming skills and working knowledge of state-of-the-art software development techniques are essential. The candidates interested in these positions must be highly motivated, willing to learn and demonstrate initiative in assigned tasks. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are crucial.

Additional Requirements

Experience with Python, R, machine-learning and cloud computing are desirable. Previous research experience in areas such as medical genomics and immunology will be beneficial. Experience in developing (web-based) interactive software tools are a plus.

How to Apply

Candidates should submit their CV, a research statement, PDFs of their three best papers, and contact information for three references to pkrawitz at with [PhD] or [PostDoc] in the subject. Alternatively, for staff scientists in [CUBA] please approach buness at

The position is full time and for a period of two years due to a project with the possibility of an extension. The position can be filled at the earliest possible date.

The Core Unit for Bioinformatics at the Medical Faculty of the University of Bonn provides quantitative and computational analyses, training and consultation. Its tasks include supporting research groups at the Bonn site and throughout Germany within the framework of the West German Genome Center (WGGC), which is one of the four DFG-funded next generation sequencing centres of excellence in Germany. CUBA also provides services within the framework of genetic diagnostics at the Institute of Human Genetics. CUBA benefits from a shared computing infrastructure and exchange of expertise due to its embedding and collaboration with the Institute for Medical Biometry, Informatics und Epidemiology (IMBIE), the Institute for Genomic Statistics and Bioinformatics (IGSB), the Institute for Human Genetics and the HPC/A-LAB of University Bonn.

Your tasks:

  • Analysis and processing of high-volume data such as next-generation sequencing data (NGS) like whole-genome or exome sequencing data (WGS, WES)
  • Design, development, maintenance and execution of workflows and tools for the analysis and quality control
  • Working in a motivated team of colleagues from bioinformatics, computational statistics, physics etc.
  • Devoloping and provisioning of computational infrastructure (tools, databases)
  • Training, consultancy and documentation

Your profile:

  • Master or PhD in Bioinformatics, Mathematics, Computer Science or any related field
  • Strong expertise in the analysis of NGS data such as germline or somatic variant calling

  • Experience with HPC, GPU computing, cloud environments and containers
  • Knowledge of genetics and biology is considered a plus
  • Good communication and presentation skills
  • Knowledge of English and German, fluent in at least one

We offer:

  • The salary will be according to the German salary scale TV-L (EG 13)
  • A “Jobticket” (subsidized public transport) is available
  • There is also a possibility to use the day care center
  • Supplementary benefits in the public sector (pension plan according to VBL)
