Postdoc Opening in Machine Learning in Healthcare

Summary The University of Zurich together with the University Hospital of Zurich are embarking on a concerted effort to develop informatics programs to advance biomedical research and healthcare using cutting edge computational approaches. As part of these efforts, the newly created Chair of Medical Informatics will establish a research group that will investigate topics in clinical data science and translational bioinformatics, such as knowledge discovery from Big Data sources (Electronic Medical Record), development of Natural Language processing, information retrieval and extraction routines, as well as the analysis of human Omics data.

We are looking for Masters Students!

We are currently looking for Master’s students in the field of bioinformatics for the following topics Analyzing the effects of DNA secondary structure on the mutational pattern in cancer. The student will analyze the relationship between mutational patterns detected in various cancer types and the locations of non-B-DNA secondary structures in the human genome. The student should have basic experience with Unix systems and some experience with at least one scripting language (e.
