PhD position in Data integration for key gene regulation events

In the field of “Bioinformatics Data integration for key gene regulation events” the research group of Professor Miguel Andrade offers the following PhD project:

Text and data mining to analyse the genomics literature

The goal of the project is to create novel text and data mining methods to automatically identify major and domain-specific discoveries in the biomedical literature. The size of the biomedical literature, which contains millions of articles, prevents from retrieving optimally such discoveries either manually or using existing services. Yet, their automatic retrieval may impact positively the work of many scientists by facilitating for example scientific writing, bibliographic searches, or peer reviews. A special focus will be to analyse the genomics literature for which examples of major discoveries could be found in relation for example to the human Genome project, the Encode project, or NGS technologies.

We offer

• The possibility to work on a cutting-edge project using state-of-the-art technology in a highly motivated research team
• A stimulating, diverse and international research environment
• Advanced training opportunities
• A fully funded PhD position

Required qualifications

• Master or Diploma
• Motivation to solve complex biological problems
• Excellent communication skills

Starting date: 1 March 2017 or later
Deadline for applications (exclusively online via web form):  10 November 2016
