Qualification Details

We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong analytical and problem-solving skills, who are strong in written and oral communication (in English) and have documented experience in machine learning (in particular deep learning) and bioinformatics. Expertise in handling and understanding protein mass spectrometry data is an advantage, but not a requirement. The successful candidate will participate in independent research projects and assist in the supervision of undergraduate students.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The selected candidate will develop a proof-of-concept framework for detecting antibody-derived peptide signatures in proteomics datasets. More specifically, the research project entails the analysis of millions of B-cell receptor sequences by machine learning to determine disease-specific antibody peptides that can be detected in proteomics datasets. These peptides will be confirmed by extensively re-searching public and in-house proteomics data. This project will start with data from COVID-19 related studies as the main use case.
