Data Manager for Clinical and Research Data

Bridging from the cellular to the organ scale, the Division “Systems Biology of Signal Transduction” aims at unraveling molecular mechanisms that regulate cell communication and cell decisions. A failure of these control mechanisms contributes to tumor development. Clinical mass spectrometry is combined with mechanism-based mathematical modeling to enable early detection and personalized treatment of cancer. For these developments the transition from chronic liver, lung and kidney diseases towards cancer are studied at multiple levels. The large data sets are exploited to develop digital strategies into real-world applications personalized for the individual patient with the goal to prevent tumor progression and improve quality of life.

To support our dynamic interdisciplinary team in a BMBF-funded project, we are looking for a data manager to start as soon as possible.
