Open doctoral and postdoctoral positions in Research Training Group RTG 2624 "Biostatistical Methods for High-Dimensional Data in Toxicology"

The Research Training Group RTG 2624 "Biostatistical Methods for
High-Dimensional Data in Toxicology" with lead university TU Dortmund
University has openings for

10 doctoral students and 1 postdoc (Ref.-Nr. w01-21)

starting April 1st, 2021.

8 doctoral students and 1 postdoc will be located at TU Dortmund
University and 2 doctoral students at Heinrich Heine University
Düsseldorf. We explicitly note that applications of all sexes are welcome.

In the Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg), innovative
biostatistical methods for the analysis of high-dimensional data for
modelling and risk assessment in toxicology are developed and applied.
The three project areas are regression, prediction and integration.
Doctoral researchers acquire knowledge in toxicology and develop
statistical methods for pharmacological and environmental toxicology,
optimally exploiting the flood of high-dimensional complex molecular data.

An elaborate qualification programme is offered with courses in
statistics, biostatistics, data science, bioinformatics and toxicology,
in addition regular seminars, as well as talks and short courses from
visiting researchers.

Doctoral students will work in interdisciplinary projects, with joint
supervision by leading international experts from both statistics and
toxicology, at the institutions
- TU Dortmund University (lead university)
- Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf
- IfADo (Leibniz Research Centre for Working Environment and Human
Factors), Dortmund
- IUF (Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine), Düsseldorf

Your desired qualification is a master's degree in statistics,
biostatistics or in a related field (mathematics, bioinformatics,
computer science or epidemiology with significant share of statistics).
