PhD Student in Computational Immunology

July 29, 2021


The group of Computational Immunology is part of the Immunomonitoring platform at the Frankfurt Cancer Institute located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, . We are interested in understanding the genetic basis for human immune system diversity, with a particular focus on cancer immunology. We develop computational tools for human immunology and collaborate with experimentalists and clinicians at the University Hospital Frankfurt and worldwide.

Research tasks:

  • Computational method development + collaborative research projects in the field of cancer immunology and immunotherapy
  • Analysis of different types of multi-omics data (single-cell sequencing, proteomics, multiplexed immunofluorescence images)
  • Analysis of adaptive immune receptor sequences (B cell and T cell receptors)


  • Master’s degree in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Biophysics or related field (or Biology + excellent programming skills)
  • Hands-on experience in programming with at least one scripting language, like Python or R
  • Strong interest in immunology or cancer biology

Skills/Abilities/Competencies required:

  • Ability to conduct independent research + enjoy working in an international and interdisciplinary environment
  • Fluency in English language
