Independent Junior Group Leader (f/m/d) in Single Cell Approaches for Personalized Medicine
Berliner Institut für Gesundheitsforschung (BIG) - Berlin Institute of Health (BIH)
The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) is a biomedical research institution focusing on translational research and precision medicine.
BIH uses a systems medicine approach to develop innovative options for prediction, prevention and advanced therapies for progressive
diseases in order to improve patients' health and quality of life. To realize its innovative plans in translational research, BIH builds
on the strengths and expertise of its founding institutions Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular
Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC). The Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB), located in the center of Berlin,
is a strategic expansion of the MDC to establish major expertise in the field of Systems and Single Cell Biology.
In order to strengthen translational research within the dynamic field of single cell approaches and to give promising researchers
