We conduct genetic epidemiological studies for example on lung cancer within the framework of the International Lung Cancer Consortium and the OncoArray Network, on the longitudinal course of psychoses in the PsyCourse Network, as well as on haematopoietic stem cell therapy in cooperation with international partners.

Proficiency in genetic epidemiology will be advantageous though not specifically required. You will be expected to have the necessary advanced skills in relevant statistical analysis software packages (SAS, R). A sound knowledge of informatics is particularly helpful.
