Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in a Medical Genomics Group of Matt Robinson at the Institute of Science and Technology, Austria. The positions are ideal for those with a statistics or computer science background who are looking to work on interesting statistical questions, with a view toward important medical research applications.
Our work focusses on developing statistical methods for large-scale medical genomic data.

433v1
and https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.09.04.20188441v1). We offer multiple possible projects related to these topics and the successful candidates may also shape their own research direction.
