Master thesis in single cell transcriptomics/computational biomedicine

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München is recognized as one of Europe's premier academic and research institutions. The Gene Center is a central scientific institution of the LMU located in the heart of its Life Science Campus in Großhadern/Martinsried.

The research group of Professor Johanna Klughammer at the Gene Center, LMU Munich, Germany, is looking for a

Master student or Master-level research intern (f/m/d) in single cell genomics/computational biomedicine

Our research

We are working towards improving our understanding of the regulatory landscape of cellular systems in health and disease across immunology, cancer biology, and evolution using high-dimensional molecular data (e.g. single cell and spatial transcriptomics, epigenomics). The analysis and integration of existing and new cutting-edge data sets, as well as the development of new computational tools to more efficiently and comprehensively leverage the ever-increasing wealth of data are a corner-stone of the lab’s efforts. Complementarily, we will be establishing and improving spatial-transcriptomics technologies towards the comprehensive spatio-molecular profiling of clinical samples and in vitro systems including organoids.
