Workshops in bioinformatics

The DKTK School of Oncology and the Heidelberg Center for Human Bioinformatics (HD-HuB) from the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) are offering bioinformatics workshops for researchers working with larger datasets of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data arising from patient tumor samples. The courses teach background knowledge on technologies used for data generation and for data analysis. Commonly used tools for data interpretation are presented and can be used in hands-on parts on provided data sets. For more detailed information and application click here.

Save the Date: Career Days 2021

Career Days are an initiative of the DKFZ PostDoc Network (PDN) supported by the Career Service. The aim is to provide scientists at our institute with insights on different career paths in specific fields. We invite alumni and other (postdoctoral) researchers to briefly share their personal career paths. Afterwards participants have ample time to join round table Q&A sessions.  An information booklet with career profiles and recent job offers are provided to all participants and stay available in our archive.

For the Career Days 2021 more information will follow soon.
