The position is part of an academic-industrial cooperation project with Boehringer Ingelheim RCV (BI) dealing with data analysis in the field of the development of recombinant protein pharmaceuticals. During fermentation processes huge amounts of data are collected. This holds a significant potential to generate knowledge. However, traditional data analysis is time consuming, limited and not safe with regards to data integrity. Furthermore, raw data from various sources and scales are stored in different formats or places. At BI a LIMS system has been implemented and data from different sources (online, atline, offline, external) and different scales are collected in a central database.
The goal of this project is to expand data analysis know-how, capabilities and application of modern data science tools. The main research topics will be: I) Data alignment, II) Data analysis, and III) Data modelling.
You will get the chance to work in an industrial environment with highly relevant data under the supervision of TU Wien IBD as an academic partner.
Motivated PostDoc with a PhD in Biotechnology, Chemical or Biochemical Engineering, Chemistry, Bioprocess Engineering or similar with strong data analysis, process modelling background and sound knowledge in programming.
Dates and salary
The position is available from June 2018 and is scheduled for 3 years.
The salary is 3,711.10.- Euros gross per month.
