Postdoctoral Researcher: Chemical Data Analysis for Health and Disease


Offered by:

Radboud University Nijmegen

Research / Academic


Hospital laboratories generate vast amounts of data, which may be supplemented by data from several ‘wearable’ sensors. This data may give a comprehensive readout on ailments, diseases or other problems a patient may suffer from. Contemporary ‘omics’ data may provide unprecedented insight into the mechanisms underlying disease progression, while appropriate pre-processing, integration and quantitative analysis of all available data may enable continuous, untargeted monitoring for health problems. You will develop methods for using high-frequency omics data for such a purpose.
