The candidate will

  1. Develop new analytical methods for longitudinal microbiome data analysis which explicitly model dependency structures among microbial features (e.g. the phylogenetic tree reflecting species relationships)
  2. Analyze metagenomics data sets from clinical microbiome studies in a team with other researchers from the Zeller Team and collaborating groups, capitalizing on her/his in-depth understanding of the methodologies in order to gain a better understanding of microbiome-host interactions (co-metabolism) and their bearing on host health and disease;
  3. Interact and collaborate with other scientists and bioinformaticians to tightly integrate microbiome and molecular and clinical host data into disease models.
