Job ID191267BRPosition TitleMaster Student BioinformaticsDivisionNIBRBusiness UnitResearch EuropeCountrySwitzerlandWork LocationBaselCompany/Legal EntityNovartis Pharma AGFunctional AreaInterns/Students on Novartis PayrollJob TypeFull TimeEmployment TypeInternshipJob DescriptionThe Autoimmune diseases (AID) disease area is seeking a motivated student for a six month internship starting as soon as possible.
AID are often characterized by heterogeneous clinical phenotypes and pathological mechanisms. Among other factors, recent emerging evidence has revealed that long non-coding RNAs could play a key role in immunological functions and autoimmunity. In this project the student will investigate the role of long non-coding RNAs in AID through RNASeq analysis and integrate those data into a larger multi-omics dataset.
The main goal is to implement a framework based on well Established machine learning algorithms to investigate clinically relevant patterns across different data types.
