Open positions at FIMM

Due date: 15 October 2023

The Computational Systems Medicine group led by Tero Aittokallio is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher with strong computational and analytical skills and an interest in implementing and applying machine learning and network-based approaches for AI-based drug repurposing and drug combination predictions, through analysing and integrating multi-omics data from pre-clinical and clinical resources.

The group focuses on developing and applying integrated computational-experimental approaches to tackle biomedical questions, such as how genes function as interaction networks to carry out and regulate cellular processes, how perturbations in these networks contribute to complex traits, such as human diseases, and where and how in the disease network one should target to optimally inhibit disease phenotypes, such as tumour growth or metastasis. 

The candidate will be working closely with the EU-funded REMEDi4ALL consortium. The position will offer an excellent vantage point in the rapidly developing field of drug repurposing.
