Cha­rité - Uni­ver­si­täts­me­di­zin Ber­lin - CC02, Department für Biochemie

Located in the heart of Berlin, the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin is one of Europe’s largest and most research-intensive medical faculties. The Ralser’s laboratory is world-renowned for its work in biological mass spectrometry, and it application in studies that understanding how cellular metabolism, the network of biochemical reactions in the cell, is regulated, how it evolved, and how it maintains functional integrity in the ever-changing environment the cell is exposed to. This research addresses fundamental problems in the life sciences, where knowledge about cellular metabolic systems is required to develop new therapeutics and to understand the molecular basis of disease.

PostDoc – Precision Medicine and human Proteomics

Working field:

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral scientist to join Prof. Markus Ralser’s laboratory at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Institute for Biochemistry. We have developed mass-spectrometry based methods that can very effectively measure thousands of quantitative proteomes. We apply them on human plasma samples and link the proteomes to genetic differences between the individuals. From the data, we generate machine learning models to predict the outcome of treatments. In this project, we will focus on acquired respiratory disease, such as bacterial and viral pneumonias.

We encourage the application of a postdoc with an experimental, analytical, as well as computational background. The post is ideal for someone with a computational or experimental background to get into the generation or analysis of large biological datasets, into the conduction of large proteomic experiments, and into the prediction of phenotypes from multi-omics data. The postholder will be working in the recently established BMBF Joint Project “Causal Analysis and Predictive Modelling of Molecular and Clinical Time-Series Data in Pneumonia Patients.

Scientific staff is given sufficient time to carry out their own scientific work in accordance with their employment relationship.


  • PhD, or Research Doctorate, in the basic sciences, ideally in proteomics or proteomic data analysis, or a related discipline
  • Productivity documented in published research articles or patents;
  • Experienced in the handling or generation or analysis of large and systematic experiments
  • Desirable are experimental skills in Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, or alternatively, the computational analysis of omics datasets
