Data Sci­ent­ist (gn)


ISAR Bioscience GmbH is a trans­la­tional research com­pany in Planegg near Munich, sup­por­ted by the Free State of Bavaria.
Our research focuses on the devel­op­ment of RNA thera­peut­ics, human induced pluri­po­tent stem cells (hiPSC), the immune sys­tem and on degen­er­at­ive dis­eases of the brain and heart. We have a unique pipeline that we are con­sist­ently mov­ing into pre­clin­ical trials.

We have an open­ing for a

Data Sci­ent­ist (gn)

The pos­i­tion is an integ­ral com­pon­ent of the research con­sor­tium “RNA deliv­ery and Lipid Nan­o­particles” that includes col­lab­or­a­tions with industry, start-up com­pan­ies, and aca­demic part­ners and is fun­ded by the Ger­man Fed­eral Min­istry for Eco­nomic Affairs and Cli­mate Action (BMWK). The pos­i­tion is loc­ated in a close cooper­a­tion with the Uni­ver­sity of Würzburg at the Chair of Phar­ma­ceut­ical and Medi­cinal Chem­istry (Brun­sch­wei­ger group). If applic­able, the pos­i­tion offers the option to pur­sue a PhD at the Uni­ver­sity of Würzburg.


The pos­i­tion is in the field of data sci­ence at the cross­roads of chemin­form­at­ics and bioin­form­at­ics for thera­peutic RNA applic­a­tions. The con­sor­tium is devel­op­ing innov­at­ive poly­mers enabling effi­cient lipid nan­o­particle (LNP) pro­duc­tion for mRNA deliv­ery with the ulti­mate goal of reach­ing remote tis­sues. The pos­i­tion offers a unique, inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research set­ting that allows for ana­lysis of data sets from chem­istry (Hybrid-Lip­id/Hy­brid-Poly­mer syn­thesis, LNP man­u­fac­ture) and bio­logy (advanced cell cul­tures, single-cell RNA seq., etc.), with advanced com­put­ing infra­struc­ture for model build­ing and decision mak­ing for next-gen­er­a­tion thera­peut­ics. Crit­ical know­ledge required for the gen­er­a­tion of R&D data for advanced deliv­ery sys­tems for thera­peutic mRNA, includ­ing vari­ous cells derived from induced pluri­po­tent stem cells, animal stud­ies, and advanced ima­ging mod­al­it­ies is available.


Applic­ants should hold either and M.Sc. or a Ph.D. in the field of bioin­form­at­ics or chemin­form­at­ics, or have com­pleted stud­ies in bio­logy, chem­istry, chem­ical bio­logy, bio­chem­istry, phar­macy, or related sci­ences, and have exper­i­ence in inform­at­ics, prefer­ably in data­base pro­gram­ming and hand­ling. In addi­tion, we expect a strong desire to per­form research with enthu­si­asm and cre­ativ­ity, a high grade of self-motiv­a­tion, the abil­ity to work inde­pend­ently, and Ger­man as well as Eng­lish lan­guage com­mu­nic­a­tion skills.
