Graduate students

Computational graduate students and postdoctoral fellows

BDS Lab @ Technion

The Aran Lab integrates multidimensional biomedical data — including genomics and clinical data — to
advance precision medicine and improve therapeutic strategies. The core themes of the lab are:

  1. Developing computational methods to understand cellular heterogeneity in complex tissues.
  2. Incorporating cutting-edge technologies to study cellular dynamics in the tumor microenvironment affecting response to immunotherapies.
  3. Investigating real-world evidence and developing machine-learning models to improve clinical

The lab is affiliated with the Faculties of Biology and Computer Science and the Lorry I. Lokey
Interdisciplinary Center for Life Sciences and Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology,Haifa, Israel.

We are seeking motivated students to develop and study novel approaches in translational
bioinformatics, or the application of analytic and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of
data of many types into proactive, predictive, preventative, and participatory health.

Ideal candidates will have:

  • Strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, and genomics.
  •  Strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and the ability to build new software tools as
    needed are required.
  •  A background in molecular biology or medicine or pharmacology will be a strong plus.
  • Prior experience with genetic, drug, or clinical databases, machine-learning, deep-learning, textmining and knowledge representation is a plus.
