The Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) is a German-Polish research center for data-intensive digital systems research. We combine innovative methods from mathematics, theoretical systems research, simulations, data science, and computer science to provide solutions for a range of disciplines – materials science under ambient and extreme conditions, earth system research, systems biology, and autonomous vehicles.
CASUS was jointly founded in August 2019 by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, the Technical University of Dresden and the University of Wroclaw. CASUS is located in the heart of Görlitz at the border between Germany and Poland. The CASUS start-up phase is hosted by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Saxon State Ministry of Science and Art.
The Earth System Science department seeks a project manager to coordinate internal activities, collaborations with partners, and interactions with stakeholder on a project focusing on developing data, models, algorithms, and software for optimizing the use of limited SARS-CoV-2 testing capacity.
Location of work is Görlitz, the working hours will amount to 20 h per week.
The position can begin immediately and the contract will be limited until 31.12.2022 in duration at 50% effort.
The Scope of Your Job
The scientific project coordinator will be part of a team studying how to optimally deploy limited testing capacity in an emerging epidemic. This successful candidate will be responsible for coordinating activities across team members in the areas of data fusion, epidemiological modeling, algorithm development, and software development. Importantly, the team must be synchronized to produce near-term products that start simple and then are gradually expanded in scope, functionality, and refinement. The scientific project coordinator will also coordinate activities with project partners, both within Germany and internationally, and will facilitate interactions with public health professionals and institutions in Germany.
