Job Description

Postdoctoral Position – Bioinformatics

The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing in Cologne invites applications for a Postdoctoral Position (Bioinformatics).

We seek a talented, dynamic, highly motivated young scientist to join our research group ‘Chromatin and Ageing’ headed by Dr. Peter Tessarz. We are interested in applicants with a strong background in the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data. This position will allow for the development of own research directions and thus, would be most suitable for candidates interested in pursuing a scientific career.

The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic, international and collaborative team in an excellent scientific environment. The group uses molecular biology, biochemistry and a variety of high throughput technologies (e.g. proteomics, metabolomics, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, NET-seq) in S. cerevisiae, murine embryonic and somatic stem cells to investigate links between chromatin plasticity and transcriptional regulation in the context of ageing.

Your qualifications

The person appointed will have a PhD or equivalent in a biological, computational or mathematical subject. Applicants with a background in biology are expected to demonstrate a solid understanding of molecular biology and experience of computational techniques used in the analysis of biological data. Applicants from computational or mathematical backgrounds are expected to demonstrate applied computational experience along with demonstrable knowledge and experience of biological research. Applicants from both backgrounds should have a good understanding of statistical methods and their application to large data sets. Expertise in the analysis of NGS using available R-packages (e.g. Bioconductor) is essential, knowledge of programming languages such as Python is a bonus as is previous experience in analyzing Hi-C/4C data. The working language is English.
