    Opportunity: PhD Students -- BIOINFORMATICS @ Goethe Universitaet Frankfurt -- Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Submitted by Prof. Dr. Ingo Ebersberger; posted on Wednesday, January 30, 2013

    SUMMARY

    The Department for Applied Bioinformatics in the Institute for Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Goethe University Frankfurt, is looking for two highly motivated PhD Students (E13 TV-GU, 50%) to complement its research staff. The positions will be available initially for three years with the option of extension.

    BACKGROUND

    We are a young Bioinformatics group within the Faculty of Biosciences and our research circles around biological sequence evolution in the broader sense. One main focus of the group is phylogenetic profiling of protein complexes and of entire gene sets from individual species with the long term goal of a reliable annotation transfer from model to non-model species. Ongoing projects include the development of new approaches for simulating protein sequence evolution and for efficiently predicting orthologs in large species collections. Moreover, we are interested in approaches to predict functional equivalence between proteins, as well as in phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses using high-throughput DNA sequence data.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    Within our group you will have the opportunity to contribute to ongoing projects but we expect you also to pioneer new research topics in the areas of NGS analysis, RNA seq or comparative genomics. You will also participate in teaching activities within the university's Bioinformatics Bachelor and Master programs.

    REQUIREMENTS

    University degree in bioinformatics, computer science, molecular/systems biology, mathematics/statistics, physics, or related fields is required. We expect good programming skills in at least one of the following programming/scripting languages: Java, Perl, Python, C, C++, or R. Experience in working with high-throughput biological data (either computationally or experimentally) is preferred but not strictly required. Strong communication skills and a willingness to collaborate and to teach on an undergraduate and graduate level is a must. We expect good proficiency in English, and at least basic knowledge of the German language would be a plus.

    LOCALE

    Germany, Frankfurt am Main

    HOW TO APPLY

    Please direct your application together with your resume and the usual documents (including 2 letters of recommendation) until the 28/02/2013 in electronic format (PDF) to neumaier[at]bio.uni-frankfurt.de: Prof. Dr. Ingo Ebersberger, Institute for Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Dept. for Applied Bioinformatics, Max-von-Laue Strasse 13, 60438 Frankfurt am Main.

    DEADLINE

    Until the February 28, 2013

    POLICY

    The Goethe University advocates equality of opportunity for men and women and therefore expressly encourages women to apply. Persons with severe disabilities will be given preferential consideration in case of equal qualifications.
