    Opportunity: Group Leader/Team Leader - COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY / BIOINFORMATICS (#HD_00217) @ EMBL--Heidelberg, Germany
    Submitted by EMBL Recruitment; posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012


    The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany) and the outstations are in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).

    The Structural and Computational Unit seeks to recruit an outstanding group leader or team leader in computational biology or bioinformatics working in areas such as structural bioinformatics (e.g. modeling of protein complexes and their interactions and/or dynamics in a cellular context), image analysis/visualization (e.g. reading out data from GFP screens, E-tomograms or visualizing a virtual cell atlas), cheminformatics (e.g. chemical-protein-network analysis), systems bioinformatics (e.g. tissue modeling, analysis network perturbations) or transcriptional regulation/epigenetics (e.g. chromatin modification analysis).

    It is desirable that the new activities complement and are synergistic to existing research in the unit. The vision of the unit is to integrate the various structural biology approaches (Xray, NMR, electron microscopy, tomography and light microscopy) with computational, chemical and systems biology.


    We are open to applications from candidates who wish to focus entirely on their own research projects and, because there is an increasing need to integrate and streamline the multiple computational approaches followed within EMBL, to candidates who wish to function at the interface between research and service activities.


    The successful candidate should demonstrate a strong motivation to work in the multidisciplinary and collaborative environment of EMBL, reaching out to the many other computational and experimental groups.

    Further information about research in the Structural and Computational Unit and at EMBL can be found on the EMBL web page.
