    Opportunity: Exciting PhD Opportunity at the interface of Neuroscience, Deep-Sequencing and Bioinformatics @ Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics -- Freiburg, Germany
    Submitted by Thomas Manke; posted on Tuesday, August 15, 2017


    The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics and the University of Freiburg, Germany offer a PhD position in the group of Thomas Manke. The position is available for a three-year appointment.

    Your tasks:
    You will be part of a newly established research training group (MeInBio), which aims at a dual education in bioinformatics and wet laboratory methods to explore the spatiotemporal dynamics of gene regulation using high-throughput and high-resolution methods. This specific project aims at understanding the genome organisation during neuronal differentiation at high resolution. To this end, detailed molecular maps of histone modifications, chromatin states and chromatin conformation in 3D will be generated, analysed and interpreted.

    Your qualifications:
    PhD applicants should hold a MSc/Diploma in life sciences, ideally with a strong computational component. MSc in Bioinformatics or Informatics will be considered, if they can demonstrate practical expertise with molecular biology techniques. We are looking for highly motivated candidates who are showing strong interest in interdisciplinary research and the desire to work at the interface of epigenetics, neuroscience and bioinformatics. We also expect fluency in both written and spoken English.

    We offer:
    • Dual education in computational and molecular biology
    • State-of-the-art technologies and infrastructure (e.g. deep-sequencing, imaging, bioinformatics)
    • International, multidisciplinary environment
    • Regular courses in bioinformatics, laboratory techniques and soft skills
    • Great location at the heart of the Black Forest and in close vicinity to France and Switzerland
    • A salary based on the MPG Support of Junior Scientists guidelines
    Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. A childcare facility is directly attached to the institute.


    Your application:
    Please submit your complete application, including a statement of research interests and a CV to our application platform by September 11th, 2017.


    At the same time, please ask two of your referees to send recommendation letters to personal[at]
