    Opportunity: Short-term contract for a bioinformatic gene search @ The University of Tuebingen and Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology -- Tuebingen, Germany
    Submitted by Estienne Swart; posted on Wednesday, November 27, 2019


    Our DFG-supported project seeks to characterize the genes which are responsible for the avoidance of self-fertilisation in a ciliate (unicellular eukaryotic microbe). This phenomenon is often caused by mating type and receptor genes. We need a motivated gene hunter to find these. For this project, the genomes and transcriptomes of several strains have been sequenced. We are looking for someone with a bioinformatics background to analyze this data.


    • Gene prediction and analysis
    • Qualitative analyses of genic differences in these genome and transcriptomes
    • Differential gene expression analyses
    • Protein homology searches
    • Inference of protein function, particularly, of transmembrane proteins, to identify candidate genes involved in mating type determination


    • A Masters or PhD degree with strengths in bioinformatics/computational biology and the ability to program. A background in statistics or molecular and cell biology will be a plus.
    • Good English communication skills
    • We are looking specifically for candidates from Germany or surrounding European countries.


    • The position is immediately available.
    • Contract duration: 6 months with a master's degree, or 4 months duration with a PhD


    The project is a joint one of The University of Tuebingen and Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, both in Tuebingen Germany.


    Payment according to qualification and German law governing university contractors.


    Applications and queries should be directed in email to both: Prof. Dr. Dieter Ammermann: dieter.ammermann [at] and Dr. Estienne Swart: estienne.swart [at]
