    Opportunity: PhD in Computational Epigenetics @ Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics -- Freiburg, Germany
    Submitted by Thomas Manke; posted on Friday, August 07, 2020

    BACKGROUND

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

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    You will be part of an interdisciplinary 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 regulatory control of neuronal differentiation at single-cell resolution. To this end, detailed molecular maps of histone modifications, transcription factor binding and chromatin accessibility will be generated, analyzed and interpreted.

    REQUIREMENTS

    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.

    TERMS

    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

    COMPENSATION

    Salary will be based on the MPG Support of Junior Scientists guidelines.

    HOW TO APPLY

    Please submit your complete application, including a statement of research interests and a CV via our online application portal at www.ie-freiburg.mpg.de/jobs until September 11th, 2020.

    DEADLINE

    11 September 2020

    POLICY

    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. The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. A childcare facility is directly attached to the Institute.
