    Opportunity: Bioinformatician (m/f/div) @ Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) -- Cologne, Germany
    Submitted by Max-Planck-Institut f├╝r Pflanzenz├╝chtungsforschung; posted on Monday, September 20, 2021


    The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) is one of the world's premier sites for research into fundamental processes in plant biology. Around 400 staff from all over the world work at the institute, which consists of four scientific departments, several independent research groups, and specialist support. The Department of Plant Microbe Interactions at the MPIPZ is a global leader in research that seeks to define the principles as well as consequences of plant interactions with harmful and beneficial microorganisms.


    The successful applicant will develop and apply computational tools for the analysis of high-throughput amplicon sequencing, and (meta)genome and (meta)transcriptome data from experiments designed to deepen our understanding of the evolution and functions of the plant microbiota and the host immune system. Candidates are expected to interact closely with computer scientists and experimental biologists in a multidisciplinary environment.


    We seek a creative and motivated candidate with a PhD in computer science, bioinformatics, statistics, biology, or a related field. The applicant should be proficient in the use of Linux / Unix and have proven experience in the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Proficiency in scripting and software development (e.g., Python, C / C++, Java, R) is desired. The ability to work in an environment at the interface of biology and computer science, in addition to good communication skills, is essential. Knowledge of plant biology and/or microbiology and a strong interest in solving biological questions would be advantageous.

    This position is available immediately, and the initial contract is for a duration of two years with the possibility for extension.

    The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Further, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the percentage of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages female candidates to apply.


    Salary and social benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the German TVöD Bund (E 13; salary agreement for public service employees)


    Applicants are requested to submit a motivation letter and CV (in English as a single PDF file) including the names and affiliations of two referees through the online system:[...]epage
