Doctorado epigenético y bioinformático en Alemania

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.

Your tasks:

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.

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

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

Application deadline:

Please submit your complete application, including a statement of research interests and a CV to
our homepage until May 15th, 2020.
