Type of Job
Job Offer from March 29, 2017
The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany invites applications for the position of a Bioinformatician to start as soon as possible for an initial period of two years, with the possibility of extension.
Our Institute investigates the molecular basis of the immune response and other topics of the developmental biology, such as the origin and differentiation of the immune cells as well as the develop-ment of vertebrate embryo. Another main focus of the Institute is Epigenetic. This area deals with inheritable traits, which are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence.
Our group supports many deep-sequencing projects at the institute and from the Collaborative Research Center “Medical Epigenetics” (MEDEP). The open position provides an excellent opportunity for collaborations within a large network of interdisciplinary scientists from the Freiburg region. You will have the opportunity to contribute directly to research projects from experimental design to data analysis and interpretation. The successful applicant will join a strong inter-disciplinary team that provides valuable know-how and access to a large Sequencing Facility (HiSeq3000, HiSeq2500, NextSeq), as well as a high-performance Data Center with Petabyte-scale storage solutions.
Responsibilities include the development, comparison and testing of software solutions for the analysis of deep-sequencing data. In close interaction with our experimental partners, you will provide algorithmic solutions to their analyses and data interpretation. You will also help with established training programs and help our partners with experimental design, quality control and the analysis of genome-wide data.
We are looking for a motivated team player with strong communication skills and the desire to work in a dynamic environment. The successful applicant will have proven experience with deep-sequencing analysis and specific computational skills:
Based within close vicinity to both France and Switzerland, our institute hosts a vibrant community of international researchers and many state-of-the-art facilities and modern office spaces. At the heart of the Black Forest, Freiburg offers a family-friendly atmosphere and excellent recreational possibilities for cultural and outdoor activities.
Salary will be based on previous experience according to TVöD 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.
Have we sparked your interest? Please submit your complete application (cover letter, CV, contact details of referees) directly via our online application portal until May 2nd , 2017. For informal inquiries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
