Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin
The Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens (to be established)
of Max Planck Director Prof. Emmanuelle Charpentier is seeking a
Post-doc (Bioinformatics) (m/f) (Microbial Sciences)
for a full-time employment (39 hours/week) of initially 2 years
The Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology is an international research institute with approximately 250 employees, working in the
field of immunology and infectious diseases. A special focus lies on identification of relevant pathways during the infection of pathogenic bacteria.
Bioinformatics projects related to –omics data analysis to identify and analyse novel regulatory RNAs and proteins, and their expression profiles in infectious processes by bacterial pathogens.
To translate the extensive datasets into knowledge, the candidate will apply the latest existing analysis tools from the RNA-Seq and/or proteomics field and will be encouraged to develop new tools and bioinformatics pipelines for –omics data and design her/his own project.
The successful candidate is expected to provide bioinformatics and statistics support to wet-lab scientists of the Department.
The successful candidate will be in constant connection with microbiology and infection biology-related questions. In silico findings will be verified in functional experiments, thus leading to translation of the bioinformatics data into novel biological findings.
Experience in analyzing –omics data, in particular RNA-Seq and proteomics
Knowledge of bioinformatics data analysis pipelines
Excellent Python and R programming skills
Experience with Unix/Linux operating systems and scientific computing
Very good knowledge and understanding of statistics Excellent English communication skills (written and spoken)
PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, applied mathematics, statistics or related area
A proven record of successful publications in highly respected international scientific journals
Ideally some experience in biology related questions
Experience in providing bioinformatics support and collaborating with wet-lab scientists
Ability to work independently and as part of an international team
The candidate must have a profound interest in all research topics of the Department
We expect a person who is self-motivated and enthusiastic to work in a competitive, dynamic, stimulating and interacting international scientific environment focusing on basic biological research.
Experience with analysis of RNA sequencing from bacteria will be considered an advantage
An international post-doctoral experience abroad is considered as an advantage
According to the training, qualifications and professional experience, the remuneration can be up to EG 14 TVöD (Bund).
The position is available at the earliest possible date.
