Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK)

IPK Gatersleben is a large, internationally recognized centre of plant research that addresses problems of modern biology with an emphasis on crop plants. Our scientific expertise integrates a broad diversity of disciplines to elucidate the mechanisms underlying processes of plant development, metabolism, and interactions with the environment. Our research aims at the generation of fundamental knowledge and the development of genetic and biotechnological tools to spur the knowledge-based use of plant-genetic resources to optimize a variety of crop traits. Frequently, this involves co-operation with various national and international universities as well as public-private partnerships.

The research group Bioinformatics and Information Technology is engaged in the management of research data, in the implementation of integrated biological information systems/data warehouses for performing in silico analyses and presenting sequencing data. We are contributing to genotyping and re-sequencing projects of different plant genetic resources hosted in the IPK Genebank. For data management, we use a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Web-information systems are developed based on Oracle® Application Express. The programmatic, API-based data access is based on RESTFul web services.

Your tasks:
In the research project BeanAdapt Phaseolus vulgaris and Phaseolus coccineus accessions from the IPK Genebank will be sequenced using GBS (Genotyping By Sequencing). Your task is the management of the analyzed data sets using Oracle® data base technology. You will work together with colleagues which handle similar data sets from other species. You will contribute to the development of web-based information system to make this diversity accessible and implement powerful user friendly visualization routines.
Your qualification:
You possess a Master/Diploma in (bio-)informatics or equivalent academic degree. You must have a strong background in data base technology and a robust understanding of developing web-based user interfaces. You have experience with UNIX/Linux command line program execution, R, Java and JavaScript programming. You have proven excellent writing and presentation skills and you are a team player.
