Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics
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:
- PhD degree or MSc with relevant work experience in bioinformatics or in a related field;
- proven expertise in programming, scripting and statistical analysis;
- experience with analysis of genome-wide data;
- organizational talent and multi-tasking ability;
- very good command of English language.
