Type of Job: Young Researchers
PhD position – Bioinformatic analysis of epigenomic data

Job Offer from July 14, 2017

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics is an international research institute with approx. 250 employees, working in the field of molecular genetics. A special focus lies on functional genomics of man and other organisms.

The Max Planck Research Group “Epigenomics” (Head: Dr. Ho-Ryun Chung) combines both experimental and computational approaches to unravel the impact of chromatin structure and modifications on transcriptional regulation. The group offers an interdisciplinary environment to complement existing skills in experimental or computational analyses.

We invite applications for a PhD position – Bioinformatic analysis of epigenomic data (TVöD E13/2) Code: 17-18 C.

Responsibilities

The group is seeking an outstanding PhD student to perform bioinformatic analyses of epigenomic data from patients with Primary Myelofibrosis – a chronic blood cancer. The project aims at the definition of the epigenetic landscape of neoplastic stem cells in Primary Myelofibrosis and their healthy counterparts with focus on the contribution of genetic and epigenetic changes to the disease.

Qualifications

We are seeking a motivated team player with strong communication skills. A basic understanding of statistical and bioinformatic methods as well as fluency in programming languages, such as C++, perl, python and especially R, are required. Experience in the analysis of Next-Generation-Sequencing data, especially ChIP and RNA-seq data, is an asset but not mendatory.

Our offer

Funding is available starting 1 October 2017. The successful applicant should be willing to move from Berlin to Marburg by 1 July 2018.

The contract for the initial 8 months (October 2017 until June 2018) will be with the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics; and starting July 2018, the applicant will receive a new contract valid until 30 September 2019, with the possibility of an extension from the University of Marburg.

Application

The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more individuals with disabilities and especially encourages them to apply.

Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, references, and a statement of research interests no later than 20 August 2017 to:

Max-Planck-Institut für molekulare Genetik
Personalabteilung, Code: 17-18 C
