Genetics Immunobiology Research Assistant Job @ Max Planck Germany

Job Offer from May 23, 2018

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany, is looking for a Research assistant for Drosophila genetics.

The position will be available in the Jenuwein group at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany. We aim to build a Drosophila project team (consisting of two Postdocs and one research assistant) to continue an ongoing collaboration with the laboratory of Gunter Reuter (University of Halle/Wittenberg). With this ad, we are looking for a research assistant with experience in Drosophila genetics. The position is open immediately and initially funded for two years.

Genetics Immunobiology Research Assistant Job @ Max Planck Germany

Your opportunities
This project offers exciting possibilities to connect classical fly genetics with molecular approaches to identify novel Su(var) genes and to characterize their function in heterochromatin regulation. As a research assistant in this project you will work together with two Postdocs. The position also allows collaborative work for Su(var) function in both Drosophila and mouse and is supported by synergistic interactions with other team members of the Jenuwein group.

Your tasks
Responsibilities include the maintenance and propagation of fly stocks that carry known Su(var) mutants and help in the mapping analysis of novel Su(var) mutations. This work involves classical fly genetics with PEV marker strains, isolation of genomic DNA and sequence and expression analysis of novel Su(var) genes.

Your qualifications
We are looking for a highly motivated research assistant that either has a BTA, CTA or MTA degree or can provide equivalent qualifications from extensive laboratory work. Knowledge of and practical experience with classical Drosophila genetics is a must. The ability to work in a team and strong communication skills with good command of the English language are expected additional assets.

We offer
Based within a region that connects Germany, France and Switzerland, our institute hosts a vibrant community of international researchers, state-of-the-art facilities and modern office spaces. A childcare facility is directly attached to the institute. At the heart of the Black Forest, Freiburg offers a family-friendly atmosphere and excellent recreational possibilities for cultural and outdoor activities. Salaries will be based on previous experience according to the German pay scale for civil service (TVöD) including health insurance and other social benefits.

The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.

Application
Have we sparked your interest? Please submit your complete application, including a 1 page motivation summary, CV and contact details of referees via our online application portal until July 13th 2018.
