Postdoc posions in Systems Biology, Biophysics, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics Germany

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist (PhD in Systems Biology, Biophysics, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics or a related subject) with strong communication skills and a thorough understanding of mathematical modeling. The successful candidate should be experienced in computer programming (Matlab, Python, C++) and should have some expertise in data analysis, data fitting or image analysis.  The position is available for 2 years with possibility of prolongation.

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 handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply.

The group is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral scientist to perform a systems analysis of the complex regulatory network controling the onset of X-chromosome inactivation, an important epigenetic process early during development. The overall objective of this project is to gain a quantitative understanding of how cis- and trans-acting factors act together to ensure mono-allelic and female-specific expression of the long non-coding RNA Xist, which initiates X-inactivation. In close collaboration with experimentalists in the group, the successful candidate will develop mathematical models, perform deterministic and stochastic simulations and estimate model parameters based on single-cell and high-throughput data sets generated in mouse embryonic stem cells. Depending on interest and background there is also the possibility to participate in data generation.
