The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) has special focus lies on functional genomics of humans and other organisms. The MPIMG and particularly the interdisciplinary Max Planck Research Group ‘High-Resolution Functional Genomics’ provides an excellent training and research environment for highly skilled and ambitious researchers seeking challenges at the cutting edge of functional genomics. There is an offer for a fulltime PhD student (m/f/d) Bioinformatics position in the Group ‘High-Resolution Functional Genomics’ (Head: Dr. Andreas Mayer): 1 PhD student (m/f/d) Bioinformatics
About the project:
- The project aims at the understanding of the mechanisms that control human stem cell differentiation to establish cell type-specific gene expression programs.
- A particular focus is on the identification of the causes and consequences of transcript isoform changes in neuronal cell differentiation.
- The position is offered initially for three years.
- Applicant must be highly motivated and skilled individual in the area of next-generation sequencing informatics.
- Candidates should have a Master’s degree or a similar qualification in computational science or in related disciplines.
- The early career researcher will have a firm knowledge of the programming languages Python or R as well as expertise in Linux.
- Prior experience in machine learning and in the development of computational pipelines or tools is a plus.
- The successful applicant will benefit from experience in the analysis of genome- and transcriptome wide data.
