Kiel University and Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology are looking for a motivated researcher for a Postdoc position (2 years, 39 h/week). The position is headed by Prof. Dr. John Baines.
About the project:
- The selected candidate will work on ongoing projects applying ecological and evolutionary approaches to gut microbiome-mediated treatment strategies for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
- The work consists of experimental mouse models of IBD, including gnotobiotic humanized mice, computational analyses of microbiome sequencing data, and ultimately the possibility to translate results to clinical settings.
- The candidate should have experience in one or more of the following: mouse experimental disease models, computational analysis of next generation sequencing data, evolutionary biology, microbiology.
- The position is embedded in the German Research Foundation (DFG)-funded Excellence Cluster “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” (PMI) and will involve work at both the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH, Campus Kiel) and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in nearby Plön.
- The candidate will interact with an interdisciplinary team of evolutionary biologists, microbiologists and clinicians and make use of state of the art in-house facilities for gnotobiology and next generation sequencing.
Candidates should send application by email to email@example.com (code 03/2020 in the subject line) including:
- Motivation letter that describes their interest in the position and their relevant background (max. one page)
- Copies of certificates
- Contact details of two references
