The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany invites applications for a Postdoctoral Position in the Deep-Sequencing Unit.
Funding for this position is available immediately for an initial period of two years.
The unit supports all sequencing projects at the MPI-IE and for large consortia, such as the Collaborative Research Center "Medical Epigenetics"
(MEDEP). In this context we continue to adopt and develop new and sensitive methods for high-throughput sample preparation and sequencing.
You will be working in an interdisciplinary team with close links to different departments, research groups, and other core facilities (e.g. Bioinformatics). Your tasks will include
development, optimization and implementation of new protocols
automation of workflows
experimental design and critical assessment of sequencing projects
training and consultation of colleagues
We are looking for a motivated team player with strong communication skills and the desire to work in a dynamic environment. The successful applicant will have proven
experience with deep-sequencing technology and with the operation of liquid handling robots. The candidate should be able to combine high-quality service with technological
innovation and curiosity. Prior experience with chromatin assays (e.g. ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq), ultra-parallel methods or single-cell technologies is a plus.
Other requirements are
an academic degree and PhD in life science
fluency in English
Based in the Black Forest, within close vicinity to Switzerland and France, our institute hosts a vibrant community of international researchers with access to
state-of-the-art technology, such as a fleet of Illumina sequencers and pipetting robots for high-throughput studies. Salaries will be based on previous experience
according to the German pay scale for civil service (TVöD) including health insurance and other social benefits.
Have we sparked your interest? Please submit your complete application (including cover letter, CV, contact details of referees) via our online application portal at
www.ie-freiburg.mpg.de until May 31st, 2019.

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) in Freiburg, Germany is an interdisciplinary research institution that conducts basic research
in two key areas of modern biology: Immunobiology and Epigenetics. Central questions address the molecular basis of cell type identities, as they are regulated
during immune cell differentiation, metabolic response and epigenetic chromatin adaptation.
Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks
to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society strives for
gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. A childcare facility is directly attached to the institute.
If you would like to work in a dedicated team, please convince us now by sending us your complete application documents together with your salary expectations and your earliest possible date of joining the Institute.
