Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology and Epigenetics
The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany invites applications for the position of a Postdoctoral Research Associate for our in-house deep-sequencing facility. Funding for this position is expected to be available from September 2012 for an initial period of two years, with the possibility of extension. Responsibilities include the development of improved experimental protocols especially for ChIP-seq and the operational management of deep-sequencing projects. This position will also help with experimental design and provide critical advice to the users of the facility. Our group supports many projects at the institute, with a particular focus on immunological and epigenetic questions. This includes the generation, analysis and interpretation of genome-wide data.
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 a thorough understanding of molecular biology techniques, deep-sequencing applications, and the ability to perform high quality analyses in a responsible and independent manner. Candidates with prior experience in the operation of a deep-sequencing facility or other high-throughput techniques are strongly preferred.
Salaries will be based on previous experience according to TVöD guidelines.
