Max-Planck-Institut für Molekulare Genetik
The group is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to generate histone modification maps for various cell types in chronic inflammation. The project is part of a large consortium that aims at mapping histone modifications, DNA methylation states and mRNA and miRNA expression status in various disease-related cell types. The successful applicant will develop and apply a chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) workflow: (i) chromatin isolation, (ii) automated chromatin immunoprecipitation, (iii) automated library preparation for next generation sequencing and (iv) appropriate controls for chromatin fragmentation, ChIP efficiency and library quality. The emphasis lies on the generation of highly reproducible data sets adhering to predefined quality standards in a high throughput manner.
We are seeking a motivated team player with strong communication skills and a thorough understanding of molecular biology techniques. The successful candidate will have a proven scientific track record (including first author publications), a strong background in chromatin research and should have experience in performing chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments.
Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, references, and a statement of research interests until August 3rd, 2012 to:
