Postdoctoral Position - Genomic Analyses of Chromatin Conformation Dynamics

Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine

Münster, Germany

The Regulatory Genomics Laboratory at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Münster, Germany offers a Postdoctoral Position in Genomic Analyses of Chromatin Conformation Dynamics.

Your tasks

The laboratory seeks to appoint a highly motivated scientist to work on dissecting the molecular mechanisms that regulate chromatin conformation in eukaryotes, which is a strong focus of the group (Hug et al., Cell 2017). In particular, the successful candidate will generate and analyse genome-wide Hi-C datasets to investigate how chromatin conformation is established and its impact in regulating the correct deployment of developmental gene expression programmes or in disease. Specific tasks will include:

  • generation and analysis of Hi-C data for different developmental transitions or disease samples
  • integration of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq datasets relevant to the systems under study.

Your profile

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented postdoctoral fellow with a PhD in computational biology, bioinformatics, epigenomics, computer science, biostatistics, or related fields, and with a strong drive to excel in a highly international and collaborative environment. Previous experience in genome-wide data analysis (eg, Hi-C, RNA-seq or ChIP-seq) will be a significant advantage, but is not required prior to joining the laboratory. Please make sure that you detail your level of proficiency in dealing with genomics data in the cover letter.
