The applicant will join a team interested in genetic regulation at the level of multiomics systems involved in complex traits from cellular energy metabolism to final phenotype. The tasks will include the development of methods to validate the results and the continuation and monitoring of research projects that address the genetic and epigenetic basis of variation in energy metabolism traits and resilience.
We are looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate with a PhD/doctoral degree in biology, agricultural sciences (animal science), veterinary science or related. The candidate should have basic knowledge in cell culture and their analysis (RNA-Seq, ATAC-seq, FACS, Western blotting) as well as gene editing (CRISPR) technology to be implemented in in-vitro functional and validation studies. The candidate should be interested and experienced in holistic analyses of the genome, epigenome, transcriptome and metabolome and data integration. Ability to collaborate with researchers from different fields and at different career stages, willingness to be part of a team to share knowledge and skills and engagement in application for third-party grants and publication is expected. Working languages are German and English.
