We seek outstanding, interactive candidates with a strong publication record and an innovative research profile in COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY (method development or application) in ageing research, including topics such as bulk & single-cell sequencing data analysis, biostatistics & computational systems biology, mathematical modeling, machine learning, genomic instability, epigenetic alterations & ageing clocks, RNA biology, proteostasis, senescence, stem cell exhaustion, metabolic & mitochondrial dysfunction or microbiome-ageing interactions.
As the successful candidate, you will have opportunities to network with, in particular, the following research initiatives in Mainz: the recently established focus area ReALity, the SFB on “Regulation of DNA repair and genome stability”, and the graduate school GenEvo on “Gene regulation and evolution”. Moreover, IMB is located in close proximity to Mainz’s University Medical Centre with a Systems Medicine initiative and the Gutenberg Health Study, one of the largest prospective health studies worldwide. You will have access to state-of-the-art computational infrastructure at IMB and in Mainz, such as the MOGON II cluster.
Positions are initially offered for 5 years and can be extended to up to 10 years following positive evaluation.
