Job Offer from September 14, 2021
The Genome Centre Cologne at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) in Cologne is seeking a Bioinformatician (m/f/d) (Post-Doc or M.Sc. level) to join a state-of-the-art genomics service group. We are looking for a candidate with a completed scientific doctorate or M.Sc. grade in bioinformatics, biostatistics or a comparable field. Applicants with degrees in related fields such as molecular biology, molecular genetics and general biology and a track record in bioinformatics will also be considered.
The candidate (m/f/d) should be familiar with bioinformatics tools for analyzing NGS sequencing data (Illumina, Pacific Biosciences, Oxford Nanopore) and single cell technology e.g. 10x Genomics. The candidate should be able to discuss and give advice on biological questions that users want to solve using sequencing, including in the pre-project phase.
Bioinformatic tools encompass programs for sequence quality testing, sequence comparison, sequence assembly, variant detections, RNAseq assessment, phylogeny, sequence annotation, etc.
The candidate should have good programming skills in languages used for the development of bioinformatic tools (e.g. Python, Perl, R) and in UNIX shell script development. The candidate should be able to translate complex problems into efficient scripts and should be able to develop programs for parallel processing. The applicant is expected to be team-oriented, have good communication skills and interact with the current lab manager on a daily basis.
Fluent written and spoken communication in English is essential, and German would be highly advantageous.
The position is initially limited to two years with an approximate starting date of November 2021. Payment and benefits are based on German TVöD.
The Max Planck Institute of Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) is one of the world’s premier sites committed to research of fundamental processes and training in plant biology. There are four science departments, the Genome Centre Cologne, three independent research groups and specialist support, totaling ~ 400 staff including externally funded positions.
The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.Please send your application including CV and name of at least two academic referees as a single PDF through the online system , by latest September 30, 2021
