Default PhD @ MPI for Immunobiology, Freiburg, Germany

The International Max-Planck-Research School for Molecular and Cellular Biology invites applications for a

PhD Studentship in Computational Biology

from outstanding and highly motivated students to join the Computational Biology group at the Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology. The position is for an initial two-year appointment with the possibility of extension.

Our group utilizes high-throughput experimental data and computational methods to elucidate the regulatory programs that determine cellular development and the maintenance of cell identity. The focus will be on the development of computational models to improve the prediction of gene expression status.

During the course of this interdisciplinary project the PhD candidate will be exposed to a wide range of numerical techniques, statistical methods, and quantitative models. For the successful applicant this project also offers many exciting opportunities for close collaboration with experimental and computational researchers. You will be a member of the IMPRS graduate program and benefit from the intensive and structured education and mentoring practice. The working language is English.

The ideal candidate will have strong programming skills and a demonstrated ability to apply them to biological problems. Previous experience with the statistical analysis of genome-wide data would be particularly welcome. Biologists with proven analytical skills and the desire to move into a computational field are also encouraged to apply.

• Master degree in bioinformatics or a numerical science
• experience with Unix/Linux OS
• knowledge of scripting language (e. g. perl)
• excellent communication skills and fluency in English

The payment is commensurate with the guidelines for fellowships of the Max Planck Society. A childcare facility is directly attached to the MPI of Immunobiology. Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Candidates should send their application indicating the reference number 080310 via e-mail to or by regular mail to the Personnel Department, Max-Planck-Institute of Immunobiology, Stübeweg 51, 79108 Freiburg.

Applications will be accepted until May 16th, 2010.
