Default Postdoctoral Position in epigenome informatics

The German Cancer Research Center is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany. With more than 2,700 employees, we operate an extensive scientific program in the field of cancer research.

The Division of Molecular Genetics is seeking for November 2014 a

Postdoctoral Position in epigenome informatics
(Ref-No. 159/2014)

A post-doctoral position is available at the Division of Molecular Genetics at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg for a computational biologist who wants to further specialize in epigenome informatics.

The Division of Molecular Genetics, headed by Peter Lichter, is comprised of a mix of molecular and computational biologists working as a multidisciplinary team on a wide range of genomics and epigenomics research projects. We already successfully analysed several genomic data sets and integrated transcriptome and methylome level data (e.g. Hovestadt et al. Nature). The team is international and multidisciplinary in a lively and friendly working atmosphere, and state of the art computing infrastructure. We are looking forward to expanding our team by a dedicated and strongly motivated person with distinct interest in the challenges of modern sequencing applications.

The successful applicant will lead the integrative analysis for an epigenome project investigating the mechanism of therapy resistance. Based on multilevel epigenome profiling using whole genome bisulfite sequencing, RNA- and ChIP-sequencing the applicant will be encouraged to develop own research ideas in the area of epigenome regulation, evolution of the epigenome and development of therapy resistance.

Your profile:
The candidate should have experience in analysing short read DNA sequencing data ideally in the context of transcriptomes and epigenomes (i.e. DNA methylation, histone modifications, general DNA-protein interactions). Demonstrable skills in programming and biostatistics (e.g. Perl, Python, R, Matlab) as well as the Linux computing environment (e.g. BASH, HPC usage) are essential. Candidates with a background in computer science, mathematics or statistics should be familiar with molecular biological methods. The candidate will closely interact with molecular biologists therefore good communication skills are required. The application should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, copies of relevant degree certificates, contact details for at least two reference persons.

The position is limited until September 30, 2016. The position can in principle be part-time.

For further information please contact
Dr. Marc Zapatka, phone 06221 42-4584.

The German Cancer Research Center is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and encourages female applicants to apply. Among candidates of equal aptitude and qualifications, a person with disabilities will be given preference.
