The candidate should be interested in applying computational methods to biological problems. Apply now We are hiring a
PhD student (m/f/d) in Computational Biology.

Possible projects are within the following areas:
1.    3D reconstruction and image analysis of liver tissue:
       a.    Development of new algorithms for microscopy image segmentation and analysis aiming to build reliable high-resolution 3D models of liver tissue.
       b.    Mathematical and computational modelling aiming to bridge liver tissue structure with its function.

2.    Development and implementation of algorithms and tools for the analysis of image-based genomic functional screens:
       a.    Extraction of high-content multi-parametric phenotype descriptors from microscopy images;
       b.    Probabilistic analysis of multi-parametric profiles, prediction of biologically meaningful functional modules and their interconnections.

3.    Development of new approaches for data analysis:
       a.    Develop models and algorithms to extract quantitative parameters from raw experimental data;
              i.    Mathematical models of biological processes to extract biologically meaningful parameters from experimental data;
              ii.    Computational algorithms to extract directly non-observable values from experimental data.
       b.    Develop models to explain experimental data and predict the results of genetic/pharmacological perturbations in biological systems;
       c.    Develop new approaches to link experimental results and input/output parameters of theoretical models.

The above projects aim at understanding the design principles of cell and tissue structure and function, including the developing and regenerating mouse liver.

Candidates should have a degree in natural science (physics, biophysics, computer science or similar). Knowledge of high performance and parallel computing is an advantage. Since the aim of the projects is to develop theory to complement experimental biological studies, some knowledge of biology and experience in the analysis of experimental data is required. An excellent command of English together with good communication skills and self-motivation are also required.

news-830 Thu, 07 May 2020 12:20:00 +0200 Postdoctoral Position to study the ‘Origin-of-cellular-Life’ / Out-of-equilibrium biophysical Systems https://www.mpi-cbg.de/join-us/open-positions/job-offer/postdoctoral-position-to-study-the-origin-of-cellular-life-out-of-equilibrium-biophysical-systems The Kreysing Lab at the MPI-CBG successfully applied for a 1.3M€ collaborative research grant, and is now offering a Postdoctoral Position to study the ‘Origin-of-cellular-Life’ / Out-of-equilibrium biophysical Systems. Job Description

Our lab pursues experimental biophysical research. We are interested in the spatiotemporal patterning of living and chemical systems. The lab investigates how the spatial organization of molecules can spontaneously arise. Specifically, we aim to understand how i) temperature gradients, the simplest out-of-equilibrium environments can lead to the selective enrichment of phase-separated protocells, which might have been present during the origin of cellular life.

ii) We seek to understand how emergent material properties of such phase-separated compartments contribute to their distinct physiochemical identities and functions.

Requirements

For this experimental project, we seek a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to complement our lab from a biophysical, physical or quantitative biology perspective.

The candidate should hold a PhD in a relevant discipline and should be familiar with multiple of the following concepts: lab-on-a-chip technologies, microfluidics, next generation sequencing, RNA-protein interactions, polymer biophysics, rheology, phase separation programming for hardware control. Excellent knowledge of English is required.

Salary and social benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the German TVöD Bund (the salary agreement for public service employees, up to level E13). The contract will be limited to 2 years with the potential of extension. We especially encourage women to apply. This full-time position is available immediately.

Applications should include: a cover letter indicating the motivation to apply for this position, a CV including a publication list, a concise description of previous research accomplishments (<1 page), and contact details of at least 2 approachable academic referees. There is no deadline.

This material should be submitted via our online application system stating Code 2020-PostDoc-VMK1 in your application letter at:
