The MPI-CBG and CSBD are together hiring a
in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
We are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatician with a PhD in Bioinformatics or a biologist with strong interest in computational analysis interested in answering biological questions in the area of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Specifically, the candidate’s work focus will be on the development, application and validation of novel bioinformatic analyses and workflows in the area of NGS including transcriptomics, epigenomics and spatial transcriptomics.
The Huch group works asking questions on how tissues regenerate from the molecular to the tissue scale using the liver and pancreas as models. For that we combine mouse models, as an in vivo model of tissue regeneration with human and mouse organoid models we have pioneered over the years (Huch et al., Nature 2013, Huch et al., Cell 2015, Broutier et al., Nature Medicine 2017). Our interest in omics and other dataset analyses ranges from epigenome to metabolome and cell-cell interactions, as reflected in our recent publications (Aloia et al., Nature Cell Biology 2019, Prior et al., Development 2019, Cordero-Espinoza et al Cell Stem Cell 2021, Belenguer et al., Nature Communications 2022), where we have analysed a wide range of datasets ranging from DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation, bulk and single cell RNA datasets or lipidomic datasets. We have a long-standing track record of national and international collaborators, with whom we also collaborate on the analysis of these datasets. The successful candidate will be embedded in the Huch lab and work in close collaboration with bioinformaticians of the Scientific Computing Facility, dedicated to supporting the projects and science taking place within the MPI-CBG.
The full-time position is for an initial period of 2 years with the possibility of extension. We offer:
