A postdoctoral position is available in Prof Andrea Streit’s group for 15 months to work on interdisciplinary projects combining developmental biology, epigenetics, transcriptional networks and bioinformatics. The Streit lab studies how multipotent progenitor cells are committed to the ear and sensory ganglia lineage and how epigenetic mechanisms control the regenerative potential of sensory hair cells in the ear.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated candidate holding a recent PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology. The successful candidate will work closely with developmental and molecular biologists and be responsible for the analysis of NGS data (RNAseq, ChIPseq, ATACseq etc.) from databases and other sources, integrate this information in gene regulatory networks and generate predictive models. S/he will have expertise in the areas of computational biology, network modelling, bioinformatics or data analysis, will be proficient in programming languages like R, PERL, Python, C++, Java etc., have an excellent scientific track record and will be keen to work in an interdisciplinary team.
