1. Postdoctoral Fellow / Staff scientist in computational biology

We are looking for a motivated computational biologist / computational scientist interested in hypothesis-driven approaches to study the mechanistic relationship between genome structure and gene control. The position also involves developing algorithms and maintaining pipelines for genome structure (Hi-C, HiChIP, ChIA-PET, etc.), epigenome (ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq, etc.) and transcriptome (RNA-Seq) analyses. Strong coding skills is a must.

2. PhD students in gene control biology 

We have vacancies for 2 PhD students to study the interface of transcriptional control, genome structure and phase separation in mammalian cells and cellular cancer models. No previous experience is necessary, but experience with epigenetic techniques and embryonic stem cell culture is a plus. Commitment and ability to learn fast are essential. Candidates will be able to enroll at the Free University Berlin. Candidates will also have the chance to apply for a membership of the International Max Planck Research School, the graduate program run by the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, depending on their background. PhD students in any local graduate program are free to conduct their research training at a Max Planck Institute, and are thus welcome to apply.
