The Institute for Integrative and Experimental Genomics has been founded in January 2013 and has its origins in a research group for Cardiovascular Genetics headed by Heribert Schunkert and Jeanette Erdmann at the University of Lübeck from 2004 until 2012. As a result of many years of successfully working together we have still a particularly close collaboration with the research group of Heribert Schunkert, director of the Deutsches Herzzentrum Munich.

The groups in Lübeck and Munich are nationally and internationally well-­recognized for their sucess in the field of cardiovascular genomics (Erdmann et al. Nature Genetics 2009, Schunkert et al. Nature Genetics 2011, Deloukas et al. Nature Genetics 2013, Erdmann et al. Nature 2013).

The major aim of the IIEG is to identify further coronary artery disease (CAD) risk variants by GWAS as well as next-generation‐sequencing in unrelated cases as well as multiplex families. Moreover the members of the IIEG are interested in understanding the underlying pathomechanisms. To accomplish this we have already established several knock-­out and transgenic mouse and zebrafish models, in-­vitro assays, as well as standardized phenotyping methods.

The IIEG is funded by European Union (FP7), University of Lübeck, BMBF (Deutsches Zentrum für Herz-­‐Kreislaufforschung e. V.), Excellence Cluster Initiative (inflammation‐at-­interfaces, DFG) and the Leducq Foundation.
A strong academic track record in statistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, and/or human genetics is requisite. Personal qualities such as good teamwork attitude, multitasking ability and communication skills (english, german) are also essential.

University of Lübeck is an equal opportunity employer and aims to increase the number of women in research and teaching. University of Lübeck has been certified as a family-friendly institution and is committed to further improve the compatibility of work and family life. The University supports the employment of disabled persons. Persons with disabilities will, with appropriate qualifications and aptitudes, be employed preferentially.
