The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics is an international research institute with approx. 250 employees, working in the field of molecular genetics. A special focus lies on functional genomics of man and other organisms.
In the newly established Max Planck Research Group "Regulatory Networks in Stem Cells" (Otto-Warburg-Laboratory, Head: Dr. Edda Schulz), we are interested in how mammalian cells employ gene-regulatory networks to switch and maintain transcriptional and epigenetic states. Specifically, we study the initiation of X-chromosome inactivation and how it is integrated with differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells. We use an interdisciplinary systems biology approach, where quantitative data, generated by single-cell and high-throughput techniques is used to develop mathematical models of the regulatory network, which are then tested by experimental perturbations through genome engineering in mouse embryonic stem cells.
We invite applications for the following open position:
PhD student (f/m)
(50% E13 TVöD)
Code: 14-24 S

The candidate will conduct an exciting research project at the interface of stem cell research, epigenetics and systems biology. Specifically, he or she will generate complex quantitative data sets using fluorescence microscopy and high-throughput techniques and/or use these data sets to develop mathematical models.
We are seeking a highly motivated junior scientist with a completed diploma/master’s degree with lab experience and/or programing skills and the ability to work independently and in a collaborative manner.
The position is available for 3 years.
