Ph. D. Student Position (m/f)
“computational biology or bioinformatics”
(Code Number 08-16)

The aim of the project is to understand why the quality of egg cells declines with advanced maternal age. This decline in egg quality is the major cause for the increase in miscarriages, Down’s syndrome and infertility when women get older. The successful applicant will apply systems biology tools to single cell studies of human egg cells. The candidate will work closely with experimentalists who collect next-generation sequencing data using various functional genomics techniques. To learn about recent work from the lab please visit www.mpibpc.mpg.de/mschuh.

Ph. D. candidates should be team-oriented and hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in computer science, bioinformatics, physics or a related field. The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry provides an outstanding environment for cutting-edge and interdisciplinary research at the interface between computer science, physics and biology.

We offer a 3-year contract with the possibility of an extension. The successful applicant will receive a salary according to the funding guidelines for young researchers of the Max Planck Society.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
