Postdoctoral Position Proteomics (m/f/d)

Job offer from February 11, 2021

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg (Germany) has an opening for a Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d) in Proteomics for an initial period of three years.

The position will be available in the research group of Dr. Gerhard Mittler.

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) in Freiburg, Germany is an interdisciplinary research institution that conducts basic research in two key areas of modern biology: Immunobiology and Epigenetics. Central questions address the molecular basis of cell type identities, as they are regulated during immune cell differentiation, metabolic response and epigenetic chromatin adaptation.

Your tasks

We are seeking an innovative and highly motivated postdoc to join the proteomics unit at our institute. The successful candidate will explore novel and apply established proteomics methodologies for protein and PTM quantification in chromatin research and RNA biology. The latter will include label-free (DDA & DIA LFQ) and isotope labeling (SILAC, TMTpro, SureQuant) based approaches. Notably, the ideal candidate will develop novel and implement newly emerging workflows for proteomics data analysis and their application in service and collaboration.

Your qualifications

You hold a PhD degree in bioanalytical sciences (e.g. analytical chemistry/biochemistry/biotechnology) or have been comparably educated with at least three years of training and hands-on expertise in biomolecular mass spectrometry and proteomics technologies. You are familiar with LC-MS setup, maintenance and operations including processing of complex data sets. Sound knowledge in quantitative and statistical analysis is considered as an asset. Hence, basic knowledge in programming (R, python) is highly desirable. We expect a high degree of independent working, analytical reasoning and excellent communication skills in English and the ability to co-supervise junior scientists. Your scientific excellence enable you to successfully contribute to projects as part of a team and at the same time develop your independent research profile.

We offer

Salary will be based on previous experience according to TVöD guidelines.

Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. A childcare facility is directly attached to the Institute.

Application deadline

Have we sparked your interest? Please submit your completed application, including your CV, a short statement of research background/interests and two reference letters via our online application portal  by April 6th, 2021.
