We are one of the three largest university clinics in Germany and with more than 14,500 employees, the largest employer in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. We perform university medical research and teaching at 51 clinics and 26 institutes at our medical faculties in Kiel and Lübeck.
The Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology is focused on the understanding of the pathophysiology of chronic inflammatory disease, namely inflammatory bowel disease and has contributed to the molecular elucidation how interactions between environmental factors such as the microbiome and host factors such as IBD risk genes transform into chronic intestinal inflammation.
The Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB) at Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (CAU) offers 1 position for a scientist/postdoc (m/w/d) in bioinformatics (Biologist, informatician, bioinformatician) (TV-L E13)
The IKMB, together with the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centre 1182 “Metaorganisms” (CRC 1182; “Sonderforschungsbereich”), is looking for a motivated bioinformatician with a PhD in bioinformatics, molecular biology, genetics, informatics, bioinformatics or a related field to join our interdisciplinary research group. A key goal of the CRC is to understand the molecular underpinnings that govern the interaction of host organisms with their associated microbiomes. To this end, a central task of the position will be to develop and implement comparative genomics approaches to enable analyses of multi-level omics data across diverse model organisms – ranging from plants to human. The ideal candidate should have experience in pipeline development, analysis of next-generation sequencing data and an interest in contributing this skillset to support diverse research projects. As the CRC is highly international, very good knowledge of the English language, both written and orally, is expected.
The position will be hosted at the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB), which hosts one of the four national German DFG-funded sequencing centres and is embedded in multiple high-profile research efforts, including the two DFG Excellence Clusters “Precision Medicine in Chronic In-flammation (PMI) and ROOTS. Through this stimulating working environment, the candidate will have an opportunity to interact with colleagues both nationally (e.g. through our membership in the German Network for Wioinformatics, de.NBI) and internationally working on diverse bioinformatic challenges, including genome projects and complex data integration as well as related soft-ware/infrastructure, to further improve her/his professional profile in these areas. Courses for additional certificates and visits of international conferences are supported.
The position is immediately available until 31.12.2023 with the prospect of continuation. The salary will be paid in accordance with remuneration group E 13 TV-L (Public Sector Collec-tive Agreement). Part-time employment is also possible. The preferred starting date is as soon as possible.
The UKSH 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. The UKSH has set the goal to reach professional equality between men and women. The University aims to increase the number of women among the faculty staff and therefore explicitly encourages the application of female scientists.
