Group leader position in bioinformatics, Dresden
> The BioTechnological Centre of TU Dresden (TUD), Germany, in
> cooperation with the Klaus-Tschira-Foundation and the Max-Planck
Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) invite
applications for a group leader in bioinformatics.
> We seek to recruit outstanding candidates with an interest in
> understanding genome, transcriptome, proteome or metabolome data. We are
particularly interested in candidates with a strong track record in
protein structure, protein/DNA/ligand interaction, gene expression data,
and/or metabolic pathway data analysis, or evolution. However, any
outstanding candidate will be considered. Candidates should possess a
PhD in computational, physical, mathematical or life
> sciences with a strong publication record and exciting research plans.
> The positions are BAT-O Ia/b depending on qualifications. Exact pay
depends on age and status. The initial appointment is up to December
2008 with the possibility of prolongation a year and subsequent tenure
depending on performance. The position comes with adequate funding for
two pre-docs and infrastructure. The pre-docs may be recruited through
the International PhD Programme for Molecular Cell Biology and
Bioengineering Dresden hosted by the MPI-CBG and TUD.
> The groups will be co-located in the new BioInnovation Centre (BioZ)
together with other bioinformatics groups. The centre hosts groups in
genomics, proteomics, biophysics, tissue engineering, zebrafish
> and cellular machines, as well as a number of companies. It is in close
proximity to the Max Planck Institute and the medical faculty. Besides
a host of
> biological services available through the BioZ and the MPI, the groups
will have access to a unique high-throughput RNA interference
