Postdoctoral position in Bioinformatics

One postdoctoral position is immediately available to participate in a project within the newly established Jena Centre for Systems Biology of Ageing – JenAge funded by the German Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF). The Centre consists of 10 experimental and theoretical groups from the Friedrich Schiller University (FSU), the University Clinic Jena (UKJ), the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research – Hans Knöll Institute (HKI) and the Leibniz Institute for Age Research – Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI). Our group is responsible for data Management, for the setup of a new JenAge database and also for the Centre Management. We have a longstanding expertise in database development.

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate with a strong experience in programming and database systems as well as a good background in biology or chemistry. The successful candidate will closely work together with another postdoctoral researcher in our group also involved in JenAge data management and database development. The project is pursued in a particularly close collaboration with the text mining group at the FSU. Generally, good communication skills are a necessary prerequisite for this work because data management requires a strong interaction with all data-generating and modeling groups within the JenAge Centre.

Funding is available for three years with a possible prolongation up to five years. The salary is according to TV-L E13.

Please send your application including C.V., a short description of research experience and interests, and contact details of two referees preferably per email (referring to code number 1710 ).
