Doctoral Researcher (Systems Biology and Metagenomics)

Das Unternehmen

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute – (HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.

Ihre Aufgaben

The Systems Biology and Bioinformatics group participates in several high profile international consortia for modelling the association of human microbial communities and disease development. The disease spectrum that we currently focus on includes infectious diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer and atherosclerosis. We are trying to reveal the microbial compositions of the fecal microbiota that predicts subjects at disease risk and suggest microbiome-based therapeutic interventions to reduce the risk. The group has previously developed in house pipelines for the independent analysis of metagenomic, metatranscriptomic and stool metabolomic data, which are now further revised and upgraded to accommodate combined analysis for a large number of multi-meta-omic samples. We expect that the new Doctoral researcher will develop the protocols, approaches, and fundamental research needed for advancing our understanding in microbial ecology, with direct implications on biodiversity and human health.

Ihr Profil

 Master´s degree (for PhD candidates) in Systems Biology, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Biophysics or a related discipline.
 Knowledge in statistical methods in the context of biological systems.
 Experience with programming (Python, Perl, C++, R).

Unser Angebot

The successful candidates will be hosted at the Systems Biology & Bioinformatics (SBI) group of Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology, Hans Knoell Institute, Jena, Germany, and directly supervised by the Head of the SBI group. We offer an international and multi-disciplinary environment with the required qualifications and a strong expertise in the proposed research field. Currently the group consists of ~15 members at different levels of seniority (Post-Doctoral Scientists, PhD students, Master students, Scientific co-workers). More information for the research output of the group in the field of systems microbiome biology can be found here.Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). The HKI is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.
