Jobs Open positions in our lab

We are always seeking highly motivated new members for our research team!


1.) Postdoc position: Adressing neural stem cell plasticity in the adult CNS

To unravel fundamental questions of stem cell plasticity in the adult brain we are aiming at using single cell technologies incl. clonal lineage tracing, and next generation sequencing to study and compare glial progenitors of the embryonic, adult naive and adult injured CNS.

The ideal candidate should have experience in at least one of the following areas:

  1. Developmental neurobiology
  2. Genome engineering
  3. Single cell sequencing technologies

2.) Postdoc position: Computational analysis of single-cell sequencing data

To unravel fundamental questions of stem cell plasticity in the adult brain we generate next generation sequencing data from single cells, including whole genome methylome, whole genome transcriptomics and whole genome proteome. 

The ideal candidate should have experience in at least one of the following areas:  

Qualified candidate should have ...

  1. a degree in Bioinformatics, Genomics, Statistics, Computer Science, Physics, or a related field
  2. experience in at least one programming language (R, python, perl, JAVA, C/C++)
  3. experience in working on Linux system
  4. experience in next generation sequencing data analysis is desired, but not required

Researchers from all disciplines with a recently completed PhD or who are about to finish their PhD are welcome to apply. Candidates are expected to have a published record of achievements that would enable them to succesfully apply for postdoctoral fellowships and should send a CV, letters of recommendation, and a short outline of their research interests to i.weirich@dkfz.de.
 
Interested PhD candidates can apply to our lab through the DKFZ International PhD program
