Assistant Professor position in population genomics and quantitative genetics open at the Strasbourg University (FR) – Deadline 31.03.2022

The recruited assistant professor will strengthen the team of teachers of genetics of the Faculty of Life Sciences at the bachelor level. He/she will be more particularly responsible for teaching genetics at the undergraduate level. It will be required to set up an introductory course in quantitative genetics at the undergraduate level as part of the new training offer in 2024. He/she will also be involved in the teaching of classical and population genetics in various courses to master students of the Faculty of Life Sciences. 

In addition, the assistant professor will strengthen the research activities of Molecular Genetics, Genomics and Microbiology Unit (GMGM, UMR 7156) in quantitative genetics, functional genomics and population genomics. The person recruited will be part of the ‘intraspecific variation and evolution of genomes’ team led by Joseph Schacherer. The research project must be in line with the team’s theme and tackle the exploration of one of the following axes: the evolution of genomes, the exploration of genetic / phenotypic diversity or the dissection of the genotype-phenotype relationship. In addition, one of the major objectives of this project will also be to incorporate a single cell analytical dimension at the population level. It may involve model or non-model organisms but must be done through innovative, interdisciplinary approaches and including technological challenges. 

Research fields: Population genomics, quantitative genetics, genotype-phenotype relationship, genome evolution, heritability

2 Independent Junior Group Leader Positions in Computational and/or Experimental Medical Systems Biology, MDC, Berlin (DE) – Deadline 17.02.2022

>>> clic here to see the complete job offer <<<

The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) is one of the world’s leading biomedical research institutions. Max Delbrück, a Berlin native, was a Nobel laureate and one of the founders of molecular biology. At the MDC’s locations in Berlin-Buch and Mitte, researchers from some 60 countries analyze the human system – investigating the biological foundations of life from its most elementary building blocks to systems-wide mechanisms. By understanding what regulates or disrupts the dynamic equilibrium in a cell, an organ, or the entire body, we can prevent diseases, diagnose them earlier, and stop their progression with tailored therapies. Patients should benefit as soon as possible from basic research discoveries. The MDC therefore supports spin-off creation and participates in collaborative networks. It works in close partnership with Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in the jointly run Experimental and Clinical Research Center (ECRC), the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) at Charité, and the German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK). Founded in 1992, the MDC today employs 1,600 people and is funded 90 percent by the German federal government and 10 percent by the State of Berlin.

Job Description

The successful candidates (f/m/d) are expected to conduct visionary independent research, acquire extramural funding, and engage in collaborative projects with experimental and computational groups and state-of-the-art technology platforms at the MDC and other research institutions, universities and hospitals in Berlin. The MDC will provide access to cluster and GPU compute facilities as well as support with administrative tasks (administrative assistance, 10 hrs/week), during onboarding, and for career development. 

For further information, please visit our website https://www.mdc-berlin.de/bimsb .
Enquiries about the positions and perspectives should be addressed to Nikolaus Rajewsky (rajewsky@mdc-berlin.de).


Experience in working in an interdisciplinary environment is desirable and a track record of highly successful post-doctoral research or, in exceptional cases, outstanding doctoral research is essential. 

We offer

  • International working environment with communication in English and German
  • Interesting career opportunities and a comprehensive range of qualification and further training opportunities
  • Compatibility of family and career certified by the berufundfamilie audit
  • Varied support for “New Berliners” (Welcome & Family Office)
  • Company health management with fitness center

The MDC is committed to diversity and actively supports equal opportunities for all employees regardless of their origin, religion, ideology, disability, age or sexual identity. We look forward to applications from people who are open-minded and enjoy working in joint teams. The MDC is certified by the “work and family” audit and provides an inclusive and family friendly environment. Applications from women are explicitly encouraged.
