We are offering a
Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d)
The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg (Germany) has an opening for a postdoc in the Proteomics Research Facility for an initial period of three years.
We are seeking an innovative and highly motivated postdoc to join the proteomics research facility at our institute. The successful candidate will optimize and apply state-of-the-art proteomics approaches including identification, quantification and characterization of proteins and their modifications in samples submitted by in-house collaborators. In combination with bioinformatics tools, the ideal candidate will introduce novel sample preparation and protein analytical workflows to support and further develop ongoing projects in the area of immunobiology, epigenetics and chromatin research as well as in RNA biology. Duties will also include support in operation and maintenance of our nano(U)HPLC-MS systems (Q Exactive family of mass spectrometers and LTQ-OrbitrapXL+ETD). The successful candidate is also expected to further our expertise in the areas of DIA and targeted proteomics (PRM).
The ideal candidate is holding a PhD degree in bioanalytical sciences (e. g. biochemistry, biotechnology or proteomics) with at least three years of training and hands-on expertise in biomolecular mass spectrometry and proteomics technologies. Experience in maintenance and troubleshooting of LC-MS systems as well as in bioinformatics MS data analysis (e.g. by MaxQuant, Perseus, PEAKS Studio, Mascot, Skyline) is absolutely essential for this position. Basic know-how in Linux/Unix and knowledge in programming (R scripts, Python) is highly desirable and considered as a plus. Advanced English communication skills, a high degree of independent work ethic and the ability to function in a team are completing your profile.
Salary will be based on previous experience according to TVöD guidelines.

Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics
Our Institute investigates the molecular basis of the immune response and other topics of the developmental biology, such as the origin and differentiation of the immune cells as well as the development of vertebrate embryo. Another main focus of the Institute is Epigenetics. This area deals with inheritable traits, which are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence.
Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome applications from all backgrounds. A childcare facility is directly attached to the Institute.
If you would like to work in a dedicated team, please convince us now by sending us your complete application documents together with your salary expectations and your earliest possible date of joining the Institute.
