The new DFG Clinical Research Unit ‘Male Germ Cells: from Genes to Function’ (CRU326) investigates in translational projects human male germ cell function in health and disease at the genetic, epigenetic, and molecular level.

The Clinical Research Unit consists of clinicians and basic researchers from the local Centre of Reproductive Medicine and Andrology, Department of General Paediatrics, Institutes of Human Genetics, Cell Biology, and Medical Informatics, and the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Biomedicine.

More information on the Clinical Research Unit and projects can be found under:

In a joint project, the groups of Prof. Frank Tüttelmann, Institute of Human Genetics, and Prof. Martin Dugas, Institute of Medical Informatics are seeking two postdocs to start at the earliest opportunity on a 3 year funded period with the possibility for extension.

Full-time (100%)
Employment is funded at 100% of TV-L E14, conditional to previous experience and qualifications

The project entitled “Coordination and integrated analysis of OMICs data” focuses on the identification of epi-/genetic changes associated with male infertility. The project will be conducted in a strong translational setting, in which clinicians, scientists and bioinformaticians are working together closely and involve next-generation sequencing techniques and bioinformatics.

Required qualifications:

  • University degree (required) in Bioinformatics or Medical Informatics (PhD level desired),
  • experience in analyses of Next Generation Sequencing data (required),
  • excellent programming skills (required) in at least one language (ideally R and Java desired),
  • fluency and excellent communication skills in English (and German) (required),
  • strong commitment to research and development in a translational setting (required).

We offer:

  • the setting of an interdisciplinary Clinical Research Unit
  • an international, multidisciplinary, and creative working environment,
  • state-of-the-art research facilities (e.g. High Performance Computing capacity),
  • excellent possibilities for career development and networking.
