PostDoc for Bioin­for­matics (m/f/d)

PostDoc for Bioin­for­matics (m/f/d) EG 13 or 14 TV‑L, dependent on quali­fi­cation; full-time term contract (39,8hrs) for 3 years

At the Institute for Animal Genomics. Starting date: earliest possible date

Area of respon­si­bility

The Institute for Animal Genomics is looking for a qualified person to strengthen the newly founded team of the work group „Veterinary Functional Genomics“, which aims at linking innovative and future-oriented basic research with trans­la­tional applied research in Animal Breeding and Genomics. The work group is interested in the genetic archi­tecture of the genome in livestock and pets, and its role in the develo­pment of pheno­typic traits.
PREGROW-project aims to provide a single nuclei transcrip­tional profile (single cell-seq) of the pituitary and its downstream targets in miniature-sized and larger-sized pigs as a model for prepu­be­scent growth control. This approach is meant to meet a big challenge we encounter in research work on growth: Body size is a whole-organism phenotype with many different tissues involved, and the variant effects are expected to be complex. For this reason, PREGROW aims at studying the genetic landscape of growth-axis-related tissues in the pig, providing a genetic resource for deciphering mecha­nisms of gene interplay, and under­lying variant effects.

The study will be conducted in colla­bo­ration with Prof. Dr. med. Spielmann, Institute for Human Genetics of the University of Lübeck and the University of Kiel.

The project offers oppor­tu­nities for independent project appli­ca­tions and options to qualify for the German Habili­tation.
