Call for Applications
The Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU Jena), founded in 1558, is one of the oldest universities in
Europe and a member in the COIMBRA group, a network of prestigious, traditional European universities.
The University of Jena has a distinguished record of innovations and resulting educational strengths in
major fields such as optics, photonics and optical technologies, innovative materials and related technologies,
dynamics of complex biological systems and humans in changing social environments. It has more than 18,000 students.
The research group for Analytical Chemistry, Cheminformatics and Chemometrics at Jena University is led by
Prof. Christoph Steinbeck and focuses on computational metabolomics and natural products research, the
elucidation of metabolomes by means of computer-assisted structure elucidation and other prediction methods,
information systems in metabolomics and algorithm development in cheminformatics.
The research group for Analytical Chemistry, Cheminformatics and Chemometrics now invites applications for
Postdoctoral Positions in Computational Metabolomics and Cheminformatics
The successful candidates will work in an exciting network of local and international collaborations, such as the
PhenoMeNal project funded by the European Commission in their Horizon2020 framework program.
We are looking for a talented cheminformatician, bioinformatician or someone with comparable skills to work on the
development cloud-based methods for computational metabolomics. The successful candidate will work closely with the
H2020 e-infrastructure project PhenoMeNal, a European consortium of 14 partners. This position requires excellent
skills in at least one modern, object-oriented programming language. A strong interest in metabolomics and cloud
computing as well as the ability to work in a distributed team will be advantageous. The postdoc will also have
the opportunity to participate in the day-to-day management of the group as well as in the organisation of seminars
and practical courses for our students.
We will accept applications until the position is filled.
