The Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens (MPUSP) headed by its director Prof. Emmanuelle Charpentier is seeking a software engineer with excellent skills and
knowledge in the field of software development and familiarity with the analysis of large data sets. The successful candidate will work in the bioinformatics research
platform (focusing on Next-Generation Sequencing and proteomics data sets) headed by Dr. Knut Finstermeier.
MPUSP is an international research institute of the Max Planck Society located in Berlin. The institute was founded in 2018 with the mission to strengthen fundamental
research on pathogens causing diseases in humans. MPUSP aims to achieve a better understanding of the complexities of pathogens and their interactions with their natural
environment by developing innovative approaches (https://www.emmanuelle-charpentier-lab.org). MPUSP offers an
interactive and dynamic environment where our team of international and creative scientists are provided ongoing support to take on original research projects and answer
free-minded basic biological questions. MPUSP operates in a unique mode of cooperation between the administration, management and research. Our scientists benefit from a
state-of-the-art infrastructure, integrative and custom-designed research platforms and a wide range of scientific activities. MPUSP emphasizes personal development:
junior and senior scientists at MPUSP are engaged in research, but also take active part in scientific education, mentoring and teaching, and in the management and
development of the institute.
The institute is seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist to join an international and collaborative team in an outstanding and competitive scientific environment,
and to contribute with her/his expertise to the development of the institute's research topics. Further, we offer to train the successful candidate in bioinformatics,
the analysis of DNA/RNA sequencing data and the interpretation of analysis results in the context of molecular biology and microbiology. The successful candidate is
expected to pursue research at the highest standards and contribute actively to collaborative and complementary research across the institute.
