The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIZ) seeks
a post-doctoral scientist
to establish Affymetrix chip hybridizations for different types of array. In
addition the successful applicant will work closely with research groups to
prepare hybridization experiments and analyze the data. The position will be
based in the DNA core facility which houses a DNA sequencing service, robots
for array construction and an Affymetrix chip hybridization station.
Extension of the facility to include massively parallel sequencing
approaches is planned for the next year.
We seek a candidate with a PhD in biology, genetics or a related field.
Previous experience with array hybridizations or other genomics-based
approaches would be an advantage. Very good English skills are required and
German language skills would be advantageous. Payment and benefits are
according to the German TVÖD. The position will initially be limited to two
years with the possibility of a further extension depending on performance.
The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIZ) in Cologne
