We are seeking a talented and motivated bioinformatician to develop the new core facility for the
analysis of genomic data at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin – Leibniz Institute for Evolution
and Biodiversity Science.
The jobholder is expected to establish his/her own research agenda in the field of evolutionary
genomics and to provide bioinformatics support within the Museum to enable multidisciplinary
research projects as for example in the context of the “Center for Integrative Biodiversitydiscovery”
at the MfN. Both tasks involve engagement in grant applications as well as training and supervision
of students and post-docs.
The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin provides an excellent research environment. It houses stateof-
the-art laboratories for molecular genetics and computation. Numerous independent research
groups are working in a wide range of research fields including population genetics, phylogenetics,
developmental and evolutionary genetics, and taxonomy. Our world-class zoological collections
provide unique access to specimens collected over the last 200+ years. The Berlin-
Brandenburg region is characterized by a highly international academic and cultural community.
The cities Berlin and Potsdam as well as their water-rich surroundings offer excellent possibilities
for recreation. Living costs are still moderate.
For more information, please contact Dr. Frieder Mayer (MfN), Museum für Naturkunde, Leibniz
Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science (firstname.lastname@example.org).
