Job Description

The Genome Biology Unit is looking for outstanding candidates performing exciting interdisciplinary research, which complements on-going work within the Unit and the institute as a whole. We particularly encourage candidates with interests in specific aspects of gene expression regulation (transcriptional, post-transcriptional or post-translational regulation), nucleotide modifications, metabolism, and cellular heterogeneity. We also welcome strong proposals from candidates with demonstrated excellence in any area of genome biology that dissects and/or models complex processes going from genotype to phenotype. This group leader position provides a very competitive package to support an independent research group in an excellent scientific and highly collaborative environment.

The Genome Biology Unit is a highly interdisciplinary department, including groups with expertise in Genomics, Genetics, Proteomics, Computer science, and Microfluidics, which provides a collaborative and supportive environment to perform cutting edge research. The research focuses on dissecting fundamental principles of how different layers of molecular information (DNA, RNA, Protein, Metabolites) are regulated, and interconnected to give rise to diverse phenotypes, and how variation alters those processes.

Further information about the position can be obtained from the Head of Unit Eileen Furlong (furlong(at)embl.de).

Interviews are planned for 5th and 6th December 2016.

Information on Group Leader appointments can be found under http://www.embl.org/gl_faq.
An initial contract of 5 years will be offered to the successful candidate. This is foreseen to be extended to a maximum of 9 years, subject to an external review.

Requirements

EMBL generally hires group leaders early in their career and provides them with a supportive and collegial environment in which to develop ambitious and original research. We foster interdisciplinarity by providing a highly collaborative environment that benefits the research of all its scientists, including at the graduate, post-doctoral and group leader levels.
