PhD Position (E13 TV-L, 60%) in Computational Biology/Bioinformatics

Interfaculty Institute of Microbiology and Infection Medicine Tübingen (IMIT)

The research group “Applied Natural Product Genome Mining” is developing new bioinformatic tools for the discovery and prediction of novel natural products at the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, and is financed by the German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF). We are a young and highly motivated research team at the interface of bioinformatics and molecular biology with special interest in distribution and evolution of biosynthetic gene clusters of bacterial natural products. We want to understand how chemical diversity in natural environments is created and use this knowledge to improve metabolic engineering efforts as well as bioinformatic predictions.

PhD Position (E13 TV-L, 60%) in Computational Biology/Bioinformatics

We seek an enthusiastic scientist with a Masters in Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, or closely related disciplines with experience and interests in bioinformatic analyses. The project is focusing on improving and developing tools for antibiotic discovery in genomic and metagenomic data. Candidates are expected to have a solid foundation with the Linux/Unix command line, network and computer administration, and basic programming skills. Several applications used are written in python so proficiency in this language would be beneficial, however any experience with other languages will also be considered. The position is limited for three years.


Interested scientists should submit their application documents (CV, motivation letter, 2 references, grade transcripts) as a single .pdf-file via email to: nadine.ziemert[at] by May 15th 2018.


Equal opportunities are an integral part of our personnel policy, we therefore particularly encourage qualified women to apply. Disabled persons with otherwise equal qualifications are given priority.
