The German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) is one of four National Research Centres funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It is located in the city of Leipzig and jointly hosted by the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU), the University of Leipzig (UL), and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). It is supported by the Max Planck Society, the Leibniz Association, the Klaus Tschira Foundation, and the Free State of Saxony. Its central mission is to promote theory-driven synthesis and data-driven theory in this emerging field. The concept of iDiv encompasses the detection of biodiversity, understanding its emergence, exploring its consequences for ecosystem functions and services, and developing strategies to safeguard biodiversity under global change. The Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, in cooperation with iDiv, offers the following position starting as soon as possible and limited until September 30th 2020, salary Entgeltgruppe 14 TV-L:

Embedded in this active research environment, the Bioinformatics Unit (BIU) is a central hub and fundamentally important for research projects at iDiv. Many research groups of iDiv need bioinformatics expertise for their highly diverse research tasks. The duty of the BIU is to support iDiv research groups with their computational expertise, for example by developing new algorithms for genomics, metagenomics, or metabolomics datasets. One of the main tasks of the head and the two postdocs of the BIU is to consult the family of diverse researchers at iDiv and to collaborate with them to ensure a professional analysis of their data so that their scientific questions are addressed in a statistically and algorithmically sound manner. Furthermore, the head and the postdocs of the BIU will design and provide courses and workshops on bioinformatics within yDiv, the graduate programme at iDiv. Last, but not least, the BIU is to coordinate the computational work of iDiv with the Biodiversity Informatics Unit (BDU) and sDiv, the synthesis centre for biodiversity sciences at iDiv.

We expect / requirements:
• a PhD in bioinformatics or a related discipline such as computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, or biology
• profound knowledge of and expertise in bioinformatics and NGS data analysis
• expertise in computational genomics and transcriptomics, metagenomics and metatranscriptomics, population genomics, phylogenomics, epigenomics, or metabolomics
• expertise in the statistical analysis of high-throughput data, machine learning, and high-performance computing
• an excellent publication record in one or several of these areas
• to be a team player with excellent communication and interpersonal skills
• experience with group leading and project management
