The Vogel lab invites applications for a postdoc position to study bacterial pathogenesis by several RNA-seq based approaches. The ultimate goal of this project is to achieve a high-resolution of gene expression on the single-cell level. For research themes and more information about methodology, see some of our recent publications:
- (Westermann AJ et al. (2016) Dual RNA-seq unveils noncoding RNA functions in host-pathogen interactions. Nature 529:496-501;
- Smirnov A et al. (2016) Grad-seq guides the discovery of ProQ as a major small RNA binding protein. PNAS 113:11591-6;
- Saliba AE et al. (2017) Single cell RNA-seq ties macrophage polarization to growth rate of intracellular Salmonella. Nature Microbiology in press).
The successful applicant will work in the dynamic environment of the IMIB (www.imib-wuerzburg.de) and participate in DFG funded projects. Positions will be based on E13 salary range, and funded for up to three years. Part time employment is also possible. We welcome applications from suitably qualified people from all sections of the community regardless of race, gender or disability. The University aims to increase the proportion of female employees, therefore applications from qualified women are particularly welcome. Preference will be given to people with disabilities in the case of otherwise equal aptitude.
For informal inquiries, please contact Prof. Jörg Vogel ([email protected]). Applications should include a short cover letter, CV and publication list, copies of relevant documents and contact information for academic references as a single PDF file. Please send your application by January 22, 2017 via email to [email protected].
