As part of the Cluster of Excellence “Inflammation at Interfaces”, our main research focus is the identification and characterization of genetic susceptibility loci for human longevity. The successful applicant will be responsible for investigating host-microbiome interactions addressing the link between microbiota composition, gut homeostasis, genetic variation and human longevity.
The project will focus on processing large-scale next generation sequencing (NGS) data and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotype data. The obtained microbial profiles will be investigated within and between different age-groups. The successful applicant will be responsible for data generation (including lab work) and data analyses.
- We are looking for a strongly motivated candidate, ideally with previous experience in bioinformatics, genetics, molecular biology or a related field. Basic programming skills and some knowledge of NGS analysis tools is advantageous. The candidate will become part of an interdisciplinary research group in the excellent research environment at the University Hospital Kiel.
