MeInBio aims the dual education in BioInformatics and Laboratory which approach to exploring the spatio-temporal dynamics of gene regulation using high-resolution and high-throughput methods.

The doctoral position is looking for junior researchers with expertise in life sciences, e.g.,  genetics, molecular medicine, cell biology, molecular biology, medicine, or biochemistry. The dual education profile will require a strong interest in the training of the student’s respective fields or other fields.

A total of 12 doctoral positions will be available, which will be funded for up to three years.

What do they offer? 

  • An exciting modern research project that is well-equipped and uses state-of-the-art technologies.

  • Professional and productive management got by a proposition warning board of trustees
  • Normal courses in bioinformatics and wet lab strategies
  • Extra “soft abilities” courses and get-togethers of all research training groups or individuals for scientific trade

About the Research Projects 

MeInBio research traverses a wide range of model frameworks: from microbes to human malignant growth cells. MeInBio researchers utilize these frameworks to understand how cells respond to upgrades from the climate, and how cells control their improvement on a transcriptional level. In vivo, numerous comparable-looking cells in the close areas might act in an unexpected way, hence MeInBio researchers attempt to examine tiny populaces of cells or single cells.

About the University 

In 1457 the Freiburg Church was the site of the foundation of a university.

The University of Freiburg was among the champs of the cross country “Great Educating” contest in 2009. Coordinated by the Standing Meeting of the Priests of Training and Cultural Affairs and the Stifterverband for German Science and Research, the opposition perceives imaginative educational ideas.

Since February 2022, more than 200 individuals from the university have been grappling with inquiries about the university’s future in ten working gatherings.
