At the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, clinicians and scientists are working in close cooperation to understand the causes of complex diseases of the brain, searching for new prevention and treatment strategies. This translational research strategy is supported by a modern psychiatric research hospital as well as a number of research departments and research groups with expertise ranging from neurobiological research methods as well as clinical and behavioral studies to molecular genetics. The overarching goal is to optimize the benefit of research advances for the patients by way of close and innovative networking of basic research-oriented and clinical neuroscience.
The Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany, is one of the leading research institutes worldwide focusing on the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders with a truly translational approach, combining both clinical and basic research in the same institute.
The NGS team as part of the research group of Prof. Dr. Dr. Elisabeth Binder is looking for a motivated
Postdoc (m/f/d) in “Analysis of stress-related disorders using multilevel next-generation sequencing data from post-mortem brain tissue”
Investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying stress-related psychiatric disorders in post-mortem brain tissue represents a unique opportunity in psychiatric research. The applicant (m/f/d) will focus on the analysis and integration of genetic and epigenetic post-mortem brain data derived primarily from next-generation sequencing using existing and new approaches.
