Open position in the Beltrán and Kerschensteiner labs

PhD Student in Bioinformatics at the Biomedical Center of the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich (Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology)


The Beltrán and Kerschensteiner Labs at the Biomedical Center of the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich are looking for a PhD student in Bioinformatics. The candidate will develop bioinformatic methods for integrative analysis of scRNA-seq and snRNA-seq datasets from multiple sclerosis (MS) human samples and related MS models. Such integrative analysis of MS related data sets will allow us to identify and remove from the equation the species-specific or model-specific mechanisms and thereby improve the translational predictability of preclinical models and facilitate the functional interpretation of MS-related changes in the immune and nervous systems.

We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic and hard-working applicants with bioinformatics background, who are fluent in English. The starting date for this position is flexible, but we aim for beginning of 2022. Funding for this project is secured for 3 years. If you are interested in the position please send a letter of motivation, your CV and the names and contact details of 2 to 3 references to:

Dr. Eduardo Beltrán, Group Leader, Single-cell Genomics Lab, Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology

Prof. Dr. med. Martin Kerschensteiner, Chair, Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology
