We are seeking TWO SCIENTIFIC ASSISTANTS to study transcriptional activity of human endogenous retroviruses in the clinical context. The research project, funded by the German Research Foundation, will be divided into wet-lab and dry-lab work. The successful applicant for the wet-lab work will be able to demonstrate practical expertise in relevant molecular genetic techniques for characterizing transcriptional activity of genomic sequences. The successful applicant for the dry-lab work will be able to develop and employ bioinformatic tools for analysing sequence data generated during the project and available in public databases. He/She will thus be able to demonstrate prior expertise in related bioinformatics approaches, in particular, transcriptome analysis. Expertise in endogenous retroviruses or other repetitive elements will be advantageous for both positions. Both candidates will join an established research group at the Department of Human Genetics at the Medical Facu!
lty that is closely collaborating with the Center for Bioinformatics at the university campus in Saarbrücken.

Candidates for the wet-lab position must hold a Diploma or Master's degree in biology or a closely related subject. Candidates for the dry-lab position must hold a Diploma or Master's degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, or a closely related field. Funding will be available for three years.

Salary (TV-L E13(1/2)) will accord to tariff and other applicable terms of the University of Saarland. Saarland University is an equal opportunities employer. In accordance with its policy of increasing the proportion of women in this type of employment, the university actively encourages applications from women. Severely handicapped persons will be favored when equally qualified.
