Offer description


Institute for Molecular Infection Biology (IMIB)

Postdocs and PhD students

Programmable RNA antibiotics

The Institute for Molecular Infection Biology at the University of Würzburg is seeking doctoral researchers and postdocs to drive a 5-year collaborative research program on RNA-based antibiotics.

The program aims to build a platform technology for the computational prediction, molecular analysis and validation of next-generation programmable antibiotics.

For more information on the project, see this webpage.

Successful candidates will work in the groups of Profs. Jörg Vogel, Franziska Faber or Lars Barquist, which bring together expertise in pathogenic model organisms, state of the art RNA-centered molecular biology and computational biology.

As a member of the interdisciplinary team, the candidates will apply molecular approaches in anti-infectives research, high-throughput RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) and other functional genomics techniques, as well as innovative statistical and machine learning methods to develop RNA-based anti-infectives targeting single microorganisms in mixed microbial populations.

For information on Keynote qualifications, see: www.imib-wuerzburg.de/career/Bayresq_Postdoc_and_PhD

Requests for further information should be directed to joerg.vogel@uni-wuerzburg.de.

The position can be filled in full- or part-time as soon as possible and will be available for two years with the possibility of extension to five. Salary will be based on the pay scale for the public sector in Germany (TV-L) and comply with qualification.

The University aims to increase the proportion of female employees, therefore applications from qualified women are particularly welcome. Preference will be given to handicapped persons in case of otherwise equal aptitude.


Please send your application as a single PDF file including your CV, list of publication, a short description of research interests, future directions and at least two academic references  by January 19th, 2022 to  Monika Schraut  monika.schraut@uni-wuerzburg.de.
