Research and own qualification within a collaborative project between the Genomics Unit of the Institute of Genome Biology at the Leibniz-FBN and the University of Hohenheim funded by the German Research Council (DFG Forschergruppe P-Fowl). Within an interdisciplinary project we will address the molecular pathways and endocrine determinants of the phosphorus metabolism in quails and laying hens. Therefore we will analyze the differential gene expression at the background of different genotypes and phenotypes using Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS) techniques and bioinformatics tools. The project aims to improve the efficiency of phosphorus use in animal breeding in order to save this valuable resource and to reduce the environmental impact caused by phosphates.
– Master degree, diploma, or an analogous degree in biology, physiology, animal science or related fields
– High motivation and willingness to learn new techniques and approaches in metabolic physiology and molecular biology
– Ability to work in an international team
– Willingness to work with domestics as well as marine animals
– Ability to plan, organize and conduct independent research
– Fluency in English (oral and written) and strong communication skills
