The MDC is a member of the largest scientific organization in Germany - the Helmholtz Association - and offers a stimulating and interactive research environment with the most modern infrastructure. Currently, 1,250 employees and approximately 500 guests work at the locations in Berlin-Buch and Berlin-Mitte. The diversity of our workforce is a strength and promotes creativity and innovative spirit at the MDC. We are looking to recruit a post-doctoral data scientist to join our team working on the molecular basis of extreme biology using the naked mole-rat as a model. In the group led by Gary Lewin we work to discover and characterize molecular mechanisms that contribute to the unique biology of the naked mole-rat. We hypothesize that the highly social nature of the mole-rat is key to understanding it's extreme biology. The exceptional biology of this species includes hypoxia resistance, cancer resistance, extreme longevity, vocal culture, low metabolic rates and poikilothermy. The group uses multi-omic approaches to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlyng these astonishing traits. See recent group publications: Park, Reznick et al. Science 2017 PMID 28428423 Eigenbrod et al. Science 2019 PMID 31147513 Barker et al Science in press We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with data science skills to mine multi-omic datasets from the naked mole-rat and related species.
