The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) in Freiburg, Germany, is an interdisciplinary research institution that conducts basic research in two key areas of modern biology: immunobiology and epigenetics. Central questions address the molecular basis of cell type identities, as they are regulated during immune cell differentiation, metabolic response, and epigenetic chromatin adaptation.

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany, has an opening for a Bioinformatician to start as soon as possible for an initial period of two years.


As part of a central bioinformatics unit, you will be working in an interdisciplinary team with close links to different departments, research groups, other core facilities (e.g. deep sequencing), and a large consortium of biomedical researchers (SFB 992 Medical Epigenetics). Your tasks will include

  • Standardized processing, quality control, and analysis of Omics data
  • Testing and maintenance of software solutions for integrative analysis
  • Development of novel computational methods for emerging technologies (e.g. single cell assays and long-read sequencing)
  • Help with experimental design and protocol optimization
  • Consultation and training of colleagues and software users


  • Academic degree or equivalent experience in bioinformatics or a related field (PhD is a plus)
  • Strong programming skills (e.g. Linux, Python, R)
  • Proven experience in software development, deployment, and workflow tools (e.g. Git, Docker, Slurm, Snakemake)
  • Detailed understanding of Omics technologies and big data analysis
  • Solid background in statistical data analysis
  • Fluency in English

We are looking for a motivated team player with strong communication skills and the desire to work in a dynamic environment. Prior experience in the field of immunobiology or epigenetics is a plus.


Located in a region that connects Germany, France, and Switzerland, our institute offers an international research environment with outstanding infrastructure facilities and a positive working atmosphere that places a high value on work-life balance.

  • Remuneration in accordance with TVöD up to max. pay group 13 if the collectively agreed wages and personal requirements apply
