Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München is a leading research university in Europe. Since its founding in 1472 it has been committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching.

About us:

The "Genome Plasticity and Computational Genetics" group, under the supervision of Korbinian Schneeberger, focuses on plant genomics and the development of computational and biotechnological methods for genome sequence analysis. The group operates at two sites: the LMU Faculty of Biology in Munich, Germany, and the Max-Planck-Institute for "Plant Breeding Research" in Cologne, Germany. We are currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our team in Munich.

We are looking for you:

Postdoctoral Position in Bioinformatics / Computational Biology (m/f/x)

in Planegg-Martinsried

Your tasks and responsibilities:

Genomic changes play a significant role in phenotypic variation. With the advancements in genomic technologies, we now have the ability to reconstruct genomes with unprecedented precision and throughput. However, comprehensive tools for comparing fully assembled genomes are still in their early stages or nonexistent.

Our group has developed innovative tools (e.g., SyRI and plotsr) that bridge the gap between the possibilities of genome sequence reconstruction and the analysis of multiple genomes. We are currently seeking a motivated team member to help us reach the next level by developing and implementing new algorithms that unravel the gene space in multiple genomes.

Your qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in computer science, computational biology, or bioinformatics
  • Advanced proficiency in at least one programming language (e.g., Python) and Linux
  • Experience in handling next-generation sequencing/genomic data is advantageous
  • High level of proficiency in spoken and written English is required.

We particularly encourage applications from open-minded, creative, and self-motivated candidates who enjoy working in an international team.


Our multidisciplinary group comprises bioinformaticians, biologists, and biotechnologists ( Our scientific approach is driven by curiosity and closely aligned with our interests in new genomic technologies. We have access to a wide range of facilities (genomics, microscopy, high-performance compute clusters) and receive support from lab technicians.

Salary will be commensurate with prior experience and in accordance with the guidelines for public employees.

Also possible in a part-time capacity.

People with disabilities who are equally as qualified as other applicants will receive preferential treatment.
