PostDoc positions

Post-Doctoral Fellow - Microbial Physiology: Germany

The Microbial Physiology Group of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology  is looking for a Post-Doctoral Fellow

Do you want to help us solve metabolic puzzles?

Research in our group is dedicated to discover new biochemical reactions, and to fundamentally understand microbial physiology and interactions of microorganisms in key elemental cycles. To this end we use state-of-the-art cultivation techniques and physiological approaches as well as (meta)-omics approaches. We are looking for a post-doctoral fellow with proven experience in in silico analyses of large omics datasets with a strong background in microbiological processes. We aim to use information derived from the analyses of genetic information to design growth strategies for uncultured and the so-called difficult-to-cultivate microorganisms. Furthermore, we will combine physiological and (meta)-omics data to determine metabolic capacities and interactions of the enriched microorganisms. We also encourage the development and pursuing of the own ideas of the post-doctoral fellow in the Microbial Physiology Group.

The position is offered for 3 years and the salary will be according to the German system for public employees.

Are you interested?

We are looking forward to receiving your application by 28.04.2019. Applications for this position will only be accepted via our online application portal. For further information please contact Dr. Boran Kartal (
