Position Description

We are looking for 7 PhD students and 3 Postdoctoral researchers to complete the teams of our newly funded DFG-Research Unit Beyond the exome, which aims to identify, analyze, and predict the disease potential of non-coding DNA variants in patients with rare genetic diseases.
Applicants should be willing to work in a highly interdisciplinary research environment and be able to communicate ideas across classic subject boundaries.

The formal PhD training of our PhD students will be associated with the training program of the Berlin-Duke International Research Training group Dissecting and Re-engineering the Regulatory Genome (IRTG 2403) at Humboldt University Berlin and the Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine (
