For the Institut of Comparative Endocrinology (CME, Vettorazzi Lab) and
School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan, TU Munich (Greulich Lab) we are
1 PhD Student (m/f/d) - Cellular and genomic alterations induced by long-
term glucocorticoid treatment
Ulm University with its more than 10,000 students offers varied professional
tasks in a highly innovative research, teaching and work environment, at the
same time facilitating the reconciliation of work and family in many ways.

We seek to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and
particularly encourages qualified female scientists to apply for this
Severely disabled applicants with equal aptitude will be given preferential
We offer a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research project to study the
molecular effects of long-term glucocorticoid treatment in mice and men. This
position entails the analysis of multiple “omics” datasets and their
integration to decipher cell-type-specific glucocorticoid responses. The aim
is to develop approaches for therapeutic intervention to combat adverse
effects in patients undergoing glucocorticoid therapy. Through the close
cooperation between computational biologists (Greulich Lab) and wet-lab
scientists in the Vettorazzi Lab, any hypothesis will be directly transferred
to the bench. We seek innovative, curious, and team-oriented researchers with
a passion for computational biology and open science to complement our team.

and next-generation sequencing technologies.
You have experience with experimental work in the lab.
You have basic knowledge of R, python and bash. Previous experience in NGS
data analysis is a plus.
You are a curious and data-driven scientist that loves to develop
computational tools to improve science and science communication.
You are an independent thinker that might shape the project with his/her
You have team spirit and want to work at the interface of an
interdisciplinary research team.
The position will involve the analysis and integration of multiple “omics”
datasets to understand cell type-specific gene regulation. The successful
candidate will develop hypotheses to prevent glucocorticoid adverse
The successful candidate will be involved in implementing and
standardizing single-cell genomic pipelines and visualization tools.
The successful candidate will be part of the computational team closely
