A six-year (3+3) research associate position is available in the Division of Evolutionary Biology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) with a payment scale comparable to a Senior Lecturer/Reader salary in the UK (Akademischer Rat auf Zeit (A13)).

The position:
We seek an experienced, service-minded bioinformatician with a proven publication record in evolutionary genetics and related fields (comparative genomics, population genetics, experimental evolution, molecular ecology). The successful applicant will help to manage local IT resources (~10% of the time) and actively engage in ongoing research projects. In addition, the candidate may develop his or her own research ideas. The position comes with teaching duties during the semester including lecturing, course administration and student supervision. With both the Graduate School for Evolution, Ecology and Systematics (EES and the European Erasmus Mundus Program in Evolutionary Biology (MEME you will encounter an international and highly motivated group of students.


The environment:
The successful candidate will be based in the lab of Jochen Wolf ( which focuses on evolutionary and ecological genetics of natural populations. The lab forms an integral part of the Division of Evolutionary Biology and takes an integrative approach to the study of evolutionary processes ( We apply a large range of methodology including fieldwork, population genetic modelling, large genomic approaches and experimental evolution.

Munich University (LMU) and Munich Technical University (TUM) are both recognized among Europe's premier academic and research institutions being consistently ranked among the top Universities worldwide. In particular the life science branch with its growing campus at the Southern rim of Munich offers excellent technical facilities and many interaction possibilities including the Gene Centre, several Max-Planck-Institutes and the Helmholtz Centre ( With the highest concentration of supercomputing in Germany the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre and its local partners provide access to state-of-the art computing facilities ( for genome-scale analyses. Munich is Bavaria’s capital, a vibrant, yet relaxed city with many traditions still alive and a high quality of living.

Ihr Arbeitsplatz befindet sich in zentraler Lage in München und ist sehr gut mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen. Wir bieten Ihnen eine interessante und verantwortungsvolle Tätigkeit mit guten Weiterbildungs- und Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten. Schwerbehinderte Personen werden bei ansonsten im Wesentlichen gleicher Eignung bevorzugt. Die Bewerbung von Frauen wird begrüßt.


How to apply:
Applicants holding a PhD degree in a relevant field are encouraged to apply. Teaching experience is beneficial. Applications including a statement of motivation highlighting your background and bioinformatic expertise, a CV and the contact details of at least two references should be sent as a single .pdf file to subject term ‘research associate’. The position remains open until filled.
