At the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, we want to understand how the genome functions and how it is regulated, especially during embryonic development and disease.
A characteristic feature of our work is the combination of experimental and computational methods. We use numerous model systems, high-throughput and automated procedures. For data analysis and interpretation we use the tools that bioinformatics provide.
At the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, more than 300 employees and guests are working in over 20 scientific research teams, a number of service groups, technical services and administration.
Founded in 1964 in southwest Berlin, the Institute is part of the historic Dahlem science campus, which was established at the beginning of the 20th century as "Oxford of Berlin." Today, the Freie Universität Berlin, the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and numerous other research institutions are located here.
Our mission is not only to research but also to train the next generation of scientists. Are you passionate about understanding the complex network of processes that comprises a cell or even in the entire organism? Are you keen on working with cutting-edge technologies in molecular research?
