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.

Our research is centred around the question, of how non-coding regulatory mutations and structural variants in the human genome cause disease. For that we have put together a team of 12 Principal Investigators from such diverse fields as Clinical Medicine, Genetics, Biophysics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, and Machine Learning.

Our research is shared between three different Institutions at Berlin that are the Charite University Hospital, the Humboldt University, and the Max Delbrueck Center (MDC) for Molecular Medicine.

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 (https://www.regulatory-genome.org/)
