Opening For Group Leader - Mouse Genetics and Biology - EMBL

 Job Ref: MR_00035
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).
The Scientific Programme of EMBL emphasizes experimental analysis at multiple levels of biological organisation, from the molecule to the organism, as well as Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology. Within this overall structure, the EMBL-Monterotondo Outstation applies a wide range of modern technologies to diverse problems of whole organism biology. Currently units address areas of neurobiology, genetics, epigenetics, cancer and developmental biology 
In addition to exciting colleagues, the EMBL-Monterotondo Outstation offers state-of-the-art core facilities including histology, recombineering/gene editing mutagenesis and transgenic services. We benefit from close interactions with groups in the Developmental Biology Unit in Heidelberg who use a diverse range of model organisms including fly, fish, annelid and mouse, as well as with the Genome Biology, Cell Biology and Structural and Computational Biology Units. In addition, many excellent shared facilities include high-throughput analysis including DNA sequencing, advanced light and electron microscopy and small molecule screening and mass spectroscopy. We have access to the full spectrum of research activities available at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI-Hinxton), and structural biology expertise at the Hamburg and Grenoble Outstations. 
EMBL offers a highly collaborative, uniquely international culture. It fosters top quality, interdisciplinary research by promoting a vibrant environment consisting of young independent research groups with access to outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The EMBL research environment is particularly attractive for researchers with families and EMBL strongly encourages applications from female researchers.                                                                                                                                                                    
EMBL is searching for a Group Leader to head up an independent research group in the EMBL-Monterotondo Outstation in Rome. We seek dynamic interactive individuals with an excellent track record and demonstrable experience or interest in the general area of mouse genetics and biology, and a desire to join a multidisciplinary environment. We encourage applications from scientists working on diverse questions relating to mammalian organismal biology which would benefit from the mouse as an experimental system and the use of modern genetic and genomic approaches.
Further information about research in the Mouse Biology Unit and EMBL can be found at the EMBL web page.
