PhD position in Molecular Cell Biology

The Vader lab at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, Germany invites applications for a three-year, ERC-funded PhD position. We use the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to study how cells maintain genomic stability during meiosis, the specialized cell division that is essential for sexual reproduction. We are broadly interested in understanding how organisms manage the processes of DNA break formation and repair during meiosis. To study this, we use genome-wide analysis of DNA break formation coupled with genetics, molecular cell biology and biochemistry.
 
For the available PhD position, we are seeking a creative and enthusiastic individual with a passion for basic biomedical research. The successful candidate must have obtained a MSc degree in biology, molecular life sciences or a related field. Previous experience in yeast genetics, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics or cell biology is considered a plus. Candidates are expected to become part of the International Max Planck Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology (http://www.imprs-cmb.mpg.de)

About Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology

The goal of our research is to understand how cells maintain genomic stability during meiosis, the specialized cell division that is essential for sexual reproduction. Meiosis-specific events dictate the formation of haploid germ cells (gametes; sperm and egg in most species) from a diploid precursor cell. In most organisms, including humans, the reduction of chromosome number to a haploid...
