PhD position in Molecular Cell Biology/Biochemistry

A PhD position is available in the lab of Prof. Dr. Ralph Kehlenbach at the Center for Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology in Goettingen, Germany. The project focuses on structural and cell biological aspects of protein transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm (for recent publications see Roloff et al., 2013, J. Biol. Chem. 288, 3952-63; Thakar et al., 2013, Mol. Cell. Proteomics, 12, 664-678; Frohnert et al., 2014, PLoS one, 9(2):e88887). For a brief overview of the institute and of our work, please visit our website (http://www.uni-bc.gwdg.de/index.php?id=306). We take part in the Goettingen Graduate School for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB), which is funded by the German Federal and State Government (Excellence Initiative; http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/56640.html). The project itself is funded by the DFG.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a degree (diploma/masters) in life sciences and a good understanding of biochemistry/cell biology. Experience in cloning, protein purification and/or structure/function analysis is preferred. Applications containing a cover letter explaining relevant work experience, CV, copies of final certificates (school + university) and contact details of two referees should be sent to: rkehlen@gwdg.de in a single PDF-file no later than October 22 (subject: JV 09-14, PhD).
The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for female scientists. Qualified women are therefore encouraged to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude for the position will be favored.
