PhD project: Regulation of the multiprotein complex CCR4-NOT

The Institute of Biochemistry (Medical Faculty) is inviting applications for a
PhD student (E13/2)
for the project "Regulation of the multiprotein complex CCR4-NOT". The position is immediately available for 3 years.
Project: The PhD project focuses on the regulation of the multiprotein complex CCR4-NOT and its impact on mRNA stability and gene expression including transcription, mRNA processing and translation. In this context, assembly and activity of the CCR4-NOT complex will be investigated in response to cellular stress signals (e.g. DNA damage) and its regulation by posttranslational modifications such as phosphorylation will be addressed.
A variety of different methods will be employed to understand the regulation of the multiprotein complex CCR4-NOT.
Your profile: You have successfully finished your Master or equivalent degree. You are highly self-motivated and ambitious and can work well in a highly active international research team, but also work on your own. Good knowledge of the German and English languages is necessary, also participation in the running  teaching program is expected.
We offer: The Institute (http://www.uni-giessen.de/cms/fbz/fb11/institute/biochemie/forschungbiochemie/agschmitz) offers the opportunity to work in an interactive and dynamic setting, is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and well funded. We provide a creative working atmosphere and have active exchange programs with many scientists abroad.
The university is an equal opportunity employer, and applications from women or candidates with children are encouraged. Applications of severely disabled with same suitability are preferred. Application deadline is end of September 2014.
Please send your CV, two names of reference and the further usual documents to
Prof. M.L. Schmitz
