PhD student position in Cell Biology : Kreuzlingen, Switzerland

PhD position in Cell Biology : Kreuzlingen, Switzerland

A PhD student position is available in the group of Hesso Farhan, University of Konstanz, Biotechnology Institute Thurgau. Our group is interested in studying various aspects of signal transduction and their relation to cancer. For instance, we have recently uncovered the mode of action for the enigmatic pseudophosphatase STYX, which we showed to act as a nuclear anchor for MAPKs (Reiterer et al, PNAS, 2013; Reiterer et al, TICB, 2014). More recently, we have studied the signaling of the Rho GTPase family member Cdc42 on endomembranes and uncovered a role for these in cell polarity and tumorigenesis (Baschieri et al, Nature Commun., 2014). The successful applicant will enroll as a PhD student at the University of Konstanz and work in the Farhan group located at the Biotechnology Institute Thurgau in Switzerland.
The successful candidate must have a master/diploma degree in science (e.g. biology or biochemistry). Fluency in written and spoken English is absolutely required. Previous experience in confocal microscopy is highly desired.
Please send the following documents to Hesso Farhan (hesso.farhan@uni-konstanz.de)
