PhD student positions in Molecular Medicine and Molecular Signal Transduction

Brain signaling in health & disease

Molecular signal transduction processes govern all cellular and molecular aspects of live, among many others the differentiation (Notch), proliferation (EGFR) or adhesion (Integrins) of cells. However, signalling deficits may lead to severe diseases and even death. The Molecular Signal Transduction laboratories have a  focus on the brain and study molecular signalling mechanisms that regulate healthy neural cells (e.g. neural stem cells) but cause brain diseases upon deregulation (such as brain tumors, stroke or multiples sclerosis). Our successful work has been published in well renowned journals such as Nature, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Reviews in Molecular Cell Biology, PNAS, Blood or Acta Neuropathologica. We apply a large panel of molecular biological and protein biochemical techniques, including animal models, and such offer you a broad technical training.
To join our energetic and experienced team we are looking for highly motivated young scientists to choose a project related to the topics described above. Your portfolio includes the studies of life sciences (e.g. biochemistry, biology, biotechnology etc.), experience in the lab and you are eager to work hard to establish your successful career in science. You are curious about molecular signal transduction in health and disease and you are keen to contribute to the cure of patients. We offer direct and constant supervision by the PI (Prof. Schmidt) and the senior scientists in the lab, as well as the prospect of working in a highly dynamic research environment.
Curious? …then submit your application as a single pdf (letter of motivation, CV, relevant certificates, Abitur and the contact data of two referees) to us. We are looking forward for receiving it.

About Johannes Gutenberg University

The Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz is located in the capital of Rhineland-Palatinate and was founded in 1477. With about 35.000 students it is among the ten largest in Germany. The University Medical Center is located on a close by hill on the area of an ancient roman fortress. A central research focus in Mainz is neurobiology, which is among others clustered within the FTN (Focus...
