Streß-regulation of mitochondria: Basic principles and pathological relevance

This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

Our lab is interested in stress-regulation of mitochondria and its pathological relevance. We identified several pathways, which impact this stress-regulation and serve as potent disease-modifers in disorders associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.

In this project, we will identify and assess several novel cellular pathways on how to stimulate these disease-modifying pathways in model systems and describe their action spectrum on a cellular and molecular level.

We are dynamic group which is integrated in an excellent, collaborative and international scientific environment at the Institute for Genetics and Cluster of Excellence: Cellular Stress Responses in Aging-Associated Diseases (CECAD) at the University of Cologne. To complement our team, we are looking for a highly motivated

Ph.D. student (TV-L E13/2)

with an interest in the molecular basis of mitochondrial metabolism. Excellent research and training conditions and the opportunity to learn a broad range of methods while working on a topic highly relevant for translational medicine will be offered. The ideal candidate is a highly motivated, team-oriented student with strong interest in disease pathogenesis and preferably with a background in biochemistry, cell or molecular biology. Experience with cell culture and model organism experimentation, biochemistry or molecular biology techniques (e.g. cloning, overexpression, protein purification, site-directed mutagenesis) is advantageous. Candidates should hold a diploma or master's degree in biochemistry, biology, or related areas.

The University of Cologne is an equal opportunity employer in compliance with the German disability laws. Women and persons with disabilities are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.
