Candidates must hold a PhD (or equivalent) in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, or other closely related fields of the natural sciences. They must have a very strong background and extensive practical experience in at least one of the following fields: ageing, autophagy, ubiquitin/sumo-mediated signaling or degradation, cellular quality control, neurodegeneration, mitochondrial biology. A strong interest for multidisciplinary research is required as well as a very good proficiency in writing and speaking of the English language. The candidate must have a high degree of practical experience in laboratory work and experimental design in biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology; a strong motivation to solve scientific problems; and very good capability and high willingness to work in a team.
The position is available starting from the next possible date (ideally Oct 1st 2014) and is initially limited for two years. Extensions and establishment of an independent research group is a possible future option.
