1 Postdoc position (f/m)
(salary equivalent TV-L 13)
 
in Molecular Cell Biology
 
Qualified candidates with outstanding research potential are invited to apply to join the group of Prof. Hemmo Meyer. The project will aim at elucidating the molecular mechanisms of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in cellular processes that are relevant for aging, proteostasis and genomic stability. State-of-the-art approaches in molecular cell biology will be applied including confocal and superresolution light microscopy, RNAi, screening and proteomics supported by advanced central facilities on site and international collaborations. (Further reading: Meyer et al., Nat. Cell Biol., 2012, 14:117-23, Ritz et al., Nat. Cell Biol., 2011, 13:1116-23, Meerang et al., Nat. Cell Biol., 2011, 13:1376-82, Ramadan et al., Nature, 2007, 450:1258-62)
 
The successful candidate will hold a PhD and needs to have a proven qualification in molecular cell biology with an excellent track record. Moreover, he/she has experience with advanced light microscopy, biochemistry and gene silencing in a vertebrate system. Candidates will benefit from the international and interdisciplinary research environment in our group and at the ZMB. The ZMB in Essen integrates medical research at the University Hospital and natural sciences at the Campus. The mission is to elucidate molecular mechanisms of disease and to turn this knowledge into medical progress.
 
The fulltime-position will start as soon as possible initially for 2 years.
