PhD positions in Chemical and Molecular Biology


PhD positions at the International Max-Planck-Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology
Dortmund, Germany

The International Max-Planck-Research School in Chemical and Molecular Biology (IMPRS-CMB), a joint program between the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund, the Technical University of Dortmund, the Ruhr-University-Bochum and the University of Duisburg-Essen, is recruiting highly talented and motivated students.

The focus of our school is to understand how the dynamics of biomolecular interactions lead to the complex functions of biological systems. We study this question across several scales, ranging from the chemistry of interacting biomolecules, to the structure and function of molecular machines, to how the spatial organization of signaling molecules emerges from their collective dynamics. To do so, we apply a wide spectrum of techniques from Structural Biology (X-ray Crystallography, Electron Microscopy, NMR spectroscopy), Biochemistry (Mass Spectrometry, Systems Reconstitution) and Systems Biology (Quantitative Functional Fluorescence Microscopy). Understanding the behaviour of complex molecular systems is a prerequisite for manipulating the underlying molecular interactions in a targeted manner, e.g. for the development of therapeutic agents.

We are looking for candidates of all nationalities with

- a background in Molecular and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Applied and Theoretical Physics, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Structural Biology, Systems Biology or related fields

- an interest in pursuing interdisciplinary research projects

- an excellent academic record, previous research experiences and a strong commitment for scientific research

- a good knowledge of written and spoken English

Successful candidates will join top-level research groups and benefit from an integrated training program that includes lectures, advanced scientific workshops, complementary skill courses and career development activities.
All participating institutions are located in the Ruhr Metropolitan region, a vibrant, open and multicultural region in the centre of Germany.
Students are fully funded for the duration of their PhD.
