Post-doc Position : Tumor Metastasis / Frankfurt

The Protein Aggregation Group of Dr. Martin Vabulas at the Goethe University in Franfurt a.M., Germany, invites a highly motivated biochemist to join the project „Metastability of proteins during tumor metastasis“ as a postdoctoral fellow.

The group is part of the Buchmann Institute for Molecular Life Sciences ( and the Cluster of Excellence „Macromolecular Complexes“ ( which strongly support interdisciplinary research and the development of cutting-edge technologies.

The project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Grant and is going to exploit biochemical and genomic approaches in murine models to address the role of the molecular chaperones in tumorigenesis. The project includes systematic modification of bacterial artificial chromosomes of the HSP70 superfamily members to create a panel of metastatic cell lines with regulatable amounts of the respective chaperones. Subsequently, these cell lines will be expanded in vivo and analysed ex vivo by mass spectrometry.

PhD in biochemistry with strong expertise in SILAC-based quantitative mass spectrometry and HSP70 chaperone biochemistry are required. For further details please contact Dr. Martin Vabulas (, Phone: 069-79842568). Please submit all your documents till 18.08.2015 as one pdf-file.
