PhD position

Two PhD positions are available in the projects “The role of the palmitoylation switch in activated T cells” and “Systematic characterization of phosphoinositide switches involved in T cell function” in our group. Given the established role of protein lipid modifications and of phosphoinositide signaling for T cell function we will employ novel chemical tools to acutely manipulate T cells. Using caged lipids and chemical dimerizers we will ask the question about the impact of the compositional dynamics of membrane microdomains for T cell activation. The project is embedded in the newly established collaborative research center between Berlin and Heidelberg with the overarching topic of “Molecular switches in the spatiotemporal control of cellular signal transmission”.
Candidates are expected to have a strong experimental background in protein biochemistry, cellular biochemistry or chemical biology. Since the projects are co-headed by the Freund group and principal investigators of Heidelberg University/EMBL the successful candidates are expected to participate in an active research exchange between the two centers. The intended starting date is August 2016.
Applications should comprise study records, the name of two reviewers for letters of recommendation, a motivation letter, a CV and are to be sent to:  lisa.rauch@fu-berlin.de and/or christian.freund@fu-berlin.de
