PhD Position in Developmental Biology and Mechanobiology

 Institut für Zellbiologie  48149 Münster
We are offering a funded 3-year PhD position in developmental biology at the Institute of Cell Biology, University of Münster, Germany.
 
Our lab investigates the spatio-temporal dynamics of cytoskeleton organization and force control during tissue morphogenesis in Drosophila.  In particular, we are interested in understanding at a systems level how cells regulate and coordinate cytoskeletal forces in different aspects of cell architecture and collective cell behavior.  Our research relies on combining new optical and chemical tools in conjunction with classical genetic approaches and advanced image analysis to quantitatively analyze how cells coordinate cytoskeletal force dynamics during morphogenetic tissue rearrangements and wound healing with a particular focus on microtubules.
 
We are looking for motivated PhD students with a background in fly genetics, light microscopy, mechanobiology and cell biology.
 
Applications should include a letter of motivation/statement of research interests, a CV, a publication list and details of two referees, and should be sent by e-mail to matism@uni-muenster.de.
