Doctoral Positions in Germany
PhD students (f/m/div) in the field of Protein Structure and Function • Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg • Würzburg
|Time Span||as soon as possible for 1 year|
|Application Deadline||28 Feb 2019|
|Type of Position||
|Field of Research||
|Description||The key principle of structural biology, namely that knowledge of the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules provides important insights into their functions, provides the rationale for our research efforts. Our structural studies are augmented with biochemical, biophysical and cell-based experiments to derive fundamental structure-function relationships.
The research group of Prof Hermann Schindelin focused on two areas: 1) Protein folding and maturation in the endoplasmic reticulum as well as the degradation of proteins via the ubiquitin-dependent protein degradation pathway. (2) Neuronal signal transmission via inhibitory neurotransmitter receptors such as the glycine and GABA(A) receptors as well as anchoring and transport of these receptors.
The salary for this temporary position is commensurate with training and experience according to Collective Agreement for the Public Service of German Federal States TV-L. Female scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. Disabled applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualification and professional achievement.
What we offer
The successful candidate will work in the Rudolf Virchow Center of the University of Würzburg using state-of-the-art technologies. We offer an international and multi-disciplinary environment with a strong expertise in the structural biology. Currently the research group consists of 10 members at different levels of seniority; post-doctoral scientists, PhD students, master students and research assistants. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to enroll in the Graduate School of Life Sciences in Würzburg – an international graduate program. The University offers practical support and advice to the successful candidate concerning administrative and practical matters relating to the start of your employment and the process of moving to Würzburg (Welcome Center). The Research Academy supports researchers in their individual science career.
Applications including cover letter detailing interests and expertise, CV, transcripts, and the contact information of at least two references, should be sent as a single pdf file (no more than 10 MB) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org until 28th of February 2019.
|Requirements||Highly motivated candidates with a Masters (or equivalent) degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics or chemistry and a keen interest in structural biology, biochemistry, and biophysics are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must be able to work independently and as part of an international team. Previous experience in one of the following areas, structural biology, biochemistry or biophysics, is required.|
