We are seeking highly motivated and creative colleagues to explore how reversible redox modifications control cell cycle decisions. We employ cell biological and biochemical techniques with an emphasis on single cell imaging and protein interactions. Several ambitious projects are available and can be tailored to individual interests and expertise.
Applicants should have a strong expertise in redox biology ideally involving cell biological techniques and/or protein biochemistry. Additional experience with programing languages such as Python, Matlab, Mathematica or R is beneficial. English language skills are essential; knowledge of German is not required. The position(s) can start immediately or upon mutual agreement. Salary will be according to the German TVL scale. In case of equivalent qualifications, disabled applicants will be preferentially considered. PhD applicants will have the possibility to additionally apply to the Dresden International PhD Programm (DIPP, http://www.dresd...
Time flies! The Mansfeld lab is operating since January 2013 and so we have just turned 5!
This alone was a great occasion to gather together and celebrate. However, we also made toasts for Gabor's thesis submission, him securing the DIGS-BB Wrap-up Grant and Alena becoming the DIGS-BB fellow. In the meantime we threw darts and potted some billiard balls. What a night!
Late October and early November were full of reasons to celebrate! Dilyana has successfully passed her 3-year TAC. Also, Alena has presented her research and passed the examination on her 1st year TAC. All of it while Gabor, in the midst of preparing the manuscript and finishing experiments before sitting down to write his PhD thesis, has successfully secured his own funding for the next year by getting a DIGS-BB Wrap-up Grant. Congrats!
There was no way that these successes will pass without celebration so we decided to go out to a lovely vietnamese restaurant to get together and toast!
Joerg and Dilyana will join the EMBO Redox Biology meeting which takes place in Russia between 16th and 23th of July. Dilyana was not only selected to give a talk at the meeting but also has been awarded DIGS-BB Travel Award after giving an amazing chalk talk and outcompeting the other prospective grantees. Great job Didi! Looking forward to the conference/cruise from Moscow to Saint Petersburg on the Volga River.
Cindy spent amazing three months in our lab putting a lot of hard work into improving our CRSIPR/Cas9 knock-out pipeline. To conclude the project, Cindy handed in a written report and gave a presentation in front of a committee. It was pointed out by professor Gerd Kempermann that Cindy's report was exceptional, very informative and put together very well. After giving an amazing presentation, Cindy was bombarded with questions and defended her rotation project for a straight 1.0.
We celebrated winter and approaching Xmas by strolling through Dresden's Christmas markets. We had some Langos at Neumarkt, lots of great mulled wine at the Medieval Christmas Market and finally some more at Striezelmarkt. Real winter bonding!
