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.dresden-ipp.de/).
Applications should be sent to Jörg Mansfeld by email and include a letter of motivation detailing research interests, expertise, and career aims; CV; copies of university certificates, and the contact information of at least two references.
The Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC) at the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) of the Technische Universität Dresden (www.biotec.tu-dresden.de) is an international interdisciplinary research institute developing innovative technologies and approaches for basic and applied research in the modern life sciences, with particular strengths in molecular cell- and developmental biology, physical biology, and computational biology. Eleven state-of-the-art facilities including light microscopy, deep sequencing, microstructure and mass spectrometry provide an excellent environment for research. We are integrated into the Dresden research campus (e.g., the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden, the Center of Innovation Competence B-CUBE, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and the Medical Faculty, as well as the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics), a stimulating international research environment and maintain several active national and international collaborations.
