We have an opening for an Early Stage Researcher (PhD Fellow)

As a member of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network “PEST-BIN”, our lab has an opening for one Early Stage Researcher (ESR or PhD Fellow) within the Work Package “Proteogenomics and phosphoproteomics of bacterial pathogens”.

The successful candidate will perform in-depth proteome and phosphoproteome analysis of project-relevant pathogens and develop adapted analytical procedures, use genomic sequences of project-relevant pathogens to call variants and create six-frame-translation (SFT) protein databases, use pathogen-specific SFT databases to detect novel peptides and map them onto corresponding genome regions to detect novel ORFs and validate them using RT-PCR.  

Benefits and salary
The successful candidates will receive a salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/). The exact salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is approximately an equivalent of 65% Tv-L E13 salary. The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and a family allowance (if already married). The guaranteed PhD funding is for 36 months.

Applicants can be of any nationality. PEST-BIN supports a balanced gender representation by promoting genuine equal access opportunities throughout the recruitment process.
Applicants are required to undertake transnational mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. At the time of recruitment by the host beneficiary, ESRs must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the date of appointment.
To be considered an ESR, at the time of recruitment by the host the candidates must be in the first four years (full- time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate (typically a MSc degree).
Applicants must have a diploma (or obtain a diploma before their employment starts) granting access to doctoral studies (typically a MSc degree).

Please submit your online application no later than 15 January 2021 to ulrike.grammigspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de. Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration.
