Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Cell Biology (m/f/d, 100%, E13)

Interfaculty Institute of Cell Biology

Bewerbungsfrist: 31.08.2019

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc to join a young and growing lab

- three year position at 100% E13 German payscale - 

Our research: How do cells coordinate metabolism, growth and cell division?

In the model organism budding yeast we investigate how cellular signaling ensures that biochemistry and physiology of the cell are coordinated; for example, how resources are allocated appropriately during growth and division. http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/molcellbio 

This project: This DFG funded project will investigate the cross-talk between CDK and PKA signaling to understand how the cell coordinates metabolic fluxes with cell cycle progression. The broad method spectrum will include in vivo and in vitro biochemistry, quantitative phenotyping by microscopy, analytical  HPLC, and proteomics in collaboration with our facility. 

Who should apply? We are looking to fill the postdoc position in early 2020, but the start date is flexible. Our work is interdisciplinary so we can accommodate candidates with various life science backgrounds. For this project we expect experience in at least one of the following: yeast physiology/genetics, metabolism, protein biochemistry, proteomics, or live cell imaging. Our lab language is English. Your application should include a CV, specific motivation letter, abstract of your thesis and names of at least two references. Application deadline is Aug 31st 2019.

Interested? Please contact Jun.-Prof. Dr. Jennifer Ewald: jennifer.ewaldspam prevention@ifiz.uni-tuebingen.de
