The Cluster of Excellence „MULTISCALE BIOIMAGING: From Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells (MBExC)” invites applications for a PhD student position (m/f/d) in biochemistry and structural biology
65 % | salary according to TV-L
The position will be based within the newly established lab of Julia Preobraschenski in the Institute for Auditory Neuroscience at the University Medical center. The goal of the lab is to unravel the molecular mechanisms underlying the multi-C2-domain protein family of ferlins, as well as their alterations in human disease. The focus of the project will be the characterization of the family member dysferlin, which plays a critical role in membrane repair and is linked to muscular dystrophy. To that end we will employ multidisciplinary
approaches, including state-of-the-art biochemical and biophysical methodologies and single particle cryo-electron microscopy.
We are looking for excellent and highly motivated applicants with background in biochemistry or structural biology. Cryo-EM experience is a plus but not required.
The Preobraschenski lab is part of the Cluster of Excellence “Multiscale Bioimaging: from Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable cells”(MBExC). MBExC is an interdisciplinary, cross-faculty research center of the University of Göttingen and pursues a novel research approach with joint efforts in modern bioimaging, in particular photonics, molecular biosciences, neuroscience and cardiovascular research. The goal of MBExC is to decipher disease relevant nanoscale functional units in neurons, sensory cells and cardiomyocytes with the long-term goal to develop innovative therapeutic strategies for disorders affecting the heart and the brain, or both.
Women are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants with disabilities and equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
Please send your application in PDF-format via email.
Travel and application fees cannot be refunded or transferred.
