Job ID


The Cluster of Excellence „MULTISCALE BIOIMAGING: From Molecular Machines to Networks of Excitable Cells (MBExC)” invites applications for a Postdoc (m/f/d) position in biochemistry and biophysics of membrane fusion

The successful candidate will work on the role of multi-C2-domain proteins in Ca2+ triggered membrane fusion using a broad array of techniques to study the structure and function of recombinant and reconstituted proteins as part of a collaborative effort with the MBExC. The work involves cloning, protein purification, in
vitro assays of membrane fusion, cryo-electron microscopy and tomography, as well as x-ray crystallography.
We are looking for excellent and highly motivated applicants with a strong background in protein biochemistry and biophysics. The ability to work in an interdisciplinary (combining molecular, structural, physiological, and theoretical approaches) and international team of researchers is required. The position is available for 2 years with
the option for prolongation.
The Cluster of Excellence "Multiscale Bioimaging: from Molecular Machines to networks of excitable cells" (MBExC) is a research center of the University of Göttingen.
The goal of the MBExC is to decipher disease-relevant nanoscale functional units in cardiac and neural excitable cells and to develop innovative therapeutic strategies for disorders affecting the heart, the brain, or both. By a multiscale approach the MBExC will uncover fundamental biological principles at increasing levels of complexity from molecular, nanoscale to network and organ levels.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, list of publication, relevant certificates and the contact details of possible referees.
