The Department of Systemic Cell Biology (Prof. Dr. Bastiaens) at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Physiology in Dortmund is offering a postdoctoral position (developmental biology/cell biology) to work in an interdisciplinary team of cell biologists and physicists studying mechanisms of tumorigenesis in intestinal organoids.
We are investigating fundamental mechanisms of oncoprotein induced tumor development by combining chemically induced optogenetic tools with advanced molecular imaging approaches that report on the dynamic states of signalling networks in developing multi-cellular assemblies.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, inquisitive and creative individual with a degree in life sciences and a PhD in cell or developmental biology and a strong background in quantitative microscopy to join our team that is interested in understanding how bidirectional cellular communication impacts cell fates in three-dimensional cellular assemblies.
The position is available immediately and is limited to 2 years with the possibility of prolongation. Financial compensation will be carried out according to the public service remuneration scheme TVöD.
The Max-Planck-Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
The Max-Planck-Society strives for gender equality and diversity within its workforce.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
Applications should be sent to the hands of the scientific coordinator of the department, Dr. Astrid Krämer, email: astrid.kraemer[at]mpi-dortmund.mpg.de in digital form (e.g. as PDF). In your application, include a cover letter, recent CV, and copies of your certificates and two names of reference. Please submit all documents in a single application until February 9th, 2020.
