Post-Doctoral position

We currently have a post-doctoral position available as part of a project unraveling the mechanisms underlying chromosomal instability which is a hallmark of cancer cells. Our aim is to understand out how deregulation of centrosome duplication can lead to chromosomal instability using lung cancer as a model system (Cizmecioglu et al., 2010, JCB 191, 731-739; Bahtz et al., 2012, JCS 125, 486-496, Kratz et al., 2015 Biol Open 4:370-371, Brunk et al., 2016, JCS 29:2713-8, Shumilov et al., Nat. Comm, 2017).

Applicants should have experience in protein biochemistry, cell- and/or molecular biology. The position is available from July 1, 2018 but later starting dates are possible.
Duration: Initially for 2 years with an option for extension.
Highly motivated post-doctoral candidates should send their curriculum vitae, transcripts of records (from bacherlor and master studies) and names and addresses of at least two referees to:
