Open Positions

2 POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS

The positions are part of an ERC-funded project that aims to systematically uncover, dissect, monitor and manipulate protein redox interactions that give specificity and efficiency to redox signaling. A combination of genetic screening, redox proteomics and transcription profiling will be employed to unravel the organization of redox signaling pathways, their target proteins und their functional impact on gene regulation. The project is expected to yield fundamental insights into the specific molecular links by which reactive oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur species couple changes in metabolism to cellular and organismal adaptations regulating resilience and healthspan.

A PhD in biology/life sciences or biochemistry/chemistry, advanced knowledge of molecular biology, cell biology and/or biochemistry, and substantial laboratory experience are required.

The applicant should be highly self-motivated and be able to pursue research projects independently as well as in collaborations. An excellent written and oral command of English is essential.

Please submit your application in a single PDF file with CV, a letter stating research and career interests, transcripts of secondary school and university certificates, expected availability date, and 2-3 letters of reference. Please send your application to t.dick@dkfz.de. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

1 POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

The position is part of a DFG funded project that studies the role of hydrogen sulfide and mitochondrially generated hydropersulfides in cellular stress adaptation and chemoresistance. The project uses yeast and mammalian (tumor) cells as model systems.

A PhD in the Life Sciences and substantial laboratory experience is required. The successful candidate must be fluent in English, with excellent writing and communication skills. He/she should enjoy working in a team, and with collaborators.

Please submit your application in a single PDF file with a letter of motivation, a statement of research interests, CV, list of publications, transcripts of high school and university certificates, and contact information of 2-3 referees. Please send your application to t.dick{at}dkfz.de
