Job Code: 2021-PostDoc-Biochemistry-1040

Job Offer from April 08, 2021

The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, in Dresden, Germany, is an international research institute focused on cell and developmental biology. Currently about 500 employees are working at the institute, where half are from abroad with 53 nations represented. MPI-CBG has twice been awarded the title “Best Place to Work” (Academia and postdocs) by the journal “The Scientist”.

We are offering a Postdoctoral Position in Protein Biochemistry.

About the position

The group of Marino Zerial is looking for a highly-motivated postdoctoral candidate with strong background in protein biochemistry to compliment a team of cell biologists with an emphasis on advanced imaging techniques and processing. The candidate will work in an interdisciplinary project that aims to study protein compartmentalization on the endosomal membrane using in vitro and in vivo techniques. These studies will provide important information on the structure-function relationship of endosomal proteins.

Your qualifications

The successful candidate should have a doctoral degree and documented experience in protein expression, purification and characterization, plus at least 1 first-author publication. A background in membrane biology, structural biology or biophysics would be advantageous.
