Postdoctoral Fellow (m/f/d) | Directed Evolution of Proteins

Young Researchers Martinsried
Neurosciences
Job Offer from October 07, 2021

The Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried near Munich conducts basic research in the field of development, function and diseases of the nervous system. The institute is part of the Martinsried Campus of the Max Planck Society.

The research group Tools for Bio-Imaging at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology is looking to hire a post-doctoral fellow (m/f/d) with an interest in protein engineering, CRISPR technology, molecular biology, and, more generally, in tool development and  neuroscience.

Our group has developed new methods for directed protein evolution in mammalian cells that are based on CRISPR/Cas genome editing enzyme.  While further improvements in the method need to be accomplished, this approach opens up numerous exciting possibilities to target proteins and signaling cascades for which the mammalian cell provides the relevant physiological context. 

Your profile

The position is best suited for an independent person who brings in a certain level of expertise acquired during PhD work. This should be documented by at least one first author research publication in an international peer-reviewed journal.  You should be a good team player, diligent worker, share our passion for science and have an eye for details.

Our offer 

The position is initially limited to a period of 2 years. An extension is possible depending on the course of the project. Your salary will be that of a postdoc (German public salary scale TvÖD13/14) and commensurate with your experience.

The Max Planck Society strives for gender equity and diversity. We welcome applications of any background. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more severely disabled people. Applications from severely disabled persons are explicitly encouraged. 

Your application

If interested please direct your inquiries and apply with a succinct letter of motivation, a CV and the names of two references to Oliver Griesbeck (). The search will continue until the position is filled.
