1 Postdoc Position in Nano-Immunology
The Centre for Biological Signalling Studies BIOSS in Freiburg, Germany, is offering a postdoctoral position in Immunobiology and Receptor Studies in the laboratory of Molecular Immunology (Head: Prof. Dr. Michael Reth). This position is available initially for 2 years with the possibility of extension. BIOSS is a cluster of excellence at the University of Freiburg. The working language is English.
Your tasks: With Fab-PLA we have developed a new method to analyze the organization of membrane proteins and receptors in the 10-20 nm distances (Klasener et al. (2014). Elife 3: e02069). We want to explore the nanoscale organization of the major receptors on B lymphocytes and their mode of activation and are therefore seeking exceptional and highly motivated candidates.
Your qualification: The applicant should have a PhD and research experience in Molecular Biology, Immunology or Biochemistry. Prior experiences in receptor studies or superresolution technologies are advantageous. The ideal candidate should have a strong publication record, be able to provide evidence of his/her ability to work in a team as well as some experience in the supervision of graduate students or master students.
Please submit to the BIOSS office your complete application documents including a statement of research interests, a CV and 2 reference letters together with your earliest starting date as one single PDF-file (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for application is 30.09.2014For more information about the BIOSS research program and facilities see: www.bioss.uni-freiburg.de
Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preference. The University of Freiburg seeks to increase the number of women in science in areas where they are underrepresented. We therefore explicitly encourage qualified women to apply. A child care facility is available next to the research building at the Faculty of Biology.
