2x Master Thesis in Cell biology / Neurobiology / Biochemistry in an internationally well-known research lab (Qualmann/Kessels labs)
 
Topic: characterize novel cytoskeletal and membrane-modulating effector proteins involved in the development and plastic adaptation of the morphologies and function of cells.
 
The Institute for Biochemistry I provides a stimulating research environment with excellent technical equipment in a recently completely reconstructed building right in the centre of Jena - one of the top-ranking and most lively biotech and university cities of Germany (ranked 2nd in the career atlas of all German cities – right behind and chasing Munich!).
 
The aim of our internationally well-known research team is to gain a molecular understanding of how the cortical actin cytoskeleton and specialized proteins, which are able to modulate the topology of the plasma membrane, shape cellular compartments and entire cells. Such processes contribute to development, plasticity and function of cells and cellular networks, such as those formed by neurons in the brain.
 
We are currently studying several molecular players at the membrane/actin interface and are characterizing their role in both cytoskeletal and membrane dynamics. For literature providing topic and method overviews please see the following related examples of first-author papers of Master and PhD students in the lab:
Braun et al. 2005 Mol. Biol. Cell; Ahuja et al. 2007 Cell; Dharmalingam et al. 2009 J. Neurosci.; Koch (D) et al. 2011 EMBO J.; Schwintzer et al. 2011 EMBO J.; Koch (N) et al. 2012 J. Cell Sci.; Schneider et al., 2014 J. Cell Biol..
 
Applicants should have a solid theoretical and practical knowledge of modern biochemistry, cell and/or neurobiology and be interested in analyzing neuronal functions and brain organization and/or in deciphering and functionally characterizing protein interaction and modifications in cell shaping processes.
Projects involve advanced methods of fluorescence microscopy (time lapse, spinning disk, structured illumination....), molecular biology and modern protein/protein and protein/lipid studies by (quantitative) biochemical methods.
 
Candidates need to be distinguished by a high motivation to succeed in science and to work independently. However, it is also crucial to integrate into our team smoothly and to be a kind, efficient and reliable team-player.
 
Knowledge of the german language is not required because of the internationality of our group and of life in the young and vibrant university town of Jena. Fluent English, however, is a prerequisite.
 
Starting date: 2015 (flexible)
