Postdoctoral research position - cell mechanics and wound healing at the Institute of Cell Biology, University of Münster, Germany. Postdoc Ref.: 10819 Full-Time (38,5 hours/week) (Germany salary grade: E 13 TV-G-U, 100 %) TV-L E13 Research Scientist
A postdoctoral research position is available to study the role of microtubules in wound healing using a combination of new optical and chemical tools.
Our lab investigates the spatio-temporal dynamics of cytoskeleton organization and force control during tissue remodeling. In particular, we are interested in understanding at a systems level how cells regulate and coordinate cytoskeletal forces in different aspects of cell architecture and collective cell behavior. Our research relies on combining new optical and chemical tools in conjunction with classical genetic approaches and advanced image analysis to quantitatively analyze how cells coordinate cytoskeletal force dynamics during morphogenetic tissue rearrangements and wound healing with a particular focus on microtubules.
Requirements: We seek applicants with strong core backgrounds in fluorescence microscopy (confocal, FRET, FRAP), biophysics and cell biology (cell culture HUVEC, transfections, protein purification). The successful applicant will have demonstrated excellence in one or more of these fields, and importantly an interest and ability to work across disciplines. Preference will be given to applicants who completed their PhD degrees within the past year. A demonstrated (with 1st author publications) track record of productive research experience is required.
Duration of contract: 1 year, extension is planned
Start of employment: 1.05.2016
Applications should include a letter of motivation/statement of research interests, a CV, a publication list and details of two referees, and should be sent by e-mail until 9.04.2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications of women are specifically invited. In the case of similar qualifications, competence, and specific achievements, women will be considered on preferential terms within the framework of the legal possibilities. Handicapped candidates with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.
