We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a diploma / masters degree in natural sciences to join our young and growing team as a PhD-student. The position is available starting from March 1st 2018 at the Department of Medical Biochemistry & Molecular Biology / Center for Molecular Signaling (PZMS) in the research group of Jun.-Prof. Bianca Schrul.

 

Our group is interested in the biogenesis and function of lipid droplets. These subcellular organelles dynamically balance the influx, storage and consumption of neutral lipids in nearly all cells of our body and are therefore central hubs in lipid metabolism. Lipid droplets are implicated in a range of human pathologies including hallmark diseases of our modern society such as obesity, diabetes, hepatic steatosis and cardiovascular disorders. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying lipid droplet biogenesis and function as well as pathologic aberrations in these processes remain largely unknown.

 

We employ a range of biochemical and cell biological techniques including in vitro reconstitution experiments, protein-interaction studies, organelle / protein isolations, CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing, RNA interference as well as advanced fluorescence- and electron-microscopy.

The candidate should have a strong interest in basic biochemical and cell biological research. Please send your application including a short cover letter stating your research interest, a CV and contacts for two references to Jun.-Prof. Dr. Bianca Schrul (bianca.schrul@uks.eu).
