Ageing Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellow Job @ Max Planck Germany

Ageing Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellow Job @ Max Planck Germany: The Max Planck Society is Germany’s most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide. The more than 15,000 publications each year in internationally renowned scientific journals are proof of the outstanding research work conducted at Max Planck Institutes – and many of those articles are among the most-cited publications in the relevant field. Ageing Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellow Job @ Max Planck Germany

Ageing Biology Postdoctoral Research Fellow Job @ Max Planck Germany

The Max Planck Research Group “Cell Growth control in Health and age-related Disease” headed by Dr. Constantinos Demetriades, at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Cologne, is looking for a full time Postdoctoral Research Fellow.

Who we are

The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (MPI-AGE) was founded in 2008 with the aim to understand fundamental mechanisms of healthy ageing. The institute is part of a broad network of research institutions in the Cologne-Bonn area dedicated to research on ageing and age-related disease, constituting a vibrant and collaborative environment for research. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and excellent core facilities, to which the successful candidate will have access, the institute provides outstanding research opportunities for its scientists. At the moment, we host employees from 34 different nations.

Our research

The aim of the research group is to elucidate existing and novel molecular mechanisms of cell growth control, and to identify and functionally characterize novel growth regulators, focusing on their putative implementation as new targets for drug development. Our work combines high-throughput omics approaches (functional genomic screens, proteomic analyses), along with state-of-the-art molecular biology, biochemistry and high-resolution microscopy techniques.

We make use of human, mouse and Drosophila cell lines, to identify evolutionarily conserved processes and to address multiple fundamental questions: How is cell growth regulated in normal cells? How does its dysregulation contribute to the development of cancer and other age-related diseases? How do cells sense the presence or absence of nutrients to regulate growth? How is information from multiple diverse signals integrated to regulate cellular function? How are these mechanisms regulated in a spatiotemporal and tissue-specific manner?

Your profile

We seek highly motivated, ambitious, and talented scientists to join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment.

The applicant is required to hold a Ph.D. in biology, molecular biology, biochemistry or a related field, and have a strong track record of accomplishments, as well as strong written and oral communication skills. Prior experience in one or more of the following methodologies: cell culture, RNAi, CRISPR-mediated KO, confocal microscopy, protein and RNA analysis or previous work with mouse models is an advantage. The working language of the lab is English.

Our offer

The employment contract is based on contracts for the civil service (TVöD-Bund, Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst) and will initially be limited to two years, with a possibility for an extension after this period.

The Max Planck Society is committed to employ more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply. We also seek to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and especially encourage them to apply.

Your application
This post is available immediately, presumably starting in September 2017.Please upload your complete application documents as a single PDF file, via our online application platform/website.

Your application (job code 16-2017) should contain a 1-2 page letter with a personal statement describing your scientific accomplishments, relevant work experience and your research interests, your CV (including list of publications), and contact information for 3 references. Deadline for applications is the 7th August 2017.

Informal inquiries can be sent to demetriades@age.mpg.de.
