BioPhysical Chemistry PhD Position @ Max Planck Institute Germany

BioPhysical Chemistry PhD Position @ Max Planck Institute 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. BioPhysical Chemistry PhD Position @ Max Planck Institute Germany

Ph.D. Student Positions

Job Offer from August 25, 2017

BioPhysical Chemistry PhD Position @ Max Planck Institute Germany

The Department of Cellular Logistics (Prof. Dr. Dirk Görlich) at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen invites applications for several Ph.D. Student Positions in the areas of“X-ray crystallography/structural biology, biochemistry, cell biology, protein engineering, recombinant antibodies, mass spectrometry, or biophysics”.

Our department

Our Department studies intracellular transport, the assembly of nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) and of entire cell nuclei, the permeability barrier of NPCs (a “smart” material formed by a phase separation process from intrinsically disordered FG domains), the mechanism of NPC-passage, and cargo-recognition by shuttling nuclear transport receptors. We employ a wide range of techniques such as in vitro nuclear assembly and nuclear transport assays, light and electron microscopy, x-ray crystallography, phage display, genetics, isolation of protein complexes, as well as mass spectrometry. We also pursue method development in particular in the areas of nanobodies, protein engineering, and advanced affinity chromatography.

Your profile

The successful applicants will join projects/develop their own projects in these or related areas. Ph. D. candidates should be team-oriented and hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in biochemistry, biophysics, biology, or a related natural science. The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry provides an outstanding environment for cutting-edge and interdisciplinary research at the interface between biology, physics and chemistry. The working language is English.

Our offer

We offer a 3-year contract with the possibility of an extension. The payment and benefits are based on the German public salary guidelines (TVöD).

The Max Planck Society is committed to increase the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Your application

Please send your application preferably as single PDF (including a short letter of motivation, a CV, as well as email addresses of two referees) via email to ausschreibung37-17@mpibpc.mpg.de.
