Postdoc Position in Molecular Basis of Protein Trafficking

We are looking for highly motivated post doc candidates, who are interested in protein and membrane trafficking. The goal of the postdoc project will be to reconstitute a novel sorting process of the trans Golgi Network in vitro. We are particularly searching for candidates that have a strong background in biochemistry, molecular- and cell biology (experience in structural biology would be advantageous). The candidate will apply inter-disciplinary methods in quantitative biology, biochemistry as well as structural biology. Members of the group have an excellent opportunity to use resources in the departments of Molecular Medicine and Structural Cell Biology.

The program provides comprehensive scientific trainings in a superb and vibrant research environment with state-of-the-art facilities. Laboratory work is supplemented by seminars, summer schools, elective courses, career development training and participation in national or international conferences.

For further details, please inquire to Dr. Julia von Blume (Group leader, Molecular Basis of Protein Trafficking),

The salary level will be according to TVöD (Bund) (public salary scale). The position is fixed term for one year with planned extension.

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. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
