Research Associate / Postdoc in Institute of Genetics, Chair of Systems Biology and Genetics Technical University Dresden, Faculty of Biology Germany

Faculty of Biology

The Institute of Genetics, Chair of Systems Biology and Genetics (Prof. Christian Dahmann)

offers a position as

Research Associate / Postdoc

(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
starting at the next possible date. The position is limited for two years with the possibility of an
extension afterwards. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research
Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG).

Tasks: In this DFG-funded project, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying epithelial
morphogenesis in animal development will be explored. Using Drosophila as a model organism,
the role of the extracellular matrix and the actin cytoskeleton during the elongation of the follicle
epithelium will be analysed using genetic and cell biological methods. Moreover, cell behaviour
during this morphogenetic process will be investigated using modern microscopic techniques
(e.g. live imaging, SPIM) and computer assisted quantitative image analysis.

Requirements: excellent university degree and PhD in the field of Biology, Biochemistry or a
related subject; strong knowledge in molecular genetics and cell biology; strong interest in
developmental biology; very good English skills. Experience with confocal microscopy and
Drosophila is desirable.

Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
