PhD Position in Cell Division and Bioimaging (Uni)

Institution: Faculty of Biology

Occupation date: At the next possible date

Application deadline: June 30th, 2020

Remuneration group: E13

Time limit: 3 years

It is a part-time job. (Number of hours: 65%)

The Ludwig Maximilians University Munich (LMU) is one of the most renowned and largest universities in Germany.

Tasks

Our group is interested in the molecular mechanisms that control cell division. During the last step of cell division, a process called cytokinesis, the mother cell splits into two daughter cells. When the chromosomes segregate in anaphase a contractile actin-myosin ring assembles underneath the plasma membrane. Contractile ring formation has to be spatially and temporally coordinated with chromosome segregation to ensure that the genomic content is properly distributed. Cytokinesis failure results in tetraploidy and supernumerary centrosomes causing multipolar spindles and oncogenic transformations. The aim of the PhD project is to delineate the molecular pathways that control cytokinesis in time and space. In our research group we combine the advantages of both the nematode C. elegans and tissue culture cells. As our main approach we use quantitative live-cell microscopy since it provides the high temporal and spatial resolution required to study such a dynamic process like cytokinesis. In addition to live-cell microscopy we apply a broad range of cell biological techniques including biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics and screening approaches. Our research group is part of the cell- and developmental biology department, which not only offers high-end instrumentation and laboratory equipment but also a highly interactive and international research environment.

Condition

We are searching for highly motivated applicants with a strong interest in fundamental questions of cell biology. Applicants should have excellent knowledge of cell and molecular biology and hold a master degree in life science.

Wir bieten Ihnen eine interessante und verantwortungsvolle Tätigkeit mit guten Weiterbildungs- und Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten. Schwerbehinderte Personen werden bei ansonsten im Wesentlichen gleicher Eignung bevorzugt. Die Bewerbung von Frauen wird begrüßt.
