Postdoc (f/m/d) for Research Group in the field of Bacterial Protein Quality Control and Regulation
Postdoc (f/m/d) in Protein Quality Control (Research group of Prof. Kürşad Turgay)
Prof. Kürşad Turgay, research group leader at the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens (MPUSP), is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with excellent skills,
knowledge and preferably with experience in the field of bacterial protein quality control and regulation.
MPUSP is an international research institute of the Max Planck Society located in Berlin ad headed by Prof. Emmanuelle Charpentier. The institute was founded in
2018 with the mission to strengthen fundamental research on pathogens causing diseases in humans. MPUSP aims to achieve a better understanding of the complexities
of pathogens and their interactions with their natural environment by developing innovative approaches
(https://www.emmanuelle-charpentier-lab.org). MPUSP offers an interactive and dynamic environment where our
team of international and creative scientists are provided ongoing support to take on original research projects and answer free-minded basic biological questions.
MPUSP operates in a unique mode of cooperation between the administration, management and research. Our scientists benefit from a state-of-the-art infrastructure,
integrative and custom-designed research platforms and a wide range of scientific activities. MPUSP emphasizes personal development: junior and senior scientists at
MPUSP are engaged in research, but also take active part in scientific education, mentoring and teaching, and in the management and development of the institute.
Prof. Turgay with his research group recently joined MPUSP. Prof. Turgay´s group focuses its research on bacterial stress response and protein homeostasis. Research topics
include e. g. stringent and heat shock response, the role and function of bacterial chaperone systems such as AAA+ protease systems and their adaptor proteins in protein
quality control and regulatory proteolysis, as well as general cellular mechanisms allowing the adaptation of bacterial cells to different environments and stress conditions.
Prof. Turgay's group applies a wide range of methods and experimental approaches based on biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology or microbiology, and cell biology. Prof.
Turgay's group is fully embedded within MPUSP and benefits from access and interactions with various research platforms providing support for state-of-the-art proteomics and
genomics experiments as well as the overall infrastructure and environment for biologists of MPUSP.
We are seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist who has prior experience in working with bacteria and demonstrated proficiency with some of the mentioned experimental
approaches to join the team of Prof. Turgay. The focus of the offered project is to perform research on protein homeostasis and stress response mechanisms in a bacterial model system.
PhD in biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, microbiology and/or molecular biology or related disciplines
A proven record of successful publications in highly respected international scientific journals
Excellent level of English language (presentation and writing skills)
Experience in working abroad is considered as an advantage
Friendly disposition, confident and responsible work ethics
Working independently and as part of an international team
Self-motivated and enthusiastic to work in a competitive, dynamic, stimulating and interacting international scientific environment focusing on basic biological research
The position is initially for 2 years with the possibility of an extension. The payment level is based on the German state public service salary scale (TVöD-Bund) according to the
training, qualifications and professional experience.
The benefits correspond to the regulations of the public service. The position is available at the earliest possible date. The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing 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. The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality.
We welcome applications from all backgrounds.
