Postdoc Position: Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy of dynamic Protein Interactions
We are looking for a scientist (m/f/d) with a PhD in biophysics, biochemistry or life sciences for research on dynamic protein interactions studied with liquid phase electron microscopy (LP-EM).
The Innovative Electron Microscopy group at INM studies protein function in their native environment of the intact cell in liquid using LP-EM. We are now looking for a scientist who will establish the method of time-resolved LP-EM, and who will study biomolecular interactions happening at the plasma membrane, such as growth factor receptor activation in cancer cells, and trafficking of virus particles to a cell. This research has biomedical relevance for understanding processes in diseases such as breast cancer and Covid19.
POSTDOC POSITION: LIQUID PHASE ELECTRON MICROSCOPY OF DYNAMIC PROTEIN INTERACTIONS
The project includes developing LP-EM methods, basic research on biomolecular interactions, studying biomedically relevant questions, and writing scientific publications. The project is integrated in the core research activities of the group. For our research, we use a state-of-the-art facility containing an aberration corrected scanning transmission electron microscope, a scanning electron microscope, and a fluorescence microscope.
The successful candidate has a PhD in biophysics, biochemistry or life sciences. The demonstrated ability to write scientific papers as first author is a must. A specific requirement for this position is knowledge of electron microscopy, preferably transmission electron microscopy. Experience with either research on membrane proteins, cancer, or virus infections are a plus. The candidate is a team player with an open mind for unconventional ideas, shows a strong motivation for science, and has excellent writing and oral communication skills in English, and proficient communication skills in German.
INM is an equal-opportunity employer with a certified family-friendly policy. We promote the professional opportunities of women and strongly encourage them to apply. Full time jobs can be generally divided.
