The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) carries out basic biomedical research with the aim of understanding the molecular basis of health and disease, and translating these findings as quickly as possible into clinical application. The research involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as their prevention.
The main objective of our work in the group "Proteomics and Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases" is to understand the pathomechanisms of late onset neurodegenerative disorders such as Huntington's, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Machado Joseph disease and to develop causal therapies for them. The disease causing proteins of these illnesses have been identified, but their functions in the unaffected organism are mostly unknown.
Since the identification of interacting proteins can give clues about the normal cellular function of proteins, we use high-throughput functional genomic approaches for establishing large protein-protein networks.
In vitro and in vivo functional assays are developed for high-throughput drug screenings.
In the group of "Proteomics and Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases" we are currently looking for a Student Assistant (8h / week) that will assist mainly in general lab work including:
- preparation of buffers, antibiotics, media and agar plates
- distribution of liquid media into 384-well microtiter plates using a liquid handling system
- molecular and biochemical methods (e.g. PCR, DNA preparation, western-blots)
We prefer students in the 3rd and higher semester in a natural science discipline. The Student Assistant position can be combined with the practical lab work for a Bachelor, Master or Diploma degree.
Written applications should include only a short CV highlighting previous lab experiences and be send to firstname.lastname@example.org
