Now Hiring: PhD positions
(May 27, 2021)
The collaborative research center (CRC) Chromatin Dynamics is now calling for applications for doctoral researcher positions.
The research challenge:
The CRC explores the nature of dynamic transitions of chromatin organisation. It aims to understand principles and mechanisms that endow chromatin organisation with diversity, flexibility and plasticity to respond to environmental, metabolic and developmental cues. CRC research strives for an integrated understanding of chromatin structure and function, involving identification and biochemical characterization of enzymes and metabolites, multi-omic analyses and imaging of cells in diverse physiological states and during ontogeny of model organisms. See more about the CRC 1064.
We are looking for:
Diverse and highly motivated candidates with strong backgrounds in biochemistry or related fields. Your qualifying degrees should reflect talent and good understanding of biological and biochemical topics, as well as practical experience in experimental lab work. Candidates should have excellent command of written and spoken English.
Cutting-edge expertise in chromatin research, enhanced through support of core facilities in mass spectrometry and bioinformatics.
Doctoral researchers will be members in the Integrated Research Training Program (IRTG), a structured graduate program committed to supporting doctoral candidates in their research goals, in good scientific practice and in achieving optimal qualifications for future careers. Salaries conform to TV-L E13 (65%).
Please see the project descriptions, and then apply online. Our online applcation tool allows you to choose a preference for up to 3 projects. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2021.
