Description

The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Münster, Germany, has openings for Postdoc-position (m/f/d) in the department of Sara Wickström, M.D., Ph.D., Department of Cell and Tissue Dynamics.

Your tasks

Our research aims to uncover how mammalian tissues are formed, maintained, and regenerated through mechanochemical signaling and cellular interactions. Uncovering these regulatory principles will facilitate the development of regenerative therapies and more effective diagnostics and treatments against cancers. The successful candidate will join a dynamic and highly interdisciplinary research team in the analysis of nuclear and chromatin mechanobiology and its role in stem cell fate regulation. We pursue our research questions through a highly interdisciplinary research strategy that builds on stem cell biology, combining scale-bridging tools of bioengineering and biophysics, machine learning-based quantitative imaging, genome-wide analyses, and computational modeling.

Your profile

We are looking for a qualified and highly motivated Postdoc (m/f/d) with a great interest in stem cell mechanobiology. The applicant is required to hold PhD in biology, genetics, bioengineering, biochemistry, or a related field, as well as strong written and oral communication skills. The working language in the lab is English; no prior knowledge of German is necessary. Experience in cell biology and imaging are required, experience in computational data analysis and next generation sequencing is an advantage.

Our offer
  • temporary employment of two years with the option of a longer-term cooperation according to the Collective Agreement for the public sector (TVöD)
  • salary is in accordance with pay group 13 of the TVöD
  • the working language in the institute is English – but with the international and German team it is a great opportunity for you to learn German!

  • Childcare facility (U3) at the institute
  • Opportunities for internal and external training
  • Company health management (BGM)
  • Job ticket
  • 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.
