Research project

The research group investigates the molecular basis of human taste and odor perception, its impact on food selection and the role of taste and odorant receptors in non-sensory tissues. The open position is devoted to strengthen our activities at the intersection of taste and odor reception. The project involves the use of a well-established cellular assay to identify receptors activated by food-related compounds and to characterize key-features of agonists as well as receptor-specific pharmacological properties. The development of refined as well as novel assays for chemoreceptors will be another task of this project.

Your area of responsibility includes
  • Refinement, development and running of cell-based chemoreceptor assays
  • Generation of expression constructs, cell lines and intestinal organoids
  • Teaching of co-workers, students in laboratory techniques
  • Requirements

    The ideal applicant has

  • A PhD in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or a related field
  • Extensive experience in molecular biological, biochemical and cell biological methods (additional expertise in related areas is highly appreciated)
  • Ability to work independently and focused
  • Solid German and English communication skills
  • Organizational skills and is highly team-oriented
  • Work environment

    Together with internationally recognized experts, you conduct research aimed at improving foodstuffs and promoting healthy human nutrition.
