In the group of Plant Physiology (Prof. Ekkehard Neuhaus) at the Department of Biology, Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the following part-time position (limited to 4 years) is available:

PhD student (m/f/d)

The DFG Transregio Collaborative Research Center “The Green Hub” explores how plants manage to adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions, such as temperature changes and changes in light intensities. The Green Hub is an association of six plant scientists from Kaiserslautern with colleagues from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam. The main goal of the research is to decipher the adaptation strategies of plants at a molecular level. In particular, we intend to understand how plants can withstand extreme conditions and how we can use this knowledge to improve crop plants in a more targeted manner.

Your responsibilities:

  • Planning, implementation and evaluation of plant physiological experiments to identify factors which integrate and modulate plant adaptation to abiotic environmental factors (light, cold, heat)
  • Participation in national and international research projects within the framework of TRR175
  • Presentations at national and international congresses
  • Publications in international journals

Our requirements are:

  • Scientific university degree (master’s, diploma or comparable) in a natural science subject (biology, plant physiology, botany)
  • Previous experience in experimental laboratory work (from Bachelor / Master thesis)
  • Great interest in plant sciences and a high level of research motivation
  • Very good written and spoken English skills

We offer:

  • varied and fascinating areas in current plant physiological research
  • state of the art physiological, biochemical and molecular methods, a versatile and varied occupation and a pleasant working atmosphere in a committed team
  • Membership in the DFG research consortium “TRR 175 The Green Hub – Central Coordinator of Acclimation in Plants” (Berlin, Potsdam, Munich, Kaiserslautern)
  • Opportunity for a PhD
  • Salary according to the collective agreement for the civil service of the federal states (E 13 TV-L 65%, part-time)
    additional pension scheme (VBL)
  • Discounted ticket for public transport (job ticket)
  • Corporate Health Management

Please send your application until October 31, 2020 via E-Mail to: neuhaus@rhrk.uni-kl.de

PhD position (Medical Biochemistry & Molecular Biology): Biogenesis and Function of Lipid Droplets

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to join our young and growing team as a PhD student.

The position is immediately available at the
Department of Medical Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Center for Molecular Signaling (PZMS)
at Saarland University
in the research group of
Jun.-Prof. Dr. Bianca Schrul.

Our research group is interested in the biogenesis and function of lipid droplets. These subcellular organelles dynamically balance the influx, storage and consumption of neutral lipids in nearly all cells of our body and are therefore central hubs in lipid metabolism. Lipid droplets are implicated in a range of human pathologies including hallmark diseases of our modern society such as obesity, diabetes, hepatic steatosis and cardiovascular disorders. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying lipid droplet biogenesis and function as well as pathologic aberrations in these processes remain largely unknown. Projects in our lab address the following questions:

• What are the molecular mechanisms underlying protein targeting and insertion into the limiting membrane of lipid droplets?
• How is lipid droplet biogenesis from the endoplasmic reticulum membrane regulated?
• How do lipid droplets communicate with other lipid metabolizing organelles to adapt to metabolic changes?

We employ a range of biochemical and cell biological techniques including in vitro reconstitution experiments, protein-interaction studies, organelle / protein isolations, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing, RNA interference as well as advanced fluorescence and electron microscopy.

Further information and publications can be found on our website:

Qualification profile
We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with the following qualifications:
– excellent Diploma / M.Sc. degree in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or a related discipline
– strong interest in basic Biochemical and Cell Biological research
– excellent communication skills
– fluent English (oral and written) is essential
– German language skills are desired

Benefits
– Our young research team is integrated in an interdisciplinary and diverse research environment offering state-of-the-art technology and excellent scientific exchange.
– Further training opportunities are provided by Saarland University´s Graduate Centre GradUS.
– The position is immediately available for the duration of 3 years with the possibility of extension.

Please send your application including a short cover letter stating your research interests, a CV, degree certificates and contacts for two references via e-mail to Jun.-Prof. Dr. Bianca Schrul: bianca.schrul@uks.eu
