The Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences in Göttingen (https://www.mpinat.mpg.de/en), Germany, is a leading international research institute of exceptional scientific breadth. With more than 40 research groups and some 1,000 employees from over 50 nations, it is the largest institute of the Max Planck Society (https://www.mpg.de/en).
The Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics is inviting applications for a
PhD Student (f/m/d)
– Microtubule nanomechanics and turnover under cell-like physical constraints –
supervised by Dr. Maxim Igaev. The three-year PhD project involves massively parallel, atomistic and coarse-grained modeling to study the dynamic and mechanic properties of microtubule filaments subject to external forces by space constraints or other cellular factors.
Eligible candidates have strong basic skills in either or all of the following disciplines: computational (bio)physics, structural biology, statistical mechanics, and scientific computing. They hold (or expect to complete soon) a Master’s or equivalent degree in any of these or a related field. A keen interest in interdisciplinary research and collaboration with experimental groups is preferable.
What we offer
The group language is English, so no German language skills are required – but it is a great opportunity for you to learn German!
Payment and benefits based on the German Public Service (TVöD Bund) guidelines. The starting date is flexible.
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. The Max Planck Society strives for diversity and gender equality and welcomes applications from all backgrounds.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
Please submit your application including a cover letter (explaining background and motivation), a CV (with a publication list, if applicable), and transcripts (translated in English or German, if applicable) preferably via e-mail and as a single PDF file to: email@example.com
