A postdoctoral position at the Stengel Group at the University of Konstanz is available the earliest possible date (the starting date is negotiable).
We are looking for a doctoral researcher with a strong biochemistry background.
Experience in proteomics or MS-based bioinformatics are considered a plus.
The Stengel group is studying proteome organization and cellular compartmentalization by phase separation. To this end we are using biochemistry and bioorthogonal chemistry and are developing and applying novel integrated mass spectrometry-based approaches. (Boczek & Fürsch et al., eLIFE, 2021; Höllmüller & Geigges et al., Nat Commun, 2021).
Funding will be provided through an ASAP (Aligning Science Across Parkinson) grant. The project is part of an International Consortium combining world-class expertise in cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM), cryo-electron tomography (Cryo-ET), small molecule synthesis, proteomics, and single-molecule and live-cell imaging with the goal to understand the function of Leucine Rich Repeat Kinase 2 (LRRK2), the most commonly mutated gene in familial Parkinson’s Disease (PD) in normal and diseased cells.
Further information on the project and research in the Stengel Lab can be obtained here: https://www.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/stengel/ and https://parkinsonsroadmap.org/research-network/biology-of-pd-associated-genetics/
The University of Konstanz as part of Germany’s elite “Universities of Excellence” and the Department of Biology are among the most highly ranked institutions in Germany and provide a lively and academically outstanding research environment. Konstanz is a lovely historic town located on Lake Constance on the southern border between Germany and Switzerland.
The collaborative research environment in the Stengel Lab is highly integrative, very international, and operates in English. Therefore, the ability to speak German would be a plus, but is not essential.
The position is originally for two years and comes with a competitive salary and excellent health and retirement benefits.
Please send your application including a CV, references, and a short letter of motivation by Email to Florian.Stengel (at) uni-konstanz.de
