Postdoctoral Position - physicist/ microscopy development - m/w/d

Stellenangebot vom 17.12.2019

The Department of Systemic Cell Biology (Prof. Dr. Bastiaens) at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Physiology in Dortmund is offering a postdoctoral position (physicist/microscopy development) to work in an interdisciplinary team of physicists and cell biologists towards developing multi-parametric molecular imaging of reaction states in signalling networks of individual cells in tissue-like 3D cell assemblies. Using these microspectroscopic approaches, we study how tumorigenesis arises from oncoprotein induced changes in the dynamical state of signalling proteomes, with the aim of uncovering new pharmacological avenues of interference with cancer development.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, inquisitive and creative individual with a degree in physics and a PhD that encompassed the development of optical instrumentation for quantitative molecular imaging.

The position is available immediately and is limited to 2 years with the possibility of prolongation. Financial compensation will be carried out according to the public service remuneration scheme TVöD.

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 gender equality and diversity within its workforce.

Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Applications should be sent to the hands of the scientific coordinator of the department, Dr. Astrid Krämer, email: in digital form (e.g. as PDF). In your application, include a cover letter, recent CV, and copies of your certificates and two names of reference. Please submit all documents in a single application until February 9th, 2020.
