The Institute of Experimental Internal Medicine offers Postdoc positions (m/f/d):
Applicants who have a commitment to scientific excellence as documented by a strong publication record are especially encouraged to apply. We are looking for an energetic colleague with high interest in biomedical basic and therapy research, and solid background in biochemistry. We are interested in delineating mechanisms by which molecular processes (e.g. UPS- and NF-kB systems) impact on the pathophysiology and the development of inflammatory diseases, including cancer.
The research program of the institute encompasses basic and translational research studies, with a focus on clinically important intracellular signal transmission pathways, involving the assembly of protein complexes within signaling cascades and a variety of protein modifications with a special emphasis on the NF-kB network. For the comprehensive analysis of the regulatory networks in the cell, we rely on methods in Systems Medicine and mass spectrometry, and other innovative approaches. The molecules of interest studied in the process of molecular pathogenesis could represent protein biomarkers. Herein, exclusive proteins with a special emphasis on predictive indicators of disease are studied for therapeutic intervention and drug discovery.
The institute cooperates with national and international research institutions, and participates in a variety of coordinated programs funded by the German Research Foundation (RTG2408, CRC854), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the European Union. Further, the institute is member of the interdisciplinary Research Center “Dynamic Systems: Systems Engineering” of the Otto von Guericke University funded by the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt and the “European Regional Development Fund”.
The Otto von Guericke University wishes to increase the proportion of female academic personnel. Women are therefore explicitly encouraged to apply. Handicapped persons with equivalent qualification will be given preference.
Please send your application together with the usual documents (CV, list of publications, references, etc. in one file) via E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information please visit our webpage: http://www.ieim.ovgu.de.
