Great career opportunities in our highly multidisciplinary Collaborative Research Centre “Magnetoreception and Navigation in Vertebrates

In SFB 1372, we are going to discover how vertebrate navigation and magnetoreception work. 15 different projects covering many scientific disciplines from quantum mechanics and biophysics via biochemistry, molecular biology and neuroscience, all the way to behavioral biology and genetics make up SFB 1372. To achieve our goal, we are looking to hire a team of highly motivated, skilled, and enthusiastic postdocs and Ph.D. students. We are in particular looking for:

• 4 postdocs (magnetic imaging, structural biology, behavioral biology, ecological modelling)

• 13 Ph.D. students (many different fields e.g. quantum mechanics, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, neuroscience, behavioral biology, and genetics)”

For more information about the individual positions and our working groups see www.sfb1372.de/jobs.

You will get the opportunity to make major new discoveries which will have the great potential to be publishable in the best journals (see our publication record www.sfb1372.de/publications).
SFB 1372 is hosted by the University of Oldenburg and includes colleagues from the Institute of Avian Research Wilhelmshaven, Ruhr University Bochum, Caesar Bonn, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology Plön, University of Oxford and Weizmann Institute of Science Tel Aviv. You will become part of a large diverse team working closely together on related questions and you will have access to a very wide range of superb modern equipment, techniques and expertise. In addition, we encourage you to join our graduate school offering soft skill and scientific skill courses and lectures as well a mentoring programme and support with career development. Family and scientific career are supported by SFB 1372 and all participating institutions. We actively support parents who pursue a scientific/academic career.

SFB 1372 and the University of Oldenburg are aware of the power of diversity. In order to increase the percentage of female faculty and staff members, female candidates with equal qualification will be given preference. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.
