An interdisciplinary, DFG‐funded graduate training program (Research Training Group) RTG 2467 entitled “Intrinsically Disordered Proteins – Molecular Principles, Cellular Functions, and Diseases” will be established at the Martin Luther University Halle Wittenberg. The starting date of the Research Training Group will be June 1, 2019. The Research Training Group will focus on investigating how intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs), or intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) in proteins, fulfill their biological functions via interactions with binding proteins or RNA. Projects funded by the program will employ a broad spectrum of methods and techniques, ranging from biophysics to cell biology. The RTG will provide a comprehensive education in an international and scientifically stimulating research environment. Further information can be obtained at https://rtg2467.uni-halle.de/
Candidates should be highly motivated, be interested in addressing topical scientific questions, and good team players. They should hold a degree in a relevant subject (Diploma or Master degree in biochemistry, biophysics, biology or a related subject) and have a strong interest in the broad range of topics and techniques offered in the Research Training Group. Applicants should apply via the online form provided at https://rtg2467.uni-halle.de/ and indicate their preference for a specific project. The form can also be submitted as an email attachment to: email@example.com.
Applications should be submitted by March 31, 2019.
