The recently established a Core Facility in Electron Microscopy and the Department of Infectious Diseases, Virology, of the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg offers a

PhD POSITION (TVL E13/2) in Electron Microscopy

Our group studies viruses at the cell biological level using electron microscopy techniques. The position is funded by the DFG Priority Program ‘ dynamics of cellular membranes and their exploitation by viruses’ (SPP1175). This program combines German-, French- and UK-based research groups that focuses on the dynamics of membranes using state of the art cell biological methods with a strong emphasis on EM techniques (http://www.virus-envelopment.de/).
Your task will be to study the membrane assembly of poxviruses predominantly using EM (Chlanda et al., 2009; Cell Host and Microbe 6; pp81-90). The work will be done in close collaboration with the department of infectious diseases (virology) at the university of Heidelberg that studies a broad range of viruses (HIV, HCV, Herpes simplex virus, Dengue virus; see Welsch et al., 2007, PloS Path. 3; pp1-11;Goffinet et al, 2009, Cell Host and Microbe 5; pp285-297; Welsch et al., 2009, Cell Host and Microbe 5;pp365-375). The candidate should have a masters’ degree or equivalent and preferentially a background in cell biology and/or virology. A background in EM techniques is major advantage, but not a prerequisite since an introduction to EM techniques and interpretation will be part of the PhD-training.
The university of Heidelberg offers a stimulating and interactive scientific environment at the internationally competitive level. For further information please feel free to call or send an email. We are looking forward to your application by email (CV, names and email of 2-3 referees) by April 26 2010.
