PhD in molecular cell biology / neural cell differentiation

The DFG Graduiertenkolleg “The development of integrative modeling and simulation methods for regenerative systems (dIEMoSiRiS)” at the University of Rostock and the Institute of Biological Sciences/Animal Physiology offer a

position for a PhD student in molecular cell biology / neural cell differentiation

starting from now. The overall objective of our group and the graduate school is to enhance the understanding of the role of the wnt signaling pathway during differentiation in human neural progenitor cells. Research will include molecular studies and quantitative single cell imaging to obtain data which will also be used to support model generation and validation by the systems biology partners in the Research Training Group. This PhD project should address the synthesis, turnover and interactions of wnt-receptors and wnt-binding proteins and their role in neuronal differentiation.

Applicants should hold a diploma or M.Sc. in biology or life sciences and have a strong background in cell and molecular biology. Knowledge of signal transduction processes, interest in systems biology and cytomics and especially basic knowledge and interest in advanced light microscopy techniques would be desirable. We offer the possibility to realize a project of high scientific relevance under excellent working conditions in collaboration with the well-equipped Live Cell Imaging Center of the university (http://www.biologie.uni-rostock.de/tierphysiologie/Institute/Mikrozentrum/). The successful candidate will have access to specialized equipment (such as DIC, video-, confocal-, live cell- and TIRF-microscopy) and will participate the interdisciplinary graduate program of the DFG Research Training Group "dIEMoSiRiS" (http://wwwmosi.informatik.uni-rostock.de/diemosiris)

The scholarship will be granted for 3 years. Address informal inquiries and specific questions to Prof. Dr. Dieter G. Weiss (Phone: +49-381-498-6301, Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).
