We offer an open position for a Ph.D. student in the Center for Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology in Goettingen, Germany. The position is initially limited for three years and will be financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

The research in our group focuses on the biochemistry and cellular biology of prolyl peptidases – a small group of enzymes that have the unique ability to cleave a peptide bond after proline residues. Members of this family have important roles in regulating the activity of peptide hormones, neuropeptides and the immune system. The aim of the proposed PhD project is to characterize novel interaction partners of prolyl peptidases, which we recently identified in a yeast two-hybrid screen. The functions of these interactions will be studied using multiple biochemical in vitro techniques as well as cell-based assays using human cell lines.
We are looking for a motivated and hard working and talented Ph.D. applicant who is curious and open for new challenges. A good understanding in biochemistry and experience in cell culture and molecular biology is an advantage. The successful candidate will join a young and still growing independent group in a stimulating and dynamic working environment with highly interacting groups and excellent research facilities. The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for female scientists.
