Post-doc position (E13 TV-G-U)
on the topic “Cysteine metabolic rewiring in vascular aging and regeneration”.
The position is available from 01.07.2021 for a period of 2 years with the possibility of prolongation. The position is advertised within the framework of a project funded by the German Research Foundation (Emmy Noether Programme), which deals with the consequences of cysteine metabolism in vascular ageing and regeneration (see Circulation. 2019;139:101-114 and Circulation. 2021;143:935-948).
The position requires the following:
• Participation in a research project focusing on understanding the sulfur metabolic flux of cysteine in endothelial cells.
• The successful candidate will use mass spectrometry to investigate RNA and protein modifications linked to cysteine-derived sulfur and their effects on vascular aging and regeneration.
• Collection of experimental data, analysis and documentation of results and preparation of material for publication.
• A thematic high-level project in an internationally recognized group, which is part of the Vascular Research Center Frankfurt.
• Rooms, housed in a new research building, with modern facilities and analysis possibilities from integrative physiology to mass spectroscopy.
• National and international networking – The Institute is part of the DFG Cluster of Excellence “CardioPulmonary Institute” and the German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK).
• A completed, very good PhD in biology, biotechnology, molecular medicine or an equivalent discipline.
• Experience in studying RNA and/or protein modifications with mass spectrometry.
• Experience in bioinformatics is advantageous.
• Good self-organization and team working abilities.
• While German is not necessary, excellent written and spoken English is required.
Applications with the usual documents (in a single PDF file) and the names and contact details of 3 referees should be submitted in electronic form to Prof. Sofia-Iris Bibli (firstname.lastname@example.org).
