PhD Position in Biology at the University of Kaiserslautern (Germany)
In our group we investigate processes how proteins fold into functional units within photosynthetically active eukaryotes such as the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Our aim is to shed light on protein biogenesis and quality control mechanisms by studying the role of molecular chaperones, co-translational acting factors and the protein degradation machinery in chloroplasts. These organelles are of especial interest as their proteome comprises nuclear- and chloroplast encoded proteins. Furthermore, plastids harbor essential and highly complex biochemical pathways that provide the basis for almost all life on our planet.
Our laboratory is excellently equipped and utilizes a combination of state of the art protein-biochemical, molecular biology and systems-biological approaches. Our department offers the possibility to apply modern quantitative proteomics.
For our highly motivated and friendly team, we are currently seeking a PhD student with a strong background in biochemistry, biology or chemistry. Please send your application with a short CV (in either English or German) and the details of two referees to:
