Post-doctoral scientist (m/f/d)

full time - JobID: P0055V119

01.07.2020 searched for Pädiatrische Onkologie, Hämatologie und Immunologie / AG Prof. Muckenthaler to work at Zentrum für Kinder- und Jugendmedizin.

The position is limited to 1 year. With option of further extension. The salary is paid according to the German TV-L system (the salary agreement for public service employees).

Tasks and responsibilities
Our research focuses on iron metabolism and its disturbances in human disease. The major aim is to understand the regulatory circuitry underlying systemic iron homeostasis. We concentrate on the iron hormone hepcidin and its regulatory “target receptor” ferroportin. Since both the excess of hepcidin (leading to anemia) and its deficiency (causing iron overload) must be prevented, a central goal of our work is to decipher the control of hepcidin and ferroportin expression as well as the pathophysiological consequences of their misregulation. The advertised post-doctoral project would focus on understanding the basis of iron related disease.

A suitable candidate will have a proven track record of research accomplishments including first author publications in international peer-reviewed journals and excellent experience in:

  • molecular and cell biology techniques
  • work with murine disease models
  • cell culture
  • fluorescent microscopy

Beyond that:

  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively with colleagues from different disciplines
  • Fluent written and spoken English
We offer
  • Target-oriented individual further education and training opportunities
