6 Positions for PhD Candidates
(salary grade E 13 TV-L, 65 %)
starting October 1st, 2018 for a duration of three years.
The international research training group “EvoCell: Cellular mechanisms of evolutionary innovation” aims at bridging the current gap between evolution and cell biology that is highly relevant to many fields. An interdisciplinary approach with complementary expertise in organismic, cell, theoretical and computational biology will take advantage of different model systems ranging from membrane vesicles (P1) over bacteria (P2, P3) and yeast cells (P4) to multicellular animal and plant eukaryotic systems (P5, P6). The participating groups provide a collaborative research environment including access to the state-of-the-art research equipment of the Center for Cellular Nanoanalytics Osnabrück (CellNanOS) and an association with the SFB 944 - Physiology and dynamics of cellular microcompartments. Successful candidates will participate in a structured training program offering scientific courses, training in transferable and outreach skills and participation in research symposia.
