The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (CBG) in
seeking outstanding candidates for an independent GROUP LEADER IN BIOPHYSICS.
Research at the institute focuses on the molecular mechanisms
underlying the structure and organization of cells and tissues. Further
information about our
research can be found on our web site (http://www.mpi-cbg.de).
In this search we are looking for applicants who are taking biophysical
approaches to cellular or
developmental biology. We especially welcome applications from candidates
working on mechanical aspects of the cytoskeleton, the extracellular
matrix or membranes.
A strong, interactive biophysics community has recently been established
in Dresden, and the institute offers an outstanding environment to study
cell biology in model organisms. PhD students are available through a
thriving International Max Planck Research School run in collaboration
with the Technical University of Dresden. The institute will provide the
successful candidates with a fully-equipped laboratory, support for a
postdoctoral fellow, a predoctoral student and a technician, and adequate
funds for consumables. The initial group leader contracts are for 5
years, renewable to 9 years, at the BAT Ia scale. Applications containing
a CV, publication list and research plan should be submitted to Joe
Howard at the address below before the extended deadline of October 20,
2004. Three letters of recommendation should be sent separately by the
application deadline. CBG actively encourages female applicants.
