The group of Matthias Kieslinger at the Helmholtz Center Munich (Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology and Tumor Genetics) has identified Ebf proteins in the support of haematopoietic stem cells (Kieslinger et al., 2010). We use novel techniques in mouse genetics to further examine the role of these proteins. (For more information visit: www.helmholtz-muenchen.de/kmolbi/kieslinger/ ).
We want to strengthen our team regarding the role of Ebf proteins in the support of normal and malignant stem cells and are looking for a PhD Student
* Standard methods of molecular biology and biochemistry
* Experience in cell culture
* Experience in handling mouse strains desirable
* Study of Biology, Biochemistry, or a closely related discipline
* Strong interest in pursuing an academic career
* Ability to work independently and as part of a team
The position is to be filled by June 2011; we pay standard salary EG 13/2 TVÖD. The Helmholtz Center Munich as holder of the Bavarian Advancement of Women Prize and of the Total E-Quality Certificate is striving to increase the overall proportion of women on its staff and thus expressly urges qualified women to apply.
