Biochemist, Geneticist – PostDoc Bacterial Cell Biology (m/f/d) (Berlin)

Postdoctoral Researcher (f/m/d) (Bacterial Cell Biology) he Max
Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens (MPUSP) headed by its
director Prof. Emmanuelle Charpentier is seeking a Postdoctoral
Researcher with excellent skills and knowledge in the field of
Bacterial Cell Biology. The successful candidate will work in the
sub-research group headed by Dr. Alexander Elsholz. MPUSP is an
international research institute of the Max Planck Society located
in Berlin. The institute was founded in 2018 with the mission to
strengthen fundamental research on pathogens causing diseases in
humans. MPUSP aims to achieve a better understanding of the
complexities of pathogens and their interactions with their natural
environment by developing innovative approaches. For more
information about the research at MPUSP, please visit: Website.
MPUSP offers an interactive and dynamic environment where our team
of international and creative scientists are provided ongoing
support to take on original research projects and answer
free-minded basic biological questions. MPUSP operates in a unique
mode of cooperation between the administration, management and
research. Our scientists benefit from a state-of-the-art
infrastructure, integrative and custom-designed research platforms
and a wide range of scientific activities. MPUSP emphasizes
personal development: junior and senior scientists at MPUSP are
engaged in research, but also take active part in scientific
education, mentoring and teaching, and in the management and
development of the institute. The institute is seeking a highly
motivated and talented scientist to join an international and
collaborative team in an outstanding and competitive scientific
environment. The successful candidate will carry out research with
the aim to understand the physiological changes that different
Gram-positive pathogens undergo during the infection process. By
combining cutting-edge technologies such as high-accuracy
mass-spectrometry, Next Generation Sequencing and single-cell
microscopy with classical bacterial genetics and biochemistry, the
candidate will analyze how pathogenic bacteria adapt to the
ever-changing environment during the infection process. The
successful candidate is expected to pursue research at the highest
standards and contribute actively to collaborative and
complementary research across the institute. PhD in Biochemistry,
Genetics, Microbiology and/or Molecular Biology A proven record of
successful publications in highly respected international
scientific journals Excellent level of English language
(presentation and writing skills) Experience working abroad is
considered as an advantage Friendly disposition, confident and
responsible work ethics Working independently and as part of an
international team Self-motivated and enthusiastic to work in a
competitive, dynamic, stimulating and interacting international
scientific environment focusing on basic biological research The
position is initially for 2 years with the possibility of an
extension. The payment level is based on the German state public
service salary scale (TVöD-Bund) according to the training,
qualifications and professional experience. The benefits correspond
to the regulations of the public service. The position is available
at the earliest possible date. The Max Planck Society is committed
to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its
workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified
individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase
the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented
and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck
Society strives for gender and diversity equality. We welcome
applications from all backgrounds.
