Germnay: Postdoctoral positions in Systems and Synthetic Microbiology at Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology
Description:The Department seeks to appoint highly motivated scientists from one of several research areas including: (1) Quantitative analysis of cellular networks in microorganisms; (2) Design of synthetic networks in bacteria; (3) Metabolic regulation; (4) Signal transduction and second messengers in bacteria; (5) Bacterial cell division; and (6) Mathematical modeling of microbial systems.
Eligibility:We seek candidates with a strong background in systems, synthetic or cellular microbiology, combining experimental and theoretical approaches to quantitatively understand bacterial cells and/or to design cellular circuits with novel functionality.
Duration:The positions are initially limited to two years but can be extended depending on performance.
The MPI for Terrestrial Microbiology and SYNMIKRO together form one of the largest clusters of microbiology research in Europe and offer stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment with facilities for genomics, proteomics, robotics, fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry.

As an equal opportunity employer, the Max Planck Society is committed to employing more individuals with disabilities. We therefore actively encourage individuals with disabilities to apply. We also seek to increase the percentage of female employees in areas where they are under-represented. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.
To Apply: Applications should be sent as a single pdf file by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your CV, the names and email addresses of three academic referees, and statements of previous research and future research plans (no more than one A4 page for each).
Deadline: Applications should be received by December 15, 2013.
