Structural biology/signal transduction/TGFbeta biology PhD project: Modulation of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling by co-receptors

Project Description

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated PhD student for a research project in the T.Mueller-lab at the Julius-von-Sachs Institute, University of Wuerzburg, Germany. 

The project deals with identification and characterization of novel co-receptors that interact with members of the bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) to modulate BMP signaling. The project is highly interdisciplinary and ranges from protein chemistry/structural biology to bone homeostasis and tissue regeneration. It will include bacterial and mammalian protein _expression_, crystallization studies, biochemical and biophysical analysis of the proteins investigated, cellular assays and high-resolution microscopy.


The position is fully funded for 3.5 years (50%, TV-L E13). The desired starting date is between 10/2019 and 01/2020. Further information on the research group of 

Prof. Dr. Thomas Mueller (https://www.biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de/en/bot1/research/prof-dr-thomas-mueller/

can be found online. 

The ideal candidate has a MSc degree in Biology/Biochemistry (or related) with previous MSc thesis research expertise in structure biology, and/or protein chemistry.


The University of Wuerzburg is an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications of qualified women and individuals with disabilities.

Applications are only accepted electronically as a single PDF file containing the relevant information (motivation letter, CV, A-level/BSc/MSc diplomas, transcripts of records, names of 2 references, and, if available, letters of recommendation). Please send them to the email address mueller@biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de

Applications will be continuously reviewed until the position has been filled.
