Wissenschaft

The Rudolf Virchow Center for Integrative and Translational Bioimaging (RVZ) is a research center of the University of Würzburg, Germany situated at the heart of the medical campus of the University Hospital. It has a strong focus on biomedical imaging in the widest sense, ranging from the atomic and molecular scale to the tissue and organ level. Scientists at the RVZ use state-of-the-art technologies to investigate proteins that regulate key cellular functions with the overall aim to advance our understanding of the aetiology, diagnosis or treatment of diseases.

We are inviting applications for a

Group Leader (f/m/d) in Chemical Biology

Appointments will be for a period of six years (3+3). The remuneration package comprises a competitive salary (according to salary agreement TV-L), a comprehensive pension scheme, medical, educational and other social benefits, as well as financial support for relocation and installation, including your family, and the availability of an excellent child care facility on campus.

Your role

You will lead a research group to pursue highly ambitious and original research in chemical biology, e.g. with a focus on new fluorescent labelling techniques for super-resolution fluorescence imaging, the study of protein-protein or protein-ligand interactions or the modulation of protein function with high spatiotemporal resolution, to support the overall research focus of the center. Research activities should ideally complement ongoing activities in the center and at the university such as the DFG Collaborative Research Center/Transregio 240 “Platelets” and the DFG Research Training Groups 2243 “Ubiquitylation” and 2157 “3D Infect” as well as future translational imaging initiatives.
In general, the RVZ appoints group leaders early in their career and provides them with a supportive, collaborative environment and generous work package for their independent position. Significant core funding and limited teaching responsibilities will allow you to embark on a visionary research program.

You have

The successful candidate will present a highly original and ambitious research plan that concisely describes the background and status of the questions to be addressed, the experimental strategies and methods that will be employed as well as the ultimate goals. A PhD degree in the Natural Sciences is expected.

Why join us

The RVZ is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to an internationally leading biomedical research institute with a very collegial and family-friendly working environment. We are embedded in a stimulating environment that includes the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research, the Max Planck Research Group in Systems Immunology, the Biocenter, the Institute for Molecular Infection Biology, and the University Hospital in Würzburg. The university furthermore offers comprehensive services concerning administrative and practical matters, e.g. the Welcome Centre (moving to Würzburg), the International Office, the Family Services as well as the JMU Research Academy (professional support and development - see www.uni-wuerzburg.de/en/rvz/news/jobs-and-career/). The RVZ is committed to achieving gender balance and strongly encourages applications from women. Disabled applicants will be considered preferentially in case of equivalent qualifications. The appointment will be based on merit alone.

Scientists who have earned international recognition should submit their application including a CV, list of publications, copies of five key publications, and a 2-page research plan until March 15, 2021 via email to:

A PhD Position on "Structural and biochemical characterization of inhibitory postsynaptic specializations" is available in the group of Prof. Dr. Schindelin

Neurotransmitter receptors are anchored to the cytoskeleton with the aid of scaffolding proteins. At inhibitory synpases the protein gephyrin acts as central scaffolding component by bridging glycine and GABAA receptors and cytoskeletal elements. The Schindelin Iab is interested in gephyrin (Maric et al., Nature Comm. 5, 5767 (2014), Kasaragod et al., Neuron 101, 673-689 (2019)) and other aspects of inhibitory synapse formation and modulation (Soykan et al., EMBO J. 33, 2113-2133 (2014), Kasaragod et al., PNAS USA, E-pub ahead of print (2020)).

Highly motivated candidates with a Masters (or equivalent) degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics or chemistry, and a keen interest in structural biology, biochemistry, and biophysics are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must be able to work independently and as part of an international team. Previous experience in one of the following areas, structural biology, biochemistry or biophysics, is required.

lnterested candidates should E-mail an application including a cover Ietter detailing their interests and expertise, their CV, transcripts, and the contact information of at least two references. The PhD students will be part of the Graduate School of Life Sciences. Salary will be according to the collective bargaining agreement (TV-L, 0.65 x E13). Disabled applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualifications.

2 PhD Positions (f/m/d) investigating the

“The functional and molecular architecture of the CAK complex” are available in the group of Prof. Dr. Kisker

The general transcription factor II H (TFIIH) plays a central role in both RNA Polymerase II (RNA Pol II) dependent transcription and nucleotide excision repair (NER). The CDK7, MAT1, and CyclinH subunits constitute the cylin-activated kinase (CAK) module, a kinase complex that is crucially involved in promoter clearance, proximal pausing, co-transcriptional chromatin modification, and termination and thus essential to RNA Pol II based transcription. For reference see Peissert et al., PNAS 2020.

Highly motivated candidates with a Masters (or equivalent) degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics or chemistry and a keen interest in structural biology, biochemistry, and biophysics are strongly encouraged to apply. The positions can be filled as soon as possible. Successful applicants should be able to work independently and as part of an international team. Previous experience in one of the following areas, structural biology, biochemistry or biophysics, is required.

Interested candidates should E-mail an application including a cover letter detailing their interests and expertise, their CV, transcripts, and the contact information of at least two references. The position holders will be part of the Graduate School of Life Sciences. Salary will be according to the collective bargaining agreement (TV-L, 65%). Disabled applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualifications.

Studentische Hilfskräfte

Studentische Hilfskräfte (m/w/d) im Schülerlabor "Virchowlab"

Wir suchen ab sofort Studenten (m/w) der Biologie, Biomedizin, Biochemie, Lehramt Biologie o.ä. mit Laborerfahrung, die mittwochs und/oder donnerstags von 9:00-15:30 Uhr Schüler im Schülerlabor bei naturwissenschaftlichen Experimenten anleiten

Das "Virchowlab" will Schulen in der naturwissenschaftlichen Ausbildung unterstützen und durch lehrplanvertiefendes Experimentieren das Interesse an Naturwissenschaften fördern. Dazu können sie in CSI Würzburg dem „Labor-Mörder“ auf die Fährte kommen, grüne Proteine isolieren, lernen, wie schnell sich Infektionen verbreiten.

Als Betreuer/in unterstützen Sie die Kinder bzw. Schüler beim Experimentieren, erarbeiten mit ihnen zusammen die Hintergründe der Versuche und erzählen ihnen, wie das Forscherleben aussieht. Sie bereiten die Versuche vor und nach.
Die Stellen können für ein oder zwei Semester angenommen werden, Verlängerungen sind möglich. Insgesamt sind es mehrere Betreuer, so dass die Betreuungszeiten mit dem Studium abgestimmt werden können. Es besteht auch die Möglichkeit bei längerer Betreuerzeit eventuell ECTS-Punkte für die Schlüsselqualifikation zu bekommen.

Das Schülerlabor bietet Ihnen eine hervorragende Möglichkeit praktische Laborerfahrungen zu sammeln. Ein nicht zu unterschätzendes Plus bei späteren Bewerbungen.

Sie trauen sich zu, mit Schülern umzugehen und haben Lust, ihnen zu zeigen, dass Forschung Spaß macht? Ihr Semesterplan hat am Donnerstag (eventuell Mittwoch) eine Lücke und Sie möchten sich etwas dazuverdienen? Dann stellen Sie sich per eMail kurz bei uns vor und schreiben Sie uns, warum Sie das Virchowlab oder Rudis Forschercamp betreuen möchten. Diese formlose Kurzbewerbung schicken Sie bitte an: katja.weichbrodt@virchow.uni-wuerzburg.de

Bewerbungen von Frauen sind besonders erwünscht. Schwerbehinderte Bewerber/innen werden bei im Wesentlich gleicher Eignung bevorzugt eingestellt.
