PhD Scholarship in Cell Biology - Germany - Januray 2012

The group “Maintenance of Genome Stability” at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry is inviting applications for
Ph.D. Student in Cell Biology (starting date: as soon as possible) 
Project description : Eukaryotic cells are mostly diploid, but the chromosome numbers might vary due to defects in maintenance of chromosome stability, as we see often in cancer cells or during aging. The main focus of our research is to understand how eukaryotic cells maintain their chromosome numbers and how they response to the aberrations in chromosome composition. The project would specifically focus on effects of aneuploidy in human cells and would involve a wide range of techniques from molecular genetics, biochemistry, cell biology to systems biology, thus providing excellent training opportunities. Successful applicant will work in an exciting research environment with access to novel technologies and excellent infrastructure.
Who should Apply : Candidates with a strong interest in molecular and cell biology are invited. Applicants should be highly motivated and interested to work in a young team of international scientists. Communication skills and good knowledge of English are required.
How to Apply : Send your application including CV, contact address of at least two referees and a statement outlining your motivation and research interests before January 31, 2012; to storchov@biochem.mpg.de
Deadline : 31.01.12
