Within the scope of the ongoing multidisciplinary project, the relationship between genotype and mechanical phenotype of the cell will be systematically investigated by means of the high-throughput screening of mechanical properties of RNAi-knockdowns. Successful candidate will be given the opportunity to carry out a state-of-the-art research work on an emerging, high-impact area of science between molecular biology, bioinformatics and biophysics. Work will be carried out in the division of Prof. Roland Eils within BioQuant, the Center for “Quantitative Analysis of Molecular and Cellular Biosystems” at Heidelberg University.
We are looking for highly motivated students with the educational background in biological, bioengineering or related areas of science. Previous experience in experimental cell biology, microscopy and computational data analysis is an advantage.
Applications including a cover letter, CV and references (if available) should be submitted as one single PDF.
Application deadline: December 31, 2011
