At the TU Dresden’s Institute for Physiological Chemistry, we offer two positions as a

PhD student (f/m)

(initially TVL-E13/50 %)

Germ cells may be considered the most important cells of all, as all of us originate from them. Despite the importance of germ cells, major biological questions are unresolved, and central biomedical problems await their solution. On our life science campus, we entertain a focus on germ and stem cell biology. Based on extensive experience in the field and a strongly interactive environment that supports excellent molecular and cell biology research and provides very good supervision, we strive to make key contributions to male and female germ cell science.

Currently doctoral theses projects, supported by DFG funded positions, are available on:
1. The control of RNA processes in male germ cells, including splicing and nonsense-mediated decay. For background information please see PMID: 28263986, PMID: 27149095, PMID: 19345099.
Contact: Prof. Dr. Rolf Jessberger;
2. Mechanisms of genome maintenance during meiotic recombination in mice. For background information please see PMID: 27723721, PMID: 27760146, PMID: 27165042, PMID: 22549958, PMID: 21478856.
Contact: Prof. Dr. Attila Toth in English;

We expect enthusiasm for life sciences, solid education, creativity and team-spirit. The positions are available immediately.
