Postdoc position to study protein interaction and post-translational protein modifications in cancer
- Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Molecular Medicine
- University of Graz
The “Network Pharmacology” research group headed by Ulrich STELZL at the University of Graz, Austria is a seeking outstanding candidate as
University Assistant with doctorate
(40 hours a week; fixed-term employment for a period of 6 years; position to be filled as soon as possible)
Research and teaching in the field of Molecular Biology / Biochemistry / Chemistry / Pharmaceutical Chemistry / Genomics / Molecular Medicine; independent research and contribution to collaborative projects in the network pharmacology group.
The group is focusing on the analysis of molecular interaction networks with the aim to understand the dynamics of molecular networks underlying cellular processes related to human disease. Experimental functional genomics techniques, e.g. HTP Y2H screening, mass spectrometry and next gen sequencing, are utilized in combination with biochemical, cell biological and computational methods.
Complex diseases strongly depend on the individual genomic background and cannot be treated effectively by interventions at single drug targets and with single drugs. Network biology will advance our understanding of the molecular changes in complex diseases and of drug action and will be an important piece in developing individualized medicine. The successful candidates will join a newly equipped, active interdisciplinary research environment at the interface between basic and applied research.
To apply, please send a short letter of motivation briefly outlining your interests (one page max), a full CV including a specific description of your practical experience and your computational skills, together with the contact details of at least two referees in a single pdf file via email to
bewerbung(at)uni-graz.at indicating the reference number MB/172/99 ex 2016/17.
