Call for applications (Reg.-No. 223/2017)
Doctoral Program „Molecular Signatures of Adaptive Stress
Responses“ The Jena University Hospital, the Faculty of
Biology and Pharmacy of the Friedrich Schiller University
Jena and the Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) in Jena invite
Ph.D. student within the Research Training Group
„Molecular Signatures of Adaptive Stress Responses“ (RTG 1715)
Our Research Training Group (RTG) explores specific signaling
reactions controlling the ambivalent reaction patterns
of cells and organisms to noxious effects. The adaptive responses
of signaling networks to defined stress stimuli are
analyzed in a time- and dose-resolved manner using cellular
and organismic models. Our results are expected to advance
the understanding of the molecular signatures of stress
responses and may also promote ongoing efforts for the
effective use of the organism’s preventive and regenerative
potentials in modern medicine.
Joining research groups of the University Hospital and the
Friedrich Schiller University and the Leibniz Institute on
Aging (FLI) in Jena the RTG fosters cross-disciplinary Ph.D.
research projects in this innovative field of life sciences.
The RTG 1715 offers a structured supervision complemented
by a training program. Each doctoral candidate will work
in an interdisciplinary research project and will be jointly
supervised by three investigators with complementary expertise.
Candidates are expected to hold a Masters degree
(or equivalent) in a relevant subject (e.g., cell biology, molecular
medicine, biochemistry, nutritional sciences etc.) and
have fluent English skills in word and writing.
The position is a part-time work (50 %), remunerated under
state salary scheme TV-L E13 (salary agreement for public
service employees) and limited for three years. Severely
disabled applicants with equal qualification and aptitude
are given preferential consideration.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, a detailed description
of their university education and training together
with copies of the corresponding documents not later than
September 30, 2017 via E-Mail to the Head of the Research
Prof. Dr. Thorsten Heinzel
Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics
CMB-Center for Molecular Biomedicine
Friedrich Schiller University Jena
The applicants are encouraged to provide letters of recommendation
and contact information to two reference persons.
Starting dates for positions will be from January until April 2018.
