The Cell Adhesion research group, part of the Department of Biomedicine, offers two PhD-student positions (100%) in the field of Cell Biology. We study the role of intercellular adhesion in fundamental processes such as differentiation and tissue homeostasis to identify novel approaches for the treatment of severe diseases caused by dysfunctional cell-cell contact.

Your position

The projects investigate the contribution of cadherin-based adhesion receptors to epidermal differentiation and homeostasis. The students will apply 2D and 3D cell cultures together with genetically modified mouse model approaches to test the impact of altered adhesion on cellular and tissue level. You will use innovative imaging techniques such as AFM force spectroscopy, super-resolution microscopy and live cell imaging.

Your profile

  • Master in Cell Biology or related fields
  • Expertise in common biochemical and molecular biology techniques
  • Experience with 3D cell culture models and state-of-the art imaging techniques is favorable
  • Curious and highly motivated personality with a strong sense for key research skills: Systematic, exact and focused working as well as careful observation and interpretation of results
