The Cluster Project ENABLE – Unraveling mechanisms driving cellular homeostasis, inflammation and infection to enable new approaches in translational medicine is a newly established interdisciplinary research network which has been initiated jointly by the Goethe University Frankfurt, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, the Fraunhofer Institute for Translational Medicine and Pharmacology, the Georg-Speyer-Haus and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics. The network recently received funding by the State of Hesse and the Institute for Biochemistry Il (Director: Prof. Dr. Dikic) is looking to fill in the positions from April 1st, 2021 or later of

5 technology-oriented postdoctoral scientists (m/f/d)

(E13 TV-G-U, full-time)

to work on projects in the fields of biologics, chemical biology, cellular and phenotypical screening, proteomics, genomics and computational sciences.

The positions are initially limited to two years. There is the possibility of subsequent employment. The salary grade is based on the job characteristics of the collective agreement applicable to Goethe University (TV-G-U).

We seek ambitious and highly motivated technology-oriented postdoctoral researcher to work on ENABLE projects within the established technology platforms. ENABLE projects focus on the areas of cellular homeostasis, infection and inflammation and cover the complete range from molecular mechanisms to translational clinical science and economic analysis. ENABLE is well embedded in the excellent research infrastructure at the participating university and research institutions; all participating sites offer access to state-of-the-art technologies, well-equipped laboratories, a vibrant scientific exchange and an internationally competitive scientific training program.
