2 permanent full-time Postdoc (molecular biology/cell biology/microscopy/electrophysiology) and 1 Technician positions in Hamburg

The Stauber lab is currently looking for two postdocs (molecular biology/cell biology/microscopy/electrophysiology) and one technician to join our research group at the newly established Institute for Molecular Medicine at the MSH Medical School Hamburg, located in the heart of Hamburg, just beside the Elbphilharmonie (Am Sandtorkai 75). The open-ended positions are available from April 2021.

The general aim of our research group is to understand the regulation of cellular and subcellular ion and osmolyte transport and its connection to cell physiological functions. We study the biophysical properties and biochemical regulation of channels and transporters, their effects on ion homeostasis and how they affect various processes such as cell differentiation and importantly the autophagic-lysosomal pathway in health and disease.

Two postdoc positions:


- Doctorate/Ph.D. in the field of Biology/Biochemistry/Biophysics or equivalent qualification

- Strong command (speaking and writing) of English, ideally also German

- Team spirit, fascination for science, critical thinking

- Working experience (some, not necessarily all of the following): molecular biology and cell culture (e.g. cloning, mutagenesis, genome editing), biochemistry (cell fractionation, protein analysis), electrophysiology (patch-clamp), fluorescence microscopy (e.g. confocal, live-cell, ion (e.g. Ca2+) imaging, FRET, FRAP).

What we offer:

- Open-ended, full-time employment (40 hours/week), salary oriented at the TVL E13 (depending on qualification and experience)

- Newly built laboratory space in the centre of Hamburg, with state-of-the art infrastructure

- A dynamic research environment at a newly established research institute


Research technician:


- TA-Ausbildung or BSc degree in Biology, Biochemistry or a similar field.

- Experience with standard molecular biology techniques and cell culture.

- Team-oriented and well-organised person.

- Good communication skills in English and German.

What we offer:

- Open-ended, full-time employment (up to 40 hours/week), salary oriented at the TVL (depending on qualification and experience)

- Newly built laboratory space in the centre of Hamburg, with state-of-the art infrastructure

- A dynamic research environment at a newly established research institute


Possible candidates can address questions regarding the positions or send application documents (cover letter, CV, list of methodological experience, publication list where applicable, relevant certificates in a single pdf) to tobias.stauber@fu-berlin.de or tobias.stauber@medicalschool-hamburg.de.

PhD student position (DFG-funded) available

We are seeking for a highly motivated PhD student to work on a project on intracellular ion transport and lysosomal function within the DFG Research Unit FOR2625 “Mechanisms of Lysosomal Homeostasis”, starting from October 2017.
Research techniques applied in this project will include general molecular biology (cloning, genome-editing) and biochemistry (subcellular fractionation) methods, cell biology (immunofluorescence, intracellular transport), biophysical methods (ion imaging, electrophysiology) and quantitative light microscopy methods (e.g. FRAP).
Requirements: M.Sc. degree in biological sciences (biochemistry, biophysics); excellent academic record; keen interest in cell biology and biophysics; experience in lab work; experience with quantitative microscopy and/or electrophysiology is advantageous.

Application: Please send your complete application documents (cover letter, CV, relevant certificates and contact of 2 references in 1 pdf) by e-mail to tobias.stauber@fu-berlin.de

Questions regarding the position can be addressed to tobias.stauber@fu-berlin.de

Please address inquiries and applications (including short letter of motivation, full CV, contact of two referees) to Tobias Stauber (tobias.stauber@fu-berlin.de).
