PhD Positions in Regulation of Metabolism (Germany)

PhD positions are available in the German Research Foundation (DFG) sponsored laboratory of Dr. Grzegorz Sumara at the Rudolf Virchow Center for Experimental Biomedicine, University of Wuerzburg, Germany
The main focus of the lab is to understand the mechanisms of hormonal regulation of liver and adipose tissue metabolism. We are especially interested in unravelling hormonally induced signaling events regulating adaptation of these two organs to feeding and fasting and their implications in development of metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes.
Ambitious projects are available to investigate the impact of hormonally evoked signaling cascades on different aspects of metabolism using genetic, biochemical and high-throughput screening approaches.
The Rudolf Virchow Center is one of the best German basic research institutes focused on understanding biological mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and organism level and offers state-of-the-art research facilities and a vibrant, international scientific community.
The positions are initially funded for a limited period of time. Salary will be according to the collective agreement (TV-L). Disabled applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualifications.
Motivated, curious and independent individuals interested in joining us in Wuerzburg should send a single pdf document with a cover letter stating the past and future research interests, CV and publication list to Grzegorz
