Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Bio­logy, Insti­tute of Gene­tics, Chair of Sys­tems Bio­logy and Gene­tics

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The posi­tion is star­ting at the next pos­si­ble date. The posi­tion is limi­ted for two years with the pos­si­bi­lity of an exten­sion after­wards. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

In this DFG-fun­ded pro­ject, the mole­cu­lar and cel­lu­lar mecha­nisms under­ly­ing epi­the­lial mor­pho­ge­ne­sis in ani­mal deve­lop­ment will be explo­red. Using Dro­so­phila as a model orga­nism, the role of the extracel­lu­lar matrix and the actin cyto­ske­le­ton during the elon­ga­tion of the fol­licle epi­the­lium will be ana­ly­sed using gene­tic and cell bio­lo­gi­cal methods. Moreo­ver, cell beha­viour during this mor­pho­ge­ne­tic pro­cess will be inves­ti­ga­ted using modern micro­scopic tech­ni­ques (e.g. live ima­ging, SPIM) and com­pu­ter assisted quan­ti­ta­tive image ana­ly­sis.


  • excel­lent uni­versity degree and PhD in the field of Bio­logy, Bio­chem­istry or a related sub­ject
  • strong know­ledge in molecu­lar genet­ics and cell bio­logy
  • strong interest in devel­op­mental bio­logy
  • very good Eng­lish skills.

Exper­i­ence with con­focal micro­scopy and Dro­so­phila is desir­able.
