Molecular biology and (protein) biochemistry

The laboratory of Prof. Michael Brunner employs genetic and biochemical methods using cutting edge technology to reveal the molecular principles of the circadian oscillator function and its cooperation with other cellular transcriptional circuits. We currently focus our research on 1) the molecular mechanisms of the Neurospora crassa circadian clock, 2) the coordination of the mammalian circadian clock and the cell cycle and 3) transcription induced inactivation of promoters and transcriptional memory (see also 'Current research').

We are currently looking for motivated PhD students with hands-on laboratory experience in molecular biology and (protein) biochemistry.

Interested applicants should submit their CV, names of two references, and a motivation letter to Prof.
