 Dr. Suat Özbek

The laboratory of Dr. Suat Özbek at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, is looking for highly motivated PhD students to join a research group working on molecular evolution in cnidarians.

The focus of the offered PhD projects is on understanding organelle morphogenesis and evolution in early branching metazoans. The successful candidate will study the function and evolution of novel molecular components in the morphogenesis of the cnidarian stinging organelle (David et al., Trends Genet. 2008; Beckmann et al., Int J Dev Biol 2010). Both projects are well-embedded in national and international cooperations.

Applicants should have a degree in Biological Sciences with a solid background in molecular biology and biochemistry. Basic skills in advanced microscopy and bioinformatics are of advantage. We are looking for motivated candidates with an interested in evolutionary and organismal biology. The Center for Organismal Studies provides a stimulating interdisciplinary research environment with access to various core facilities (Nikon Imaging Center, Deep Sequencing, Metabolomics).

Applications should be submitted to HBIGS or directly via email to Suat Özbek (, Centre for Organismal Studies Heidelberg, Heidelberg University, Im Neuenheimer Feld 230, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany.

The positions are funded by the DFG for 3 years according to the German TV-L13 (65%).

Deadline is 01.03.2018.

Abteilung Pollerberg

The “Developmental Neurobiology” group, member of the Center for Organismal Studies (COS) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Neurosciences (IZN), is looking for a highly motivated

Postdoc (f/m)

We are interested in the molecular basis of axon growth during development and regeneration. The Postdoc-project will focus on the interactions of cell adhesion molecules with other types of proteins and the impact of these interactions on axon elongation and navigation. Substantial amounts of data have already been collected for several projects; the Postdoc is therefore expected to complete and publish these studies. In addition to these basic research projects, also a new translational project could be started aiming at the improvement of axon regeneration. We are looking for a self-motivated person with a background in molecular and cellular biology, ideally in neurosciences.

We are a small but well equipped group with access to all facilities on the campus. The position is available (for up to 3 years) from 1st of April on (also a later start is possible); please send your applications until 10th of March. Payment will be according to German TV-L13 (full time; can be split). Please send your CV, relevant certificates, and a short letter of motivation (all documents as one pdf file) to G.E.Pollerberg@cos.uni-heidelberg. Preference will be given to equally qualified applicants with severe disabilities. For further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact Elisabeth Pollerberg.
