Abteilung Ingrid Lohmann

The Developmental Biology Group (Prof. I. Lohmann) at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) in Heidelberg, Germany is looking for

to study stem cell behaviour in the Drosophila testis.

The Lohmann lab ( works on elucidating the role of HOX transcription factors in defining cell fate using Drosophila as a model. We are located at the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS) at the University of Heidelberg, Germany and part of the collaborative research network SFB873 “Maintenance and Differentiation of Stem Cells in Development and Disease” (https://www.cos.uni-
We now seek for enthusiastic new colleagues to analyze the interplay between germline stem cells and their support cells under homeostatic and compromised cellular conditions. In particular, the project aims at identifying pathways monitoring genome integrity in stem cells and at uncovering the role of mitotic checkpoint components in monitoring asymmetric stem cell division in the male germline. The project builds on a wide array of advanced resources established in the Lohmann lab and will provide ample opportunity to implement and apply high-end techniques to investigate stem cells of the Drosophila male stem cell system at multiple scales.
The Heidelberg Molecular Life Science Community offers a vibrant stem cell research community, as well as state-of-the-art core facilities. You will have the opportunity to closely collaborate with highly recognized stem cell researchers of the SFB873 and beyond.

Successful candidates will have experience in confocal microscopy, advanced immunohistochemistry and possibly in Drosophila genetics and molecular biology. The ability to quickly integrate into an interdisciplinary team and work independently within an academic research environment is essential. The position is immediately available, the salary is according to TV-L regulations. Disabled persons with comparable skills will be preferentially considered.

Within the context of the DFG-funded project FOR 2509 The concert of dolichol-based glycosylation: from molecules to disease models” the research group of Prof. Dr. S. Strahl (Glycobiology) at the Centre for Organismal Studies Heidelberg, Heidelberg University, Germany, is offering positions for

one PhD student and one postdoctoral fellow

for the project

Protein O-mannosylation and its diverse interplay with N-glycosylation

for an initial period of 3 years.

Payment will be according to the German TV-L13.

The position will be available from January 1st, 2021.


For information about the project, please visit our website

Methods that will be used:

Analysis of cell culture CDG models, molecular biology, CRISPR/Cas9, cell biology, real-time cell analysis, FACS, protein biochemistry, mannosyltransferase activity assays, lectins, label-free and SILAC-based proteomics. Strong interactions with groups specialized on structural biochemistry (cryo-EM and NMR) as well as glycoproteomics and lipidomics are planned.

Expected profile of candidate’s qualification:

Applicants should hold a Master’s degree with an above-average grade in Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Cell Biology or a comparable field. The successful candidate should have a high level of motivation to perform innovative basic research and should be a true team player with good communication skills and a good knowledge of the English language. Experience in human/animal cell culture, molecular and cell biology, protein biochemistry and/or glycobiology would be an asset. The position requires attention to detail, strong skills in experimental design and troubleshooting, and the ability to pursue research projects independently.

Application process:

Applications including a CV, a brief summary of current and future research plans (1 page max), relevant certificates, and contact details of at least one academic referee should be submitted via email (1 single PDF file) or mail to Karin Dallmeier (, Centre for Organismal Studies Heidelberg, Heidelberg University, Im Neuenheimer Feld 360, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany. We ask for your understanding that applications submitted via mail cannot be returned.

Application deadline is 16. November 2020

As an equal opportunity employer, Heidelberg University actively encourages applications from women. Preference will be given to equally qualified applicants with severe disabilities.
