ELBE postdoctoral fellows
The Center for Systems Biology Dresden (http://www.csbdresden.de) calls for applications for ELBE postdoctoral fellowships in the fields of
Biological Physics and Biophysics
ELBE fellows are fully funded for a duration of 1-3 years. The ELBE postdoc program fosters cross-disciplinary projects and provides an ideal springboard to an independent research career. Candidates should have a background in theoretical physics, statistical Physics or biophysics and a strong interest to use physical approaches to study biological systems and processes.
What we provide
The CSBD provides 1-3 year postdoc positions in an international and cross disciplinary research environment. ELBE fellows benefit from close collaborations with scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS), the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), and the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden). ELBE fellows have the freedom to develop their own research questions. They obtain mentoring and support in their hosting groups. ELBE fellows may choose the research groups to be affiliated with. To foster collaboration, ELBE fellows are usually affiliated with two hosting groups working in different disciplines.
What we seek
We seek outstanding young researchers with a doctoral degree in Physics, a background in theory and a strong commitment to work in a cross-disciplinary environment with biologists physicists and computer scientists.
How to apply
For details about the application procedure, please visit our website http://www.csbdresden.de/ education-careers/jobs/ Selection of ELBE fellows is highly competitive with two application cycles per year. Short-listed candidates are invited to on-site interviews with travel costs covered by the CSBD. Deadline for applications is March 3, 2017.
The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer: handicapped individuals are strongly encouraged to apply. The Center for Systems Biology, the MPI-CBG and the MPI-PKS aim to increase the number of women in scientific positions. Female candidates are therefore particularly welcome.
