We are looking for a postdoctoral candidate with background in molecular biology and outstanding motivation to work in an interdisciplinary team to study the intracellular mechanical processes relevant for epithelial cell polarity.
Correct and robust cell polarization is a key element of most cells, and it is particularly important for epithelial tissue function. The candidate will use 3D microscopy to study intracellular flows in polarized epithelial cells and correlate these flows with the intracellular protein gradients relevant for polarity. These will be combined with intracellular force and mechanics measurements obtained by optical tweezers to determine the role of forces, flows and stiffness for the onset and robustness of epithelial polarity.

The candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary team consisting of physicists, biologists and computer scientists, and will have access and contribute to the development of advanced optical tweezers, light-sheet microscopes and high end molecular biology techniques. Ideally the candidate has high interest in microscopy and image quantification as well as experience in at least one of the following methods: CRISPR/CAS9 mediated HDR, auxin induced depletion or similar protein depletion methods, PIV flow detection. Experience with polarized epithelial cells would be highly appreciated.

Münster was recently awarded the title of “The World’s Most Liveable City”, which it was given thanks to its international, cultural and educational role. Due to the high number of students, Münster is a young and vibrant town that actively welcomes foreigners. Knowledge of the German language is not required for a successful integration into the research and social life.

For questions regarding the position please contact Prof. Dr. Timo Betz at .

Please send your application including your CV, a letter describing your motivation to work with us and the reference code until 24.06.2018 to Personalgewinnung des Universitätsklinikums Münster, Bewerbermanagement, Domagkstraße 5, 48149 Münster or via e-mail to
