Subject: 22.06.24 PhD Position: Microtubule nanomechanics and turnover under cell-like physical constraints, MPI for Multidisciplinary Sciences, Goettingen, Germany
The Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (formerly Max 
Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry) is a leading international 
research institute of exceptional scientific breadth. With more than 40 
research groups and some 1,000 employees from over 50 nations, it is the 
largest institute of the Max Planck Society.

The Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics is inviting 
applications for a PhD Student (f/m/d)for the project

Microtubule nanomechanics and turnover under cell-like physical constraints  

supervised by Dr. Maxim Igaev. The three-year PhD project involves 
massively parallel, atomistic and coarse-grained modeling to study the 
dynamic and mechanic properties of microtubule filaments subject to 
external forces by space constraints or other cellular factors.

Your profile

Eligible candidates have strong basic skills in either or all of the 
following disciplines: computational (bio)physics, structural biology, 
statistical mechanics, and scientific computing. They hold (or expect to 
complete soon) a Masters or equivalent degree in any of these or a 
related field. A keen interest in interdisciplinary research and 
collaboration with experimental groups is preferable.

What we offer

> A wide range of offers to help you balance work and family life: 
on-campus kindergarten places including vacation care, parent-child offices
, etc.;

> Further training opportunities and free in-house language courses;

> Spacious campus cafeteria with a wide range of meals 
(including vegan/vegetarian ones);

> Health management: free fitness and yoga rooms, sports groups, 
"active break" courses;

> Initiatives for sustainability and a green environment with a new 
biotope.

The group language is English, so no German language skills are 
required  but it is a great opportunity for you to learn German!

Position Details

Payment and benefits based on the German Public Service (TVoeD-Bund) 
guidelines. The starting date is flexible.
