[ccp4bb] PhD position on single molecule studies of DNA repair

A PhD position is available in the laboratory of Ingrid Tessmer (Rudolf Virchow Center for Experimental Biomedicine, University of Würzburg). We are interested in the study of DNA repair processes with particular focus on DNA lesion search and recognition mechanisms in different DNA repair systems (Wirth et al. (2016) JBC 291: 18932-18946; Buechner et al. (2015) Nucleic Acids Research 43: 2716-2729; Tessmer and Fried (2014) DNA Repair 20: 14-22; Buechner et al. (2014) JBC 289: 3613-3624). The project will involve a range of single molecule approaches as well as molecular biological and biochemical methods.

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated PhD student with strong interest in DNA repair strategies and single molecule biophysics. The position is available as of immediately.The PhD student will be part of the International Graduate School of Life Sciences of the University of Wuerzburg. Interested candidates should e-mail an application including a cover letter detailing their interests and expertise, their CV, transcripts, and the contact information of at least two references to ingrid.tessmer@virchow.uni-wuerzburg.de.

Previous experience in biochemistry, biophysics, or structural biology is required. Eligible students with a Masters degree (or equivalent) in Biophysics, Biochemistry, or related fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
