Postdoc position, University of Bayreuth, Germany


The Department of Experimental Physics I at the University of Bayreuth, Germany invites applications for a

Postdoc position

in the area of Biological Physics with a focus on microscopy-based fluctuation measurements in culture cells and in vitro assays
The lab’s research is focused on elucidating physicochemical principles of life, e.g. dynamic self-organization processes in living matter, using advanced light microscopy methods and computational approaches as main tools (see also www.ep1.uni-bayreuth.de/en/research for details). The Postdoc is intended to work back-to-back with other lab members within a third-party funded project on uncovering the physical signatures of life.
Applicants are expected to have earned a PhD in Physics, Biophysics, Physical Chemistry, or Cell/Molecular Biology with additional qualifications in Physics. Research experience in the area of Biological Physics, Biophysics or Soft Condensed Matter, preferably matching the aforementioned topic, is highly appreciated and should be documented via publications. The position comes without teaching duties.
Appointments will be made for an initial period of two years at the earliest convenience, with the possibility of a subsequent renewal. Applications from handicapped persons will be favored when all other qualifications are equal. The University of Bayreuth is an equal opportunity employer and we therefore especially encourage women to apply.
Please send inquiries and meaningful applications (CV, publication list, a brief motivation letter, and 2-3 contacts for reference letters) by August 28, 2017 to: sekretariat.ep1@uni-bayreuth.de
