PostDoc Position:  Sensory Photoreceptors

Sensory photoreceptors of Chlamydomonas have been fundamental for the understanding of light regulated signaling processes in algae. But, in addition, the light gated ion channel Channelrhodopsin-2 serves as the most valuable tool for light-activation of neuronal cells and tissues with high temporal precision (Optogenetics).

We are seeking after a person who is enthusiastic to work on Chlamydomonas and to study biological photoreception by directed gene modification as well as physiological, biochemical, and behavioral experiment. He / She will use the recently established method of nuclear targeting using Zink-Finger Nucleases and TALE-nucleases.

We are offering an extendable 2 years contract

Expected skills: Excellent grades during qualifying degrees and experience with the molecular and cell biology of Chlamydomonas.

Applications should be sent as a single PDF-file to Hegemann from rz.hu-berlin.de
