The Mechanisms of Protein Biogenesis Laboratory at Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry headed by Prof. Danny Nedialkova is looking to recruit PhD students (f/m/d) in molecular cell biology. The lab seeks to appoint enthusiastic early-career scientists to join interdisciplinary projects on the regulation of gene expression in eukaryotic cells. Candidates must enjoy working in a dynamic international environment and are passionate about solving fundamental problems in biology.

About the project:
  • The available projects will combine diverse high-throughput approaches to dissect how events during mRNA translation guide protein structure acquisition in cells. Our research is funded by the Max Planck Society, the European Research Council, and the DFG.
  • The positions are fully funded for three years (extendable to four).


  • Applicants should hold a Master’s degree or a similar qualification in a field of life sciences.
  • Previous experience in RNA biology, next-generation sequencing, or mass spectrometry is advantageous but not required.


Apply online including cover letter detailing why he/she would like to join the group, with academic CV, and the contact details of two references as a single pdf.
