Postdoctoral Fellow in Biochemistry or Structural Biology (f/m/d)

Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP), Berlin

The Haucke lab (www.leibniz-fmp.de/haucke) seeks to recruit a postdoc in biochemistry and/ or structural biology to analyze the molecular architecture and function of protein complexes that control membrane and organelle dynamics in health and disease. Our main focus is on the endolysosomal system that we study using a combination of biochemical/ structural biological, genetic, and cell biological approaches [Lo et al Haucke, Nat Chem Biol 19, 18-27; Ebner et al Haucke, V.
