Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - B CUBE - Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion.

For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD stu­dent / Post­doc (m/f/x)


The B CUBE - Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring, an Insti­tute of the Cen­ter for Mole­cu­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bio­en­gi­nee­ring (CMCB), at the Chair of Bio­mime­tic Mate­ri­als (Prof. Dr. Nils Krö­ger, offers a posi­tion as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD stu­dent / Post­doc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is initi­ally limi­ted for 2 years (Post­doc) and com­pri­ses 100% of the full­time wee­kly hours or 3 years (PhD stu­dent) and com­pri­ses 65% of the full­time wee­kly hours with the pos­si­bi­lity of exten­sion. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).

Working field:

The bio­lo­gi­cal for­ma­tion of func­tio­nal 3D mine­ral struc­tures (bio­mi­ne­rals) is a widespread bio­lo­gi­cal phe­no­me­non and a highly active, inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch field. To date, it is poorly unders­tood which genes are invol­ved in the mor­pho­ge­ne­sis of com­plex-struc­tu­red bio­mi­ne­rals and how the encoded pro­te­ins guide this pro­cess. Diatoms, a large group of pho­to­syn­the­tic micro­al­gae, are excel­lent model orga­nisms to address these fun­da­men­tal ques­ti­ons. They bio­syn­the­size silica-based cell walls that are intri­ca­tely pat­ter­ned from the scale of nano­me­ters to hund­reds of micro­me­ters, are readily amen­able to gene­tic mani­pu­la­tion, and their lipid-bilayer boun­ded orga­nelle for silica bio­ge­ne­sis can be iso­la­ted. The suc­cess­ful app­li­cant will use state-of-the-art bio­che­mi­cal, mole­cu­lar gene­tic and cell bio­lo­gi­cal tools to unra­vel the mecha­nisms by which diatoms are able to gene­rate spe­cies-spe­ci­fi­cally pat­ter­ned, 3D bio­si­lica archi­tec­tures. Fur­ther­more, tea­ching activi­ties for the chair in accordance with DAVOHS ( are expec­ted.


Uni­ver­sity degree (MSc.), if app­li­ca­ble PhD in bio­che­mi­stry, mole­cu­lar gene­tics, mole­cu­lar cell bio­logy, or rela­ted fields. App­li­cants with strong rese­arch expe­ri­ence in pro­tein bio­che­mi­stry will be pre­fer­red. Prior expe­ri­ence in genome engi­nee­ring or mass spec­tro­me­try is advan­ta­ge­ous but not requi­red. Strong wri­ting skills with a pro­ven track record of suc­cess­ful rese­arch are essen­tial. Excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills in Eng­lish are indis­pensable, as this is the col­lo­quial lan­guage at the rese­arch cen­ter.

How to apply:

TUD stri­ves to employ more women in aca­de­mia and rese­arch. We the­re­fore expressly encou­rage women to apply. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice. We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties. If mul­ti­ple can­di­da­tes prove to be equally qua­li­fied, those with disa­bi­li­ties or with equi­va­lent sta­tus pur­suant to the Ger­man Social Code IX (SGB IX) will receive prio­rity for employ­ment.
