PhD position in Biogenesis and morphology of mitochondria.

A PhD position is available in a young and dynamic group to study the biogenesis and morphology of mitochondria.
The project would utilize both tissue culture and yeast cells and will employ various genetic, biochemical, biophysical, and molecular cell biology methods.

Biophysical methods, Molecular cell biology, Protein chemistry, Yeast genetics, in vitro assays

Anfangsdatum: 1. Februar 2012
