13 PhD positions are offered by the LOEWE core area DynaMem "Dynamics of Membranes: Molecular Basics and Theoretical Description" (http://www.bio.uni-frankfurt.de/60615854/DynaMem). DynaMem is an interdisciplinary research program combining labs from the faculties of physics, biochemistry, chemistry and pharmacy, biosciences, and medicine. Two to three labs will work together on one of the 10 cooperative projects of DynaMem leading to a broader knowledge of membrane dynamics finally to allow the prediction of the dynamic behavior of membranes and the impact of membrane manipulation. Vacancies are available at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, the Goethe University Hospital Frankfurt am Main, the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysics Frankfurt am Main, and the Frankfurt Institute of Advanced Studies.
DynaMem combines research approaches of the basic behavior of biological membranes, the dynamics of membranes, membrane systems and organelles in cellular, supra-cellular context and also at level of organisms to understand basic principles of dynamics and their significance in a cellular context in a long term run. Detailed analyses of new aspects of membrane dynamics will lead to knowledge which leads to new strategies for the development of therapeutically approaches. According to this scientific overall concept DynaMem is structured into three interconnecting key aspects: (A) Manipulation of membrane functions, (B) Cellular manipulation of membrane dynamics, (C) Dynamics of membrane systems and organelles.
