Within this project, applications are invited for a three year BMBF funded postdoctoral position.
The main task of the appointee will be the establishment of a molecular diagnostic setup to investigate the huge diversity of the bacterial oral microflora in humans using DNA microarray technology. The aim of the project is a better understanding of the relationship between the oral microflora and the development of periodontal disease. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with the Department of Functional Genomics providing state of the art technological facilities.
We are seeking a talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher who can work independently. Candidates should have excellent qualification in molecular biology. Experience in microbiology and DNA array technology would be advantageous.
The University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald is located near the bay of Greifswald, which is part of the Baltic Sea between the islands of Rügen and Usedom and offers great recreational possibilities.
Please direct applications (cover letter, CV, publication list) and at least two letters of reference to
