Jobs and PhD positions


Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Scientist (f/m/x)
We are looking for a Scientist (f/m/x) with a background in biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, chemistry or a similar subject to work on the project "Stabilization of lactic acid fermentation of faeces-containing substrates".
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Scientist (f/m/x) Subcellular Compartmentalization of Metabolism
The Department ISOBIO is looking for a Scientist (f/m/x) within the projekt METASCOPE. The project aims to develop and validate a platform for metabolite mapping at nanoscale, which will enable visualization of metabolism at a sub-organellar resolution (~100 nm). The project will integrate two cutting-edge techniques, Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and nano-scale Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (nanoSIMS), with isotope labeled nutrients, high-resolution imaging with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and machine learning models to investigate metabolic dynamics in cell-based and in vivo analyses. The project will make use of state-of-the-art cryo-sample preparation and Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry research facilities, readily available at ProVIS center for Chemical Microscopy, Department of Isotope Biochemistry, UFZ Leipzig
