Structural and Cell Biology; 2 Postdoc Positions, MPI 1498 views

2 postdoc positions are available in Structural and Cell Biology at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden.

About the Project (Structural and Cell Biology):

Group of Marino Zerial is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral candidates with strong background in cell or developmental biology to work on the organization and function of liver tissue.

Mouse and human liver tissue have been chosen because it presents a number of interesting problems, such as the complex apico-basal polarity of hepatocytes, its unique 3D organization, its unique regenerative activity and the ability to manipulate it. The aim is to identify the rules of self-organization underlying liver tissue structure and their implementation at the molecular level. Two postdocs are required to work on the following projects:

  1. High-resolution imaging of the developing, adult and regenerating mouse liver to develop a geometrical model of mouse liver tissue.
  2. Re-engineering of liver tissue in vivo.

Qualifications and Requirements:

  • Candidates must have a degree in cell or developmental biology.
  • Earlier experience in imaging is an advantage.
  • Excellent command on English together with excellent communication skills and self-motivation are also requisite.


  • Position is available immediately and initially for 2 years with the chances of extension.
  • Institute especially encourages women to apply.
  • The Max Planck Society is dedicated to employ more people with disabilities and actively seek their applications.


  • Interested candidates should send a copy of their Resume and Motivation letter with contacts of 2 referees to Marino Zerial (, Job code: 2016-PostDoc-1040.
