Working field:

In this DFG-funded project, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying epithelial morphogenesis in animal development will be explored. Using Drosophila as a model organism, the role of the extracellular matrix and the actin cytoskeleton during the folding of the larval wing imaginal disc will be analyzed using genetic, optogenetic, cell biological and RNA sequencing methods. Moreover, cell behavior during this morphogenetic process will be investigated using modern microscopic techniques and computer-assisted quantitative image analysis.


excellent university and PhD degree in the field of Biology, Biochemistry or a related subject; strong knowledge in molecular genetics and cell biology; strong interest in developmental biology; very good English skills. Experience with confocal microscopy and Drosophila is desirable.

What we offer:

a stimulating research environment in an international group. We are associated with the Cluster of Excellence Physics of Life and have access to modern facilities, including advanced imaging and deep sequencing facilities. For further information of the Chair, please see:
