Cha­rité - Uni­ver­si­täts­me­di­zin Ber­lin

The Char­ité - Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin is a joint med­ical fac­ulty, which serves both Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin and Hum­boldt Uni­versität zu Ber­lin. As one of the largest uni­versity hos­pit­als in Europe with an import­ant his­tory, it plays a lead­ing role in research, teach­ing and clin­ical care. The Char­ité uni­versity hos­pital has also made a name for itself as a mod­ern busi­ness with cer­ti­fic­a­tions in the med­ical, clin­ical and man­age­ment fields.

Work­ing field:

We are seek­ing can­did­ates with enthu­si­asm and interest in mech­an­isms of pain and opioid phar­ma­co­logy. We per­form trans­la­tional research on inflam­mat­ory and neuro­pathic pain and its con­trol by G-pro­tein coupled recept­ors (GPCR) and neuro-immune inter­ac­tions (J Clin Invest 2009;119:278-86; EMBO Mol Med 2013;5:1263-77; Pain 2014;155:2056–62; eLife 2017;6:e27081; Sci­ence 2017;355:966-9; Sci Rep 2018;8:8965). The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will par­ti­cip­ate in col­lab­or­at­ive pro­jects on post-endo­cyt­otic GPCR sig­nal­ing (with New York Uni­versity) and on con­form­a­tional dynam­ics of opioid recept­ors and intra­cel­lu­lar sig­nal­ing (with Zuse Insti­tute Ber­lin; Max-Del­brück Centrum; DFG Excel­lence Cluster Math+; Ber­lin Insti­tute of Health).

Exper­i­ence in molecu­lar bio­logy, muta­gen­esis, fluor­es­cence res­on­ance energy trans­fer (FRET), bind­ing and/or elec­tro­physiolo­gical tech­niques is desir­able. The can­did­ate will bene­fit from a vibrant sci­entific envir­on­ment and mod­ern core facil­it­ies includ­ing access to high-speed super­com­puters, fluor­es­cence-based, elec­tro­physiolo­gical and beha­vi­oral meth­ods.

Applic­ants should hold a Ph.D. or equi­val­ent degree in phar­ma­co­logy, bio­logy, neur­os­cience or related fields. Strong research motiv­a­tion, pro­ductiv­ity, the abil­ity to work both inde­pend­ently and as a team mem­ber, and pro­fi­ciency in Eng­lish lan­guage are crit­ical.

Habil­it­a­tion is seen as a Qual­i­fic­a­tion goal.
