1. Postdoctoral Position in Sociogenomics and Child Development

The Max Planck Research Group Biosocial (Biology, Social Disparities, and Development) takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying the effects of social inequality on child and adolescent development at multiple biological and psychological levels led by principal investigator Dr. Laurel Raffington.

Biosocial research provides an important avenue of inquiry for understanding how the social environment intersects with biological processes to shape differential outcomes of education, health, and well-being across the lifespan. The successful candidate will work with novel omics methods (e.g., polygenic indices, DNA-methylation algorithms) to examine the effects of socioeconomic inequality on children’s physical and psychological health and well-being.

6. Postdoctoral Position in Optical Nanoscopy

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

The recently introduced MINFLUX (Balzarotti et al., Science 2017) and MINSTED (Weber et al., Nature Photonics 2021) concepts have unlocked the door to minimally invasive, low-light-level analysis of the structure and the dynamics of macromolecular assemblies (e.g. Gwosch et al., Nature Methods 2020) in living cells in 4D at the nanoscale. The unprecedented capabilities available in the department include experiments at 1-nm resolution.

The project aims at unraveling structure-function relationships and molecular mechanisms by developing appropriate sample preparation methodologies and imaging strategies suitable for data acquisition using the latest nanoscopy approaches such as MINFLUX. Sample design will be performed in close collaboration with the organic chemists and physicists from the Department of Optical Nanoscopy at the MPI for Medical Research.

10. Postdoctoral Position in Observational Cosmology

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

MPE invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of observational cosmology. We are searching for candidates with experience in galaxy clustering and/or numerical simulations of structure formation. The successful candidate will work with Dr Ariel Sanchez on the cosmological interpretation of data from galaxy redshift surveys.

Cosmological research at MPE covers both theory and observations and is focused on understanding the nature of dark energy, dark matter, massive neutrinos and inflation. At MPE, the successful applicant will join the consortia of the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment (HETDEX), the Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS) survey, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), and the ESA space mission Euclid.

11. Postdoctoral Position in Constructing Urban Futures in Asia

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

Growing prosperity and ongoing rural-urban migration have been feeding an unprecedented building boom across the cities of East Asia, Southeast Asia and South Asia, sometimes coupled with a renewed appreciation of cultural heritage. Not only is the boom transforming political economies; it will also create the signature metropolises of our century and challenge Euroamerican hegemony over notions of the urban.

The new focus group will concentrate on the professionals in planning, architecture, construction and conservation, as the people most centrally placed to shape urban futures in Asia, and will investigate their ideals, concerns, strategies and compromises when dealing with the multiple political and economic actors involved in construction and with general challenges such as climate change. Researchers are expected to conduct in-depth ethnographic fieldwork and to contribute to theoretical and methodological innovation in anthropology, urban studies and adjacent fields.

Application Deadline: 15 January 2023

12. Postdoctoral Position in Glycomics and Glycoproteomics

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

Glycosylation is an important modification of proteins and is involved in the regulation of the biological activity and stability of many proteins. Notably, the glycosylation of many eukaryotic proteins appears to be highly regulated and minor structural changes of the glycan portions may lead to major changes in function. Therefore, protein glycosylation analysis is becoming increasingly important in medical/clinical, biopharmaceutical, as well as biotechnological research.
