At the Julius Wolff Institute of the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, we have an opening for a PhD student in the field of biotechnology / engineering with technical skills and interest in cell biology of fracture healing in the group of Prof. Dr. Georg Duda:

The research project involves the development of techniques for in vivo visualization of fluorescence-stained cells in order to monitor and decipher the development of blood vessels after bone fracture. The work forms a bridge between the clinically relevant question of bone healing and the fundamentals of vessel formation and is therefore carried out in close cooperation with working groups at the Max Delbrück Center and the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery of the Charité. The selected candidate is eligible for taking part in the structured PhD Graduate School 203 "Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies" and part of the DFG Excellence Initiative (Link: www.bsrt.de). The project is part of a larger DFG funded research group (https://jwi.charite.de/en/about_us/r...ation_in_aged/)

Your profile:
  • excellent degree in biotechnology, precision engineering, biomedical engineering or comparable fields
  • interested to work with living cells and fascinated by imaging technology
  • motivated to unravel the unknown, capable to self-organise and work as a team player
  • very good in spoken and written English


Personal and social skills:
  • experience in planning, implementation and publication of scientific studies
  • ability to cooperate with scientists of other disciplines.


Experience in the following areas is helpful:
  • capable in designing experimental settings
  • in vivo microscopy or experience in biophysics for the visualization of cells are desirable but not absolutely necessary

The position is offered for a duration of 36 months and payed with the regular PhD salary appliing in Germany.
