Two PhD positions in Pharmaceutical Biology

Faculty of Science, Department of Pharmaceutical Biology

About the post 

The Department for Pharmaceutical Biology at the University of Tübingen seeks highly motivated PhD students to study bioactive compounds from bacterial sources. Both positions are third-party funded for a minimum of 3 years and can be filled immediately. Our work deals with the discovery, biosynthesis, engineering and physiological function of microbial secondary metabolites with anti-infective properties.

Both projects will focus on the biosynthesis of natural products, one targeting peptidoglycan formation by inhibition of MraY translocase (AK Gust) and the other targeting metalloproteases (AK Kaysser). A diverse set of methods from the toolboxes of synthetic biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and natural product chemistry will be applied. In Tübingen, we are part of an internationally renowned research cluster dedicated to bacteria and their secondary metabolites.

Deadline: 31st August, 2019

Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Cell Biology (m/f/d, 100%, E13)

Interfaculty Institute of Cell Biology

About the post

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc to join a young and growing lab – three year position at 100% E13 German payscale –

Research Topic: How do cells coordinate metabolism, growth and cell division?

In the model organism budding yeast we investigate how cellular signaling ensures that biochemistry and physiology of the cell are coordinated; for example, how resources are allocated appropriately during growth and division.

This project: This DFG funded project will investigate the cross-talk between CDK and PKA signaling to understand how the cell coordinates metabolic fluxes with cell cycle progression. The broad method spectrum will include in vivo and in vitro biochemistry, quantitative phenotyping by microscopy, analytical  HPLC, and proteomics in collaboration with our facility.

Who should apply? We are looking to fill the postdoc position in early 2020, but the start date is flexible. Our work is interdisciplinary so we can accommodate candidates with various life science backgrounds. For this project we expect experience in at least one of the following: yeast physiology/genetics, metabolism, protein biochemistry, proteomics, or live cell imaging. Our lab language is English. Your application should include a CV, specific motivation letter, abstract of your thesis and names of at least two references.

Deadline: Aug 31st 2019

PhD Position (E13 TV-L, 50%, m/w/d) in Natural Products Discovery

Faculty of Science / Faculty of Medicine, Interfaculty Institute of Microbiology and Infection

About the post

The research group “NatResource” at the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen is looking for a PhD student to isolate and characterize new antibacterial natural products from microbes. We are a young and highly motivated research team at the interface of natural products isolation and synthetic organic chemistry with special interest in finding new antibiotics.

As part of Cluster of Excellence: CMFI – Controlling Microbes to Fight Infections, we seek an enthusiastic scientist with a Masters in Natural Products Chemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, or closely related disciplines. The project is focused on finding new lead compounds for the treatment of bacterial infections. Candidates are expected to be highly interested in natural products and organic chemistry. The position is initially funded for 3 years.

Interested scientists should submit their application documents (CV, motivation letter, 2 references, grade transcripts) as a single .pdf-file via email to: by Sept 1st 2019. The website of the PI can currently be found at:

Deadline: Sept 1st 2019

PhD Position in Theoretical Quantum Optics and Quantum Metrology

Institute for Theoretical Physics

The Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University Tübingen is looking to fill a PhD Position in Theoretical Quantum Optics and Quantum Metrology (75% of an E13 TV-L position, funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG).

The position will be offered for three years and will have as topic theoretical investigations of high-resolution imaging with multi-parameter quantum metrology.   The position will be based at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University Tübingen, Germany, in the group of Prof. Daniel Braun, and the project will be in close collaboration with Prof. Gerardo Adesso´s group in Nottingham, UK.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with excellent analytical and programming skills and a sound working knowledge in quantum mechanics. The ideal candidate has previous working experience in theoretical quantum optics or quantum parameter estimation theory. Formal hiring requirement is a master degree in physics or an equivalent degree.

Interested candidates are asked to send a CV (including a list of publications, if any) and a transcript of academic records to, and arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address. Disabled persons will be preferred in case of equal qualifications. The University Tübingen seeks to raise the number of women in research and therefore urges qualified women to apply.

Application deadline is August 15, 2019.
