Beschreibung: The Institute of Biochemistry (Medical Faculty) is inviting applications for a

PhD student (E13/50%)

for the project "HIP Kinases as regulators of cell fate decisions"

The position is immediately available for initially 3 years.

The project: In this project we will investigate the regulation of kinases belonging to the family of homeodomain-interacting protein kinases (HIPKs). These kinases are critical regulators of cell differentiation and survival, but in addition increasing evidence suggests that they function as regulators of the cell cycle and in the control of metabolic circuits. This work will focus on the kinases HIPK1 and HIPK2, which play distinct but also overlapping roles in cellular regulation. We engineered human cells which now allow to inactivate or activate the individual kinases using systems regulated by tetracycline or auxin. These tools now allow us to further investigate the HIPK-mediated regulation of downstream cell cycle regulatory kinases that we recently identified. We also found an important role of HIPKs in metabolic circuits, as the kinases control metabolic pathways and vice versa metabolites and components thereof associate with the kinases. The results from these experiments can increase our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying proliferative diseases such as fibrosis or cancer.
Your profile:
You have successfully finished your Master or equivalent degree. You are highly self-motivated and ambitious and can work well in a highly active international research team, but also work on your own. Participation in the running teaching program is expected.
Methoden: Methods: We use state-of-the art methodology to address these questions ranging from cell biological and biochemical methods to "-omics" methodologies.
Anfangsdatum: 1. August 2020
Geschätzte Dauer: 3 years
Bezahlung: TV-H E13 (50 %)
