Research Associate / Postdoc


The Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), an institute of the Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering, is one of the leading centres for Regenerative Medicine in the world. It is the interface between fundamental research and clinical application. The target of the CRTD is to explore the self-healing potential of the body and to develop completely new regenerative therapies for previously incurable diseases. The research focuses are Haematology and Immunology, Diabetes, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Osteochondral replacement, Cardiovascular Diseases. Thereby, one of the core tasks is the technology transfer that is realised through a complex technology platform.

The junior research group of Dr. Maximina Yun, Regeneration of complex structures in adult vertebrates is offering a position, starting as soon as possible as

Research Associate / Postdoc

(Subject to personal qualification, employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)

The employment contract is offered initially until 31.12.2018 with a possibility of extension. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). The major aim of the group's research programme is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying regeneration of complex structures in adult vertebrates, using salamanders (newts and axolotls) as model organisms. The group uses a broad range of cutting edge molecular, genetic, biochemical and imaging techniques to investigate regenerative processes. The candidate's research project will focus on understanding the role and regulation of cellular senescence during regeneration of complex structures (Yun et al, eLife, 2015; Davaapil et al, Development 2017) with an emphasis on the interplay between cell senescence and the immune response.
