The group for Computational Biology is offering a student assistant position (3 months, 8-10 hours/week) for a mini research project on the curvature-inducing effect of proteins studied by molecular dynamics simulations. Contact: Rainer Böckmann, Phone 25409, e-mail:


The newly established DFG Research Training Group (RTG) – Dynamical Interactions at Biological Membranes: From Single Molecules to Tissue – at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, announces

13 PhD positions (65 % E13)

in biological and biophysical research focused on structure – dynamics – function relationships of biological membranes. Topics of the RTG range from the protein-lipid interaction on the atomistic scale to the role of membrane interactions in cell growth and cell-cell interaction. For more information visit the individual projects on this webpage.

We expect applicants to hold an M.Sc. degree in (Bio)Physics, Biology, or related disciplines and to have a strong interest in life sciences.

Applications including CV, names and e-mail addresses of two academic referees, a short statement of research experience and future research interests (within the RTG, specify the respective project numbers) should be sent by e-mail (as a single PDF file) to
