Postdoc in Quantitative Cell Biology/Biochemistry/Bioengineering

The Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in Postdoc in Quantitative Cell Biology/Biochemistry/Bioengineering, or closely related fields to join the Cell Cycle Dynamics group of Dr Julia Kamenz.

In the human body, billions of cells divide every single day. Errors during cell division or uncontrolled cell proliferation can have detrimental consequences including cancer development. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of cell proliferation and cell division. These studies include (1) the intricate regulation of the kinases and phosphatases involved in the processes of cell division, (2) the impact of post-translational modifications in regulating cell division – in particular phosphorylations – and (3) studying the complex signaling networks surveying and controlling cell cycle progression. Specifically, this project will be focusing on developing new techniques to interrogate the signaling dynamics of cell cycle progression and cell cycle checkpoints using the frog egg extract system.


The Postdoc in Quantitative Cell Biology/Biochemistry/Bioengineering offers:

  • Slary from a minimum of € 3,557 gross per month up to a maximum of € 4,670 gross per month dependent on qualification and work experience
  • holiday allowance of 8% of gross annual income
  • an 8.3% end-of-year bonus and participation in a pension scheme for employees
  • a personal budget of € 1,000 per year that is dedicated to additional training and career activities
  • career services for partners of new faculty members moving to Groningen.
