PDZnet Vacancies Are Now Open

If you’re interested in contributing to groundbreaking research in the field of protein-protein interactions mediated by PDZ domain proteins please take a look and get in touch. PDZnet aims to advance our understanding of complex cellular signaling pathways and therapeutic potential of proteins comprising PDZ domains. PDZnet has 13 open PhD positions at University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Novo Nordisk (Denmark), Uppsala University (Sweden), Sapienza-University Rome (Italy), CRCM-Inserm (France), Institut Pasteur (France), IGBMC-CERBM (France), Systasy Bioscience (Germany), and Goethe-University Frankfurt (Germany).

The Network

The PDZnet network includes 11 academic research groups and 3 industrial partners distributed across 6 European countries (Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Sweden). The network provides an international and multidisciplinary PhD training platform for 14 next-generation researchers (PhD students).

Open positions

We train PhD fellows to become independent, creative and innovative scientist by providing cutting-edge knowledge, a diverse and comprehensive technology platform, and transferable skills training making the young researchers attractive candidates for research positions in academia or industry.

Research

In four interdisciplinary and complementary research work packages the PDZnet network will advance the understanding of PDZ domain proteins as molecular hubs for cell signaling and as therapeutic targets for treating cancer and neurological diseases.
