PhD and Postdoctoral position (biologist, biophysicist, veterinarian

The Dept. of Dermatology and Venerology at the University Hospital of the Goethe University Frankfurt/Main, Germany is inviting applications for a

1) Postdoctoral position (biologist, biophysicist, veterinarian) (BAT IIA),
2) PhD student (biologist, biophysicist, veterinarian) (stipend)

as part of the multidisciplinary LOEWE "Proebionik" (preventive biomechanics) network which will be founded by the state of Hesse for an initial period of three years starting Jan. 1st, 2010.

The holders of these positions will be responsible for the continued work on tumour mechanics using A431 and A549 xenograft tumour models. The main focus will be placed on the validation of a new sonographical method to measure the tumour interstitial fluid pressure non-invasively. Additionally, in cooperation with other groups of the
LOEWE network the fluid dynamics in the tumour vasculature should be described. All biophysical results will be used to optimize strategies to lower the tumour interstitial fluid pressure and increase the uptake of anti-tumour drugs.

Applicants should be highly self-motivated, have a strong background in in vivo research and have good team working capabilities. Individuals with backgrounds in biophysical and computational fluid dynamic modelling are especially encouraged to apply. The successful applicants will take part in the LOEWE seminar series and graduate programme. They will benefit from the multidisciplinary of the network
combining life sciences with computational engineering.

Please send your applications including CV, a short description of research experience and interests and contact details of two references and / or letter of recommendations to:

Dr. Matthias Hofmann,
Zentrum der Dermatologie und Venerologie,
Theodor-Stern Kai 7,
60590 Frankfurt/Main,

Or submit electronically to:
Matthias.Hofmann@ em.uni-frankfurt .de
cc. info@praeventive- biomechanik. eu

According to German law, disabled persons with equal occupational aptitude will be given preferred consideration. The University Hospital strives to promote equal opportunities in sciences and is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists in teaching and research. Qualified female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

Submissions are expected til Dec. 13, 2009
