A PhD position is available to work on the regulation of the 26S
proteasome. The 26S proteasome is a multi-enzyme protease that degrades
most short-lived proteins of the cell, e.g. p53, Mdm2, c-Jun or Rb. How
substrates are brought to the proteasome and how the proteasome is
regulated is only poorly understood. Within this study, we will shed
light on these aspects.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a solid background
in molecular biology or biochemistry, a strong interest in basic and
applied sciences, and the ability to work in a team.
This is a collaborative project, partly financed by the DAAD. Therefore,
the successfull candidate will work in France (Clermont/Ferrand in the
group of Daniel Taillandier and Didier Attaix) during the first half of
the PhD. After that time the PhD work can be continued in France or in
Starting date shall be the 1st of January 2008.

Studies and Research in Sustainability - Study and Research Scholarships 2008
Published on: 15.08.2007
Application deadline is: 15.11.2007
With financial support provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers a special programme on "Studies and Research in Sustainability" that gives particularly qualified graduates, doctoral students and postdocs from selected countries as well as German doctoral students and postdocs the opportunity to study and research in Germany or abroad.
In offering the scholarship programme, the DAAD and BMBF aim to make a specific contribution to strengthening international cooperation in education and research, above all with a view to promoting sustainable development in the field of environmental and climate protection. Besides supporting cultural and professional exchange, the programme particularly provides support to integrate knowledge and to transfer the latest findings produced by sustainability research on selected key funding areas of the BMBF (see annex). The study and research stays aim to give the scholarship holders opportunities for getting to know and to use research sites and their specific infrastructures (e.g. pilot plants, laboratories, test plants) and networks. At the same time, scholarship holders are encouraged and enabled to initiate international research projects and strategic cooperation in research and industry. To develop international cooperation and implementation strategies, close cooperation with companies and partners from fields of practice (multipliers and disseminators, NGOs) is supported by financing internships.
