We still know very little about the organization of the cytoplasm and the role of membraneless compartments in regulating the physiology of cells. My research group aims to elucidate the molecular principles underlying the organization of the cytoplasm. We are particularly interested in understanding how the cytoplasm changes upon environmental stress. Stressed cells have to adapt their physiology and metabolism to the new conditions. These adaptations are often mediated by alterations in the structure and organization of the cytoplasm. We aim to understand how these alterations promote organismal survival but we are also very interested in how they cause disease.

We are always looking for highly motivated and creative students.

Students interested in a master’s project with a focus on biochemistry, biophysics or cell biology are encouraged to apply.

Students interested in a PhD project should apply to the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) or they can apply directly to the lab as a Bioscience PhD student (BiPS).

We are also supporting fellowship applications of outstanding postdoctoral researchers who wish to join our lab. Funding is available through various organizations (Humboldt foundation, HFSP, EMBO, DAAD, etc.).

International students and researchers are particularly encouraged to get in touch.

In case you are interested in working with us please contact Simon Alberti.
