Thorsten Hoppe Laboratory - CECAD Cluster of Excellence in Aging Research, University of Cologne

We are one of the largest and oldest universities in Europe and one of the most important employers in our region. Our broad range of subjects, the dynamic development of our main research areas and our central location in Cologne make us attractive for students and researchers from around the world.

The Hoppe lab (www.hoppelab.uni-koeln.de) is looking for postdoctoral fellows. We study the dynamic regulation of proteolytic pathways that integrate environmental and physiological changes to identify protein degradation networks that protect the proteome of the organism. In addition to providing new molecular insights into stress-induced adaptive mechanisms, the ERC funded research program CellularPQCD will lay the foundation for exploring the pathophysiology of aggregation-related neurodegeneration triggered by chronic protein damage.
