Our mission as research: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

At our institute you will find a scientifically stimulating international environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infrastructure you will have the opportunity to make an important contribution for a healthier society.

We are looking for a highly motivated Research Assistant (f/m/x) to join the interdisciplinary and international research team headed by Prof. Fabiana Perocchi at the Institute for Diabetes and Obesity and the Neuronal Cell biology Institute of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

Our research program examines different aspects of one over-arching phenomenon: “The integration of mitochondria into intracellular signalling networks”, with the long-term goals to decipher shared, mitochondrial-dependent pathomechanisms of neuro-metabolic diseases. To this goal we integrate computational and experimental approaches that systematically survey metabolism, proteome composition, assembly, and regulation, at the tissue, cell and organellar level.
