Characterization of regulation and physiological roles of eMI

The focus of this project is on the characterization of the regulation and physiological roles of Endosomal Microautophagy (eMI). eMI is a form of autophagy selective for soluble, KFERQ-motif containing substrates, for which we recently have developed a genetic system (Mukherjee et al., Autophagy, 2016). More information can be found at

Recent PhD graduates are preferred. Qualified individuals must have strong laboratory expertise in Drosophila genetics or autophagy and first author publications in peer-reviewed journals. Ability to work independently, demonstrated creativity and very high motivation are expected.
