Postdoc­toral Sci­ent­ist (gn)


ISAR Bioscience GmbH is a trans­la­tional research com­pany in Planegg near Munich, sup­por­ted by the Free State of Bav­aria. Our research focuses on (auto-)immune dis­eases, degen­er­at­ive dis­eases of the brain (Alzheimer’s) and heart dis­eases (infarc­tion, car­diac fail­ure). We use human induced pluri­po­tent stem cell (iPSC) tech­no­lo­gies to develop dis­ease mod­els for the dis­cov­ery of novel drugs and cell ther­apies. In doing so, we enter into stra­tegic part­ner­ships with research insti­tu­tions and indus­trial companies.

We have an open­ing for a

Postdoc­toral Sci­ent­ist (gn)

In 2022, Prof. Dr. Martin Lohse (CEO) and Dr. Martha Som­mer (team leader) estab­lished the Sig­nalling Plat­form to identify novel drug tar­gets and develop bet­ter, more inform­at­ive drug screen­ing approaches. To advance these goals, we recently acquired an EIC Pathfinder Open grant to develop an innov­at­ive bio­sensor plat­form for next gen­er­a­tion GPCR drug dis­cov­ery. The 4-year pro­ject is coordin­ated by ISAR Bioscience and involves top sci­ent­ists loc­ated in SMEs and aca­demic insti­tu­tions through­out Europe. The budget fin­ances a full-time sci­ent­ist pos­i­tion at ISAR Bioscience, start­ing as soon as 01.12.2023 and last­ing until the end of the project.


Applic­ants should have a PhD and (ideally) a few years of postdoc­toral exper­i­ence. A back­ground in exper­i­mental GPCR research is desir­able; Inde­pend­ence and strong motiv­a­tion are required. The job will require skills in molecu­lar bio­logy, pro­tein expression/purification, cell cul­ture, plate-based func­tional assays, micro­scopy, etc., as well as data ana­lysis and sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion. Some hours per week in admin­is­trat­ive tasks related to the Pathfinder grant are also fore­seen. Flu­ency in Eng­lish is required, and a will­ing­ness to learn Ger­man (if not already known) is recommended.

Our offer

We offer the spe­cial oppor­tun­ity to help shape the devel­op­ment of a new research com­pany in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team with pion­eer­ing spirit. The postdoc will bene­fit from ISAR Bioscience’s ‘best of both worlds’ pos­i­tion­ing, where aca­demic cre­den­tials are advanced while gain­ing valu­able exper­i­ence in a dynamic biotech com­pany atmo­sphere. We are a small close-knit com­pany that val­ues lat­eral think­ing and enthu­si­asm for try­ing new approaches. Our world­wide col­lab­or­at­ive net­work is sub­stan­tial and offers many oppor­tun­it­ies for pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment. The salary will depend on qual­i­fic­a­tions and pro­fes­sional exper­i­ence and is cal­cu­lated in accord­ance with the civil ser­vice salary scales.
