We are always looking for highly motivated Master and PhD students as well as Post-doctoral fellows. Candidates with a background in protein biochemistry, biophysical characterization of (membrane) proteins and/or NMR spectroscopy and a strong interest in structural biology are encouraged to apply.
Currently a PhD fellowhip of the Heinrich-Heine-University is available for outstanding canditates in the area of structural biology of membrane systems. The fellowship is limited to 6-12 months and candidates need to show a strong previous experiences in membrane-protein production via insect-cell systems as well as non-conventional membrane mimetics.
Please contact Dr. Manuel Etzkorn: for more information and to submit applications.
