Oct./Nov. 2018 - BSc/MSc thesis position available

 "Dissecting the molecular mechanisms underlying the neurodegenerative disorder MPAN using Structural Biology"

 Position:

We are currently looking for a student (BSc/MSc) to work on an exciting structural biology project about a protein involved in a neurodegenerative disorder called MPAN. Ideal candidates should have a strong background in Biochemistry, Protein Chemistry, Structural Biology, Biophysical Techniques and interest in Human Disease and Drug Discovery. Previous experience with recombinant protein expression and purification, and NMR or Crystallography experience is a plus, but not required. 

Location:

Institute of Structural Biology, Helmholtz Zentrum für Gesundheit und Umwelt (Neuherberg) and BNMRZ (Campus Garching).

Practicals, "Mitarbeit am Arbeitsplatz"

Practicals and lab rotations are available in protein / RNA biochemistry,  (basic) NMR experiments and analysis of protein or RNA spectra.
Please send a notice (including a short CV) to Hanso Kang (hyunseo.kang (a) tum.deThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) for further information.

Bachelor or Master theses

Bachelor and master thesis projects are available in the area of biological NMR and biochemical studies of proteins, RNA and protein ligand complexes.

Doctoral theses and postdoc positions

We are always looking for excellent, highly motivated doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.
Doctoral thesis and postdoctoral research projects are available in different aspects of our research:

- Structural biology of proteins, RNA, protein complexes linked to RNA biology (splicing, non-coding RNAs), peroxisomal biogenesis or cellular signaling.
- NMR methods, integrated structural biology (i.e. combining NMR with small-angle scattering)
- Structure-based drug design, targeting protein-protein interactions and disease-linked proteins.
