PhD Position in Structural Biology at the University of Freiburg
At the University of Freiburg (Germany), a PhD position is open in the Hunte lab to study fundamental processes of biological energy conversion and their implications in health and disease. Membrane protein complexes will be studied with a combination of molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical methods with emphasis on X-ray crystallography.
The project focuses on the role of lipids for proton-translocating respiratory complexes (http://www.taim.uni-freiburg.de/research/research-projects/P7). The position is integrated in the Research Training Group (RTG) 2202 “Transport across and into membranes”, a three‐year structured PhD program at the University of Freiburg (www.taim.uni-freiburg.de). The Hunte research group is based at the Institute for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (http://www.biochemie.uni-freiburg.de/ag/hunte/) and is member of the BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies (Cluster of Excellence, http://www.bioss.uni-freiburg.de). We are offering a dedicated research environment with state-of-the art facilities for membrane protein research at the molecular level. We are seeking highly motivated and qualified individuals with a keen interest in molecular biomedical research.
Candidates should hold a university degree (Master or equivalent) in biochemistry, chemistry, biology or a related topic. Positions are available from August 2016 until filled. For further information, please contact Carola Hunte (Email: email@example.com). Applications should be directed to the RTG (firstname.lastname@example.org).
