There will be an opening for 1 PhD position (starting date: June 2017) in my group at the LOEWE Center for synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO) at the Philipps University Marburg, Germany.
SYNMIKRO is a highly interdisciplinary center that consists of members from seven faculties of the university of Marburg and the four departments of the local Max Planck Institute. Drawing on Marburg’s highly-rated expertise in microbiology, it integrates almost 30 laboratory groups at the university and the Max Planck Institute to cover all aspects of microbial life from the molecular level to whole cells and communities.
The project involves a multidisciplinary approach to understand the control of the bacterial metabolism by nucleotide-based second messengers in response to stress and environmental changes (Check: Steinchen et al., 2015, PNAS; Steinchen & Bange, 2016, Molecular Microbiology).
The PhD research projects will foster skills in cell biology, protein biochemistry, automated hydrogen-deuterium exchange massspectrometry (HDX), X-ray protein crystallography and cryoEM.

With best regards,
