[ccp4bb] Two PhD positions at the Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry - Prof. Thilo Stehle

Dear CCP4BB-Users,

On behalf of Prof. Thilo Stehle I would like to post a job offer for two PhD positions (see below) at the Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry.

Best Regards,


Two PhD positions at the Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry

We  offer  two  PhD  positions  in  the  group  of  Professor  Stehle  at  the  Interfaculty  Institute  of  Biochemistry  in Tübingen. Our group is interested in the atomic details of interactions between pathogens and hosts in order to  describe  the  mechanisms  of  pathogen  engagement of  target  cells  and  to  provide  a  basis  for  vaccine  and drug design.

The  successful  candidates  will  work  on  the  structural  and  functional  characterization  of  virus-glycan interactions  and  on  the  structural  and  functional  analysis  of  enzymes  involved  in  cell  wall  synthesis  and degradation in pathogenic bacteria, respectively. We are searching for highly motivated individuals with a Master degree in a relevant field (e. g. biochemistry or chemistry). The ideal candidates will have profound practical and theoretical knowledge in construct design and optimization, protein production and purification. Experience in crystallization, structure determination and other biophysical methods is an advantage. We expect excellent communication skills, willingness to work in a team,  a strong  dedication  and  motivation and  the  ability  to  design,  plan  and  interpret  experiments  in  an independent manner. Fluency in English is expected and a good working knowledge of German is a plus but not mandatory.

The  salary  will  be  based  on  German  federal  TV-L  13  (65%).  The  positions  are  fully  funded  and  available immediately.  Applications  will  be  considered  until  18th August  2017. The  University  of  Tübingen  is  an  equal-opportunity employer. Applications of women are explicitly encouraged. Applications  including  contact  information  (E-mail,  phone,  or  Skype),  CV,  research  experience,  copy  of  the Master degree certificate, and contact information of two persons for references should be send as single pdf document (max. size 3 MB) to thilo.stehle[at]uni-tuebingen.de.
