Open PhD Position in the Field of Membrane Protein Biophysics in Frankfurt/M, Germany

The Glaubitz lab is looking for a new PhD student to join our team working on transport proteins. The PhD project is concerned with the functional understanding of ATP driven efflux pumps (ABC transporters). It involves solid-state NMR and DNP as well as membrane protein biochemistry and is well connected via collaboration with complementary methods such as EPR or single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy. The successful candidate should hold a degree (MSc) in biochemistry/chemistry/biophysics or related subjects. Some previous biochemical wet lab experiences will be helpful. We offer an exciting research project and very good research infrastructure including high field solid-state NMR (850 and 600 MHz) and DNP spectrometers. The lab is part of the Frankfurt Centre for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (BMRZ), the research network “Transport across membranes “ and the Cluster of Excellence “Macromolecular Complexes”. The lab is located at the Riedberg Campus of the Goethe University Frankfurt, which is a hotspot for membrane protein research, structural biology and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. 

Applications shall be addressed to Clemens Glaubitz (glaubitz@em.uni-frankfurt.de). Informal pre-application enquiries are welcome. Formal applications should include a CV, a brief summary of the Diploma/Master thesis project, copies of degree certificates and names of two professors who could be contacted for a reference. Please combine all documents into one single PDF.
