Masterthesis in “Molecular Cell Biology”

A position for a Master thesis in the field of Molecular Cell Biology (MSc Biowissenschaften, MSc Biotechnologie, MSc Molekulare Biomedizin) is available at the Institute-associated Research Group „Cell Adhesion and Cell Polarity“, Institute of Medical Biochemistry, ZMBE, University of Münster.
We study the role of adhesion molecules (JAMs, cadherins) during the formation of cell-cell contacts and during the development of tight junctions and cell polarity in vertebrate epithelial cells and endothelial cells. We apply primarily methods of molecular biology, protein biochemistry and fluorescence microscopy. This new project aims at the characterization of a recently discovered JAM-related protein. It includes the analysis of its expression pattern (Westernblotting, qPCR), its subcellular localization (IF, Confocal Microscopy), and the characterization of potential binding partners (pulldown, coimmunoprecipitation). If you are interested, please send your informal application to Prof. Dr. Klaus Ebnet, Institute of Medical Biochemistry, ZMBE, Von-Esmarch-Str. 56, D-48149 Münster. Tel.: 0251-8352127; e-mail: ebnetk@uni-muenster.de. More information is also available on our homepage (http://zmbe.uni-muenster.de/institutes/imb/ebnet/ebnetmain_de.htm).
