Excellent qualification in the framework of research topics in molecular biosensing at the University of Oldenburg
 
The Carl von Ossietzky University is a dynamic, continuously growing university with various research projects of international impact and thus provides a large range of opportunities for curiosity and creativity. The university aims at playing an active role in innovative exchange with industry, organizations and public institutions and supports the founding of research related start-up enterprises.
The Research Training Group (RTG) “Molecular Basis of Sensory Biology” is aiming to investigate the biology of sensory cells at the molecular level. The research projects will have a strong interdisciplinary character involving both project leaders and students from biology, chemistry and physics. Projects will target fundamental problems in research fields dealing with vision, hearing, magnetoreception, olfaction and bacterial chemoreception. Thesis topics will address, for example, activation processes of receptor molecules, receptor-coupled signal transduction pathways and molecular switch mechanisms in components of these pathways. Moreover, the understanding of sensory phenomena in living systems is envisioned to benefit greatly from physical model systems and vice versa the biological systems could inspire the development of new technical applications (e.g. in biomedicine). Thus, the central topics of all projects will be directed towards unravelling the operational principles of sensory systems and towards understanding the common molecular and physical principles realized in sensory systems.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) supports the Research Training Group „Molecular Basis of Sensory Biology” with
