PhD Position in Collaborative Research Center 807 "Transport and Communication across Biological Membranes"

The Institute of Biophysical Chemistry (IBPC) at the Goethe University Frankfurt/Main offers research opportunities in the development of cell-free synthetic biology strategies for the biochemical and structural characterization of pharmaceutically relevant membrane proteins. Focus will be the characterization of human G-protein coupled receptors and of larger membrane protein assemblies. The study will implement key technologies in membrane protein research such as cell-free expression, nanodisc technologies, NMR and FTIR spectroscopy. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to participate in the CRC807 associated research training group "TRAM" offering individual mentoring concepts as well as scientific education and transferable skills training (www.sfb807.de). Active participation in scientific retreats and conferences is highly encouraged.
            Applicants should hold a diploma or master in biology or biochemistry together with a sound background in molecular biology and in standard biochemical techniques. Experience with membrane proteins will be a clear advantage but is not mandatory. We offer competitive salary and a highly interacting scientific community. The position is available from November 2016 or later. The CRC807 is newly funded until mid of 2020.
            The IBPC is located at the biocenter of the Goethe-University Frankfurt (Campus Riedberg) which provides excellent facilities for membrane protein research. The Campus Riedberg is a dynamic centre for life sciences research with an international and highly interactive scientific community. The campus hosts several science clusters like the Centre of Membrane Proteomics, the Cluster of Excellence "Macromolecular Complexes" (www.cef-mc.de) and the Centre of Biomolecular Resonance (www.bmrz.uni-frankfurt.de). The IBPC operates a European Large Scale NMR facility and it is core centre for cell-free protein expression of the INSTRUCT (Integrated Biology, www.structuralbiology.eu) consortium.
