EPR position in TU Dortmund

Our group aims to understand the structure and function of proteins, protein complexes and other biomolecules at the atomic level via electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. We invite applications for a PhD position to participate in one of the projects listed below:

-       Studying the role of tyrosyl radicals in catalysis of essential enzymes
-       Testing the hypothesis that enzyme adaptation is driven by protein dynamics
-       Understanding the role of π-stacked tyrosine dyad in proton-coupled electron transfer reactions

The candidate should have a strong background in biochemistry and/or chemistry and hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in any of these fields and willing to learn advanced EPR spectroscopic techniques. Experience with protein expression and purification techniques is preferred. We are looking for a highly motivated, collaborative and interactive candidate. Our group is located in Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Göttingen) at the moment but we will move to Technical University of Dortmund within 2017.

Please send your application including cover letter (explaining background and motivation) and CV via e-mail as single PDF file to:
