PhD Student and Postdoc in NMR Spectroscopy


We are looking for additional group members in the field of NMR spectroscopy on proteins.

Our focus is the characterization of protein structure, dynamics and interactions, using both solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. In the past, we have committed ourselves to the development of innovative NMR methodology as well as application of new and established methods to better understand the behavior of various proteins. In particular, we are one of the leaders for solid-state NMR methods development. Current interests are the protein dynamics playing a role for enzymatic function and as well as protein-small molecule interactions. Our lab has top-notch 800 and 700 MHz high-field NMR magnets used for both, solids and solution. We own truly superb equipment, including two probes for ultrafast Magic Angle Spinning (111 kHz MAS).

The lab will transition from LMU Munich to TU Dortmund in spring 2019, where - in conjunction with the MPI for molecular physiology – excellent research opportunities and a very generous setting of equipment and personnel are opening up for us.

The preferred candidates should be knowledgeable in both, biochemistry and NMR characterization of proteins, including all aspects from protein production, assignments, structure calculation, and basics of dynamics. Applicants should be devoted chemists/biochemists/physicists craving for exciting structural biology data and sophistication of NMR spectroscopy, experts in leading-edge technical concepts, and foster scientific exchange with their fellow coworkers. A social and conscientious personality, a high level of detail and strong commitment are also important prerequisites.

The group is (and will be) active part and beneficiary of a multitude of science networks fostering high-quality interdisciplinary research and scientific exchange, including two Clusters of Excellence (CiPS-M and RESOLV, two SFBs (749 and 1309), and the IMPRS graduate school of the Max-Planck society.

German language skills, though not a prerequisite, are a strong plus for teaching involvements.

If you feel like you meet the above criteria, I would be very happy to get in touch:
