PhD Position

Hamburg, Germany
Application deadline: 10 Jan 2014

A PhD position is available in (membrane) protein biochemistry and X-ray crystallography in the newly established research group of Dr. Henning Tidow at the Institute for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Hamburg, Germany. 
Our group studies the structure-function relationship of calcium pumps and channels from various organisms and their regulation. The PhD project will involve expression, purification and structural characterization by X-ray crystallography of membrane proteins involved in calcium transport as well as functional studies to elucidate their regulation.

The ideal candidate is a highly motivated student with a strong interest in structural biology. Previous experience in molecular biology, protein biochemistry and/or crystallization would be an advantage. Good English language skills are essential; knowledge of German is not required. 

Applications and informal inquiries about the position should be sent to Henning Tidow by email ( Applications should include a CV, a letter of motivation detailing research interests and expertise, and contact details for at least two referees. Closing date is 10 January 2014 but applications will be considered after that period until a suitable candidate is found.
