The group is investigating the conserved protein machinery involved in the fusion of transport vesicles, in particular the proteins driving the release of neurotransmitters from synaptic vesicles. To come to a better understanding, we focus on a detailed structural, kinetic, thermodynamic, and phylogenetic characterization of the underlying protein-protein interactions.
We are seeking highly motivated and creative students with a firm background in biochemistry or biophysics. Prior knowledge in spectroscopic (Circular Dichroism and Fluorescence Spectroscopy) or calorimetric (Isothermal Titration Calorimetry) is a plus.Applications and informal queries about the lab and research projects should be directed by email (dfassha@googlemail. com, reference number: 04-11-A).
Applications should include a cover letter, a CV, the university grade reports and contact information for two reference persons.
