PhD position in the Zeymer group

Short:

The Zeymer group is looking for a dedicated and talented PhD student, who is interested in protein engineering, artificial metalloenzymes, and protein dynamics. The project is fully funded through the Collaborative Research Center „SFB1035“, a consortium of biochemists, structural biologists, and biophysicists at TUM and beyond focusing on the “Control of Protein Function by Conformational Switching”. If you are enthusiastic about science and wish to work on an exciting and challenging research project at the interface between Biochemistry and Biophysics, please apply directly by e-mail to Prof. Dr. Cathleen Zeymer.

Detailed:

The Zeymer Lab is a member of the Department of Chemistry and the newly established Center for Functional Protein Assemblies at TU Munich, Germany. We combine rational design and directed evolution to engineer artificial metalloenzymes and study their structure and molecular mechanism with various biophysical techniques.

We are currently looking for a dedicated and talented PhD student, who is interested in engineering conformational dynamics in a lanthanide-dependent de novo enzyme. The project is fully funded through the Collaborative Research Center SFB1035, a consortium of biochemists, structural biologists, and biophysicists focusing on the “Control of Protein Function by Conformational Switching”.

Candidates with a Master’s degree in Biochemistry, Chemistry, or Biology, who are highly motivated to learn about enzyme engineering, directed evolution, protein structure and dynamics are encouraged to apply. Previous practical experience in molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, as well as handling and characterizing (metallo-)enzymes will be of benefit.

If you are enthusiastic about science and wish to work on an exciting and challenging research project at the interface between Biochemistry and Biophysics, please apply directly by e-mail to Prof. Dr. Cathleen Zeymer. The application should include a cover letter, CV, transcript of records, and contact details to request two reference letters.
