Joining the lab

Currently there are opportunities to join our research group as a postdoctoral researcher, PhD student, or Master student.

Applicants for post-doctoral positions

Experience with membrane proteins (recombinant expression, purification and crystallization) is definitely an advantage, but not absolutely required. Expertise in mammalian or insect cell cultures is beneficial. Current projects range from structure determination of integral membrane proteins to studying the structure-function relationship using biochemical and biophysical techniques. For applications please contact Christian Löw by email and attach your CV and a brief motivation letter of your research interests.

Applicants for PhD positions or Master students

Students will have the opportunity to learn a variety of biochemical and biophysical techniques ranging from molecular biology, recombinant over expression and purification of challenging integral membrane proteins (IMPs), functional reconstitution and biochemical and biophysical characterization of IMPs (e.g. fluoresecence and CD-spectroscopy) to crystallization using robotics; X-ray data collection and protein structure determination. Students are expected to be highly motivated to work on challenging research projects in an international team.

PhD applicants: Please apply through the EMBL International PhD Programme.

Master students: Please have a look at the pages for Visitors and Undergraduates and contact Christian Löw directly.

Experience with membrane proteins is not required.
