Name of scholarship/program

PhD position “Microtubule Mechanics” at Technical University Munich



Important description
We are interested in the dynamics of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton, in particular microtubules. In this project, we are investigating the breaking of microtubules by severing AAA ATPases. To this end, it is important to know the mechanics of microtubules and its alteration by severing enzymes. You can find links to scientific issues in our website ( http://bio.ph.tum.de/home/e22-pd-dr-woehlke/woehlke-group.html ).

The project requires a strong background in biochemistry and biophyics. Quantitative assays and analyses are particularly important. Previous knowledge in bacterial or Sf9-cell expression techniques and protein purification is helpful.

We are offering a position in a small group that is located in the lively TUM Biophysics Department with close contact to neighboring groups working on single-protein physics, cell mechanics and single-molecule fluorescence. Beyond our standard assays (TIRF microscopy, biochemical assays), we have access to sophisticated equipment in Munich’s CIPS excellence cluster.


Eligibility and other criteria
The project requires a strong background in biochemistry and biophyics. Quantitative assays and analyses are particularly important. Previous knowledge in bacterial or Sf9-cell expression techniques and protein purification is helpful.
