Description

PhD Student (f/m/d) with MSc in Biochemistry, Biology or Related Fields

Reference No.: PS 2022/3

The Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) group at the HZB is operating and developing three beamlines for MX at the BESSY II storage ring for the national and international user community. In addition, we are actively pursuing research projects in several areas of structural biology. A particular focus is laid upon high-throughput crystallography and compound screening. In the NECESSITY project, we will investigate a broad number of interesting compounds on the MX beamlines and identify those that could inhibit the main protease of SARS-CoV-2 together with researchers from the Med. University Innsbruck and Palacký University Olomouc. As a PhD student in our team, you will be significantly involved in our research.

Your tasks
  • You perform crystallographic fragment-screening.
  • You develop fragment-screening as a viable user experiment.
  • You utilise fragment-screening to develop compounds which inhibit the main protease of SARS-CoV-2.
  • You optimise initial hits to strong binders and inhibitors.
  • Your profile
  • MSc in Biochemistry, Biology, or related fields
  • Experience in molecular biology techniques
  • Experience in protein purification techniques
  • Expertise in carrying out fragment-screening experiments
  • Experience diffraction data collection and data handling
  • Your benefits at HZB
  • A job at one of the 18 Helmholtz centres,
  • Work in the research environment of the science metropolis Berlin,
  • Work-life balance through flexible working times, mobile working and consulting offices for work-life matters,
  • Health management and company sports programmes,
  • Financial support for public transport (Jobticket),
  • Continuing education opportunities,
  • 30 days paid leave,
  • A company pension scheme,
  • And a team that looks forward to working with you!
