Project Description

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate interested in an innovative and interdisciplinary research at the chemistry/biology interface. The project involves the bioorganic synthesis of nucleic acid derivatives for the template-mediated generation of peptides in and on living cells. Peptide conjugates will be designed for the treatment of cancer cells.

Activities and responsibilities:
The position includes teaching in organic chemistry seminars and lab courses, publication of scientific results, andtasks for the scientific qualification (doctorate).

Qualification profile:
Master degree or equivalent in organic chemistry or biochemistry (preferably with very good results);experience in bioorganic synthesis, preferably in nucleic acid and peptide synthesis and analytics. Th e ideal candidate has command over organic chemistry methods and is experienced with cellular studies as well as interdisciplinary research approaches, very good communication and English skills, capability of interdisciplinary work.
