PhD position in molecular characterization of ion channels (Aachen, Germany)

A position for a PhD student is available at the Institute of Physiology at the Medical School of RWTH Aachen University.

We are looking for a motivated person to elucidate the gating mechanism of acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) by mutagenesis and electrophysiological analysis. Experience with either molecular biological or electrophysiological methods, or both, and interest in molecular simulations would be an advantage.

We are a young group employing a multidisciplinary approach using molecular biological, electrophysiological, and cell biological methods. Our collaboration with the Research Center Jülich (Prof. Carloni) provides access to a super-computer for molecular simulations. We offer a friendly and stimulating atmosphere, interesting research projects and state-of-the art equipment. Please visit our website for more information:

The project is funded by the DFG; funding is available for an initial period of 2 years, starting any time during 2011.

Please direct inquiries and your application including names and addresses of two referees to:

Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Gründer
Institute of Physiology
Pauwelsstr. 30
52074 Aachen
Tel.: (0241) 80 88800

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
