Protein-based nanomaterials

We are looking for motivated students that would like to work in the field of protein-based nanomaterials using techniques such as computational protein design, nanoparticle synthesis, and crystallography. Please contact TB for details on PhD, Master and Bachelor projects or internships (Forschungspraktikum).

The Beck group will move to Hamburg soon.

We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow.

Please see here for details: https://www.uni-hamburg.de/uhh/stellenangebote/wissenschaftliches-personal/fakultaet-mathematik-informatik-und-naturwissenschaften/06-10-19-475-en.pdf
