What is the background of the project?
Our work is focused on protein transport and protein assembly mechanisms in bacterial cells. Bacteria like eukaryotic cells have to export a large subset of cytosolically synthesized proteins into their inner membrane, periplasmic space, outer membrane or extracellular space. To achieve this, bacteria have developed highly specific and highly sophisticated protein transport mechanisms. Some of these pathways are found in bacteria only and are crucial determinants for bacterial pathogenicity; other pathways were originally
What is the aim of the project?
What techniques and methods are used?
What is the role of the student?
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
Enthusiasm and interest in experimental work, basic knowledge in biochemistry. FLUENT english is absolutely necessary!!! There are approximately 7-8 hours work per day.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
