Postdoctoral Fellow - Nanobody Technologies for Structural Biology


Your task will be to establish an in vitro/in vivo nanobody selection approach to identify binders against selected membrane proteins, which then will be used as tools for structural (X-ray or Cryo-EM) and functional studies (e.g. Imaging, transport assays). The work aims at biological discoveries comprising both methodological and applied aspects.

PhD Student


We are seeking a highly-motivated student to investigate the structures of viral proteins essential for replication and transcription. The project is a joint endeavor between the HPI research department ‘Structural Cell Biology of Viruses’ (Prof. Kay Grünewald), the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM; group of Prof. Stephan Günther) and the group of Stephen Cusack (EMBL Grenoble).

PhD Position


Our group focuses on the cell biology of the malaria parasite and tries to understand on the molecular level how parasites get in and out of their host cell. In this project, we would like to functionally analyze the role of phospholipases of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum during its development within red blood cells. We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic PhD student with a strong background in cell and molecular biology.
