Master Thesis or Internship In Biotechnology @ Max Planck Institute Magdeburg Germany

Master Thesis / Internship in Biotechnology / Process Engineering / Analytical Chemistry “Kinetic characterization of glycosyltransferases and in-vitro enzyme cascade” available at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany.

Background
Glycosylation is an important modification of proteins, and is involved in the regulation of biological activity and stability of many proteins. Notably, the glycosylation of many eukaryotic proteins appears to be highly-regulated and minor structural changes of glycan portions may lead to enzyme dysfunction. Research into glycosylation has, thus, profoundly increased over the last years and controlling protein glycosylation is seen as a key for the cost-effective manufacturing of biotechnological products. In a joint project, an in-vitro enzyme cascade is build up to produce lipid-linked oligosaccharides enzymatically. To optimize these multi-enzyme one-pot reactions kinetic models are required. We offer an exciting and novel project in the cross section of bioengineering and bioanalytics to study the kinetics of glycosyltransferases by gel electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detection (xCGE-LIF). The candidate will have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment and we will provide first-class training and supervision.

Requirements

  • Background in biotechnology, chemical engineering or analytical chemistry
  • Ideally, experience with bioanalytical methods
  • Motivation, curiosity and ability to work in a team

We offer

  • Exciting research projects and the opportunity to develop key technologies
  • First-class supervision and thorough training by our staff
  • Training on state-of-the-art equipment for biotechnological research and development
  • Acquisition of expertise in a key technology of the future

Application
Applications in German or English are welcome. Please include your CV and transcript of records.

Start: May 2017
