MSc– and BSc– projects and projects for Praktika (Drug Discovery, Bioinorganic Chemistry) are available in the group for highly motivated students.
PhD-positions will be available starting from 01.01.2020:
We are looking for talented synthetic chemists, who are interested in development of either
(a) cancer specific aminoferrocene-based prodrugs or
(b) cancer specific siRNA-based drugs.
The work will include organic synthesis, spectroscopic (UV-vis, fluorescence), chromatographic (HPLC, TLC) and mass spectrometric (ESI and MALDI-TOF MS) investigation of the prodrugs and tests of their effects on cancer cell lines.
A potential candidate should hold an MSc-title (or equivalent, e.g. Diplom) in organic chemistry or related field. Candidates with BSc-degree can start in the MSc programm of the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy. No previous working experience with live cells is required. The corresponding training will be provided. Please, apply per Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by sending your detailed CV with the full list of marks and achievements (MSc, BSc, school education) and names and contact information of 3 referees.
