Within the Research Training Group "Chemical Biology of Ion Channels (Chembion)" funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and established at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster 13 positions for PhD students, 13 TV-L (65 %) are available.
13 scientists of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster have teamed up with their complementary expertise to focus on the chemical biology of ion channels. The interdisciplinary research activities are centered on five topics: ligand recognition, subtype specific modulation, molecular imaging, molecular and cellular physiology, integrative (patho)physiology. Our vision of this interdisciplinary project is to solve physiological questions in the field of ion channels with innovative chemical methods, to bring together the molecular world of chemistry/pharmacy with the function-centered world of medicine and to develop the internationalization of our doctoral students.
One topic is of special interest for the bioinformatics/cheminformatics community: "In-silico studies of ion channels and their modulators using computational molecular design".
