Mass Spectrometry of Biomacromolecules (MSB) focuses in the context of biological mass spectrometry on three research themes that adhere to the study of molecular and structural biology. We study (i) adaptation of the cell surface proteome of fungi and bacteria, (ii) 3-D structures of protein complexes and (iii) multi-level control of gene expression regulation. MSB is developing advanced and innovative, mass spectrometry-based proteomics technology that is designed for these research areas and that is widely applicable in the field of molecular and structural biology. In the framework of our research program we have openings for Erasmus Mundus PhD laureates with interest in the priority Fields of Study 13.3 Chemistry, 13.4 Microbiology, Biotechnology and 13.6 Biochemistry.
