Molecular mechanisms of motor protein-dependent transport
50 to 100 different motor proteins are at work to organize the dynamic inner life of any given eukaryotic cell. We have a long standing interest in deciphering the molecular mechanisms of how such nano-machines function and how they are regulated. The project will deal with kinesin-2 motors that are indispensible for the ciliary biogenesis. Kinesin-2 combines two distinct catalytic polypeptide chains to one double-headed motor which in turn associates with the non-catalytic accessory subunit KAP to form a heterotrimeric complex. Using a wide range of methods such as Mass Spectrometry, Microscale Thermophoresis, and Single Molecule techniques the candidate will study the structural determinants of the specific heterodimerization and heterotrimerization and how these traits have evolved over time. 
Who you are:
You are a highly motivated student with a Diploma / Master’s Degree in Biochemistry or a related field.
