PhD Positions in Identification of a Roseoflavin Exporter in Germany – 2021/2022

Application for the PhD Positions in Identification of a Roseoflavin Exporter in Germany – 2021/2022. Entry is now open at the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim in Germany.

The objective of the present project is the identification of the roseoflavin exporter in S. davaonensis. Five different work packages describe experiments that should lead to the identification of the roseoflavin exporter. It is unclear at present whether a single protein or whether multiple proteins form this unique exporter. The University of applied sciences will provide the salary for students in Germany.

The Mannheim University of Applied Sciences is a public higher education institute located in Mannheim, Germany. It offers degree programs at the bachelor’s and master’s levels in the fields of engineering, informatics, biotechnology, design, and social affairs.

The Scholarships are one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. The aim of the program is to create a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.

  • Germany are eligible to apply.
  • PhD degree in Identification of a roseoflavin exporter in the roseoflavin producer Streptomyces davaonensis
