Ph.D. projects

We offer a range of different phd projects, often in collaboration with international academic coworkers or industrial domestic partners. The PBG currently has seven phd students. As a phd student you are accepted into the phd school at the Faculty of Science and become part of the phd program in Protein Science. Please apply directly with the individual principal investigators.

M.Sc. and B.Sc. Student Projects

The group has an extensive collaboration around techniques and subjects. When working in the group you will be confronted with the following techniques either directly in your own project or through the person on the bench next to you. The major techniques used include:

  • Protein expression and purification
  • Biophysical techniques (protein stability and folding)
  • Immunological techniques (Western blot analysis, immunoprecipitation)
  • Molecular biology (cloning, PCR, mutagenesis)
  • Protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions (pull-down, gel-retardation)
  • Mammalian cell culture (overexpression, RNAi, specialized assays)
  • Plant molecular biology
  • Genetic screening and two-hybrid analysis
  • Analytical techniques (UV-VIS and fluorescence spectroscopy, RP-HPLC)

The PBG has a strong focus on education and welcome new students in the lab. We generally have about 8 masters and 8 bachelor students in our laboratories. All students participate in the weekly PBG seminars, where they give at least one short presentation while working in the lab. If you want to hear more about working in the PBG from a student perspective you are welcome to contact one of the students in the staff list

You can find current proposals for B.Sc. and M.Sc. projects within PBG in our project database.


The Protein Biology Group offers teaching in the B.Sc. and M.Sc. and Ph.D. courses on protein and cell-biology related subjects. You can read more about the courses taught by the members of the section in the Biomolecular Sciences' teaching pages.
