For students – Section for Biomolecular Sciences - University of Copenhagen

Ph.D. projects

We offer a range of different phd projects, often in collaboration with international academic coworkers or industrial domestic partners. 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.

We are also organizing PhD Summer Schools in Protein Science at regular intervals offering lectures by prominent international speakers and seminars.

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)
  • Molecular biology (cloning, PCR, mutagenesis)
  • Analytical techniques (UV-VIS and fluorescence spectroscopy, RP-HPLC)
  • Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations
  • Computational methods integrating MD simulations with data from experiments
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)

The laboratory houses the departmental NMR facility equipped with state of the art equipment including three NMR magnets operating at 600, 750 and 800 MHz set up for protein NMR.

SBiNLab 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 SBiNLab seminars, where they give at least one short presentation while working in the lab. If you want to hear more about working in the SBiNLab from a student perspective you are welcome to contact one of the students in the staff list

Courses

SBiNLab 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.
