Research

The functions of proteins rely on their structures and the structural changes they can undergo. Structural biology hence provides unique insights into biomolecular function and thereby into cellular processes. Furthermore, the knowledge of protein structures is an invaluable starting point in the development of drugs to treat human disease. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the only method available to study biomolecular structure and dynamics with atomic resolution in solution. NMR provides information on the three-dimensional fold of proteins and the way proteins interact with other biomolecules. Finally, NMR spectroscopy gives insights into how protein complexes move and change conformation, aspects that are important for many enzymatic reactions. The information gained by NMR about biomolecular structure, interactions and dynamics allows us to understand how proteins are able to perform specific tasks in the cell.

Bachelor and Masters theses

Students interested in doing their Bachelor or Masters thesis in the Sprangers or Wiesner lab are welcome to contact us. There is a range of possible projects with a combination of structural biology and biochemical and biophysical methods.

 


PhD students and Postdocs

We have an open position for a Postdoc and for a PhD student.


Our lab is interested in applying and developing methods in NMR spectroscopy (including methyl TROSY techniques) for very large protein complexes (> 100 kDa). Our aim is to understand how motions in large enzyme complexes influence function.

Methodologically, we combine high resolution NMR spectroscopy with other structural techniques (X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM), biophysical methods (including ITC, fluorescence anisotropy), activity measurements and protein/RNA chemistry. From a biological point of view our interests are enzymes that are involved in the degradation of mRNA.

Our wetlabs and offices are newly renovated and fully equipped for modern molecular biology methods. In addition, we run three NMR spectrometers (800, 600 and 500 MHz) are equipped with new consoles and cryo/prodigy prodeheads.

Regensburg is a lively and attractive UNESCO world heritage city with a high density of pubs and bars. The faculty of biology at the Regensburg university has a focus on RNA biology.

We are looking for enthousisatic PhD/ Postdoc candidates with a strong interest and background in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. In addition, experience in standard molecular biology techniques (cloning, protein expression and purification) is a strong plus.

Interested candidates should contact me directly (remco.sprangers@ur.de) and include names of two peers that can provide letters of recommendations. In addition, a concise description of skills, previous work experiences and scientific interest should be included.
