For Students

Bachelor and Master projects

For Bachelor and Master thesis projects in the areas of Bioinorganic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemical Biology, we are continously looking for talented students with good synthetic skills and an interest in interdisciplinary research at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine.

To start a Bachelor thesis, you need at least 125 ECTS and should have completed the AC II lab course. A Master practical can be started at any time, but for a Master thesis project, you need at least 80 ECTS to begin with the laboratory work.

How to apply

Would you like to prepare novel transition metal complexes with activity against cancer or pathogenic microorganisms? Are you interested to learn how to attach metal complexes to bio(macro)molecules such as peptides and oligonucleotides using modern bioorthogonal coupling methods? Do you want to study the scope and kinetics of "iClick" reactions?

Then, send me your detailed application package by email. Please include a motivation letter, CV, and current Transcript of Records with your application. The latter has to be generate yourself in WueStudy. Due to limited lab space, make sure to discuss a potential project at least 3-4 months before your intended starting date to ensure we can accommodate you at your preferred date. Do not hesitate to contact me already now for a project during the summer term 2020. Our new laboratories in the new Inorganic Chemistry building  are now fully operative.

Attention - New rules for Bachelor thesis projects: Due to a high number of requests, in 2021/2022 there will be only 3 "slots" for 2 projects each: 19.04. to 16.07.2021, 27.09. to 17.12.2021, and 10.01. to 01.04.2022. Please send you application by the following deadlines: 01.03.2021, 15.07.2021, and 15.11.2021. Students will be selected on a competitive basis considering both the quality of the application package and a personal interview.
