Chair of Biochemistry

Master and Bachelor Thesis

We are accepting Bachelor and Master students. If you are interested please contact Bettina Böttcher.

We have many different projects, which involve different skills and methodologies.


  • Optimization of expression systems for the expression of large proteins

  • Development of purification protocols for endogenous and over expressed complexes

  • Electron microscopy and image processing for quality control of purified protein-complexes

  • Electron cryo microscopy of vitrified samples for structure determination

  • Image processing of electron microscopic data

  • Methods development in sample preparation for electron cryo microscopy… in particular targeting organic supramolecular complexes in none aqueous systems

  • Development and optimization of data acquisition schemes for electron cryo microscopy



Many of these projects involve collaborations with other groups or are interdisciplinary. Most projects are targeted for students with a background in Biochemistry. However, we also welcome students with a strong background in chemistry, physics and/or with programming skills for methods development and optimization of procedures.
