PhD Position in Nanoscience - The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI)
University of Basel, Basel, CH
The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel invites highly motivated scientists to apply for the SNI PhD program in Nanoscience.Your positionX-ray crystallography at cryogenic temperatures (100 K, Cryo-MX), has played an important role in the structural characterization of proteins, such as enzymes, channels and receptors. Roughly 90% of all crystal structures in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) have been recorded using deep-frozen protein crystals. Although highly successful with regard to solving structures free of radiation damage, it has gradually become clear that the protein conformations observed by Cryo- MX may not necessarily be physiologically relevant. Rapid cooling of the protein crystals can populate non-physiological conformations of proteins because enthalpically stabilized states dominate over high entropy states [1]. The rapid cooling process does not allow full equilibration, with the result that the observed structures may represent artificial conformations – neither biologically relevant nor thermodynamically favored [2]. Because polar interactions are temperature sensitive, the precise arrangements of protein residues, ligands and solvent molecules in the active sites of enzymes, channels and receptors are prone to significant change upon cryo-cooling. These changes can lead to false conclusions.This project aims to implement room temperature (RT) crystallography methods to determine enzyme structures that are physiologically more relevant that those emerging from standard measurements at cryogenic temperatures.[1] D.

PhD Position on Innovative Catalytic Strategies to Combat Cancer (P2106)
University of Basel, Basel, CH
The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel invites highly motivated scientists to apply for the SNI PhD program in Nanoscience.Your positionWithin this PhD project, we aim to attach metal-containing cofactors (Mcof) to the surface of cancer cells, and to use their catalytic properties to uncage specific drugs. With this ambitious goal in mind, the Mcof will be equipped with a high-affinity antagonist that binds tightly to proteins that are overexpressed on the surface of cancer cells.To evaluate the therapeutic potential of this strategy, we have selected somatostatin, a G-coupled protein receptor that is highly present on the surface of various forms of cancer. Cyclic disulfide-bridged peptides (Cyc-peptS–S), developed in the group of Prof. Fani, display exquisite affinity and selectivity for somatostatin receptors. Upon covalent linking of the peptide with the metal cofactor to afford Cyc-peptS–S–Mcof, we anticipate that the catalytically active cofactor will accumulate in the proximity of cancer tissues that display multiple copies of the somatostatin receptor. Upon addition of a caged drug, the catalytic activity of the cofactor Cyc-peptS–S–Mcof will lead to the site-specific uncaging of the drug where its action is required (an illustration can be found in the project description at www.phd.nanoscience.ch). In the past years, the Ward group has pioneered several catalytic strategies that lead to the uncaging of various fluorescent probes and drugs in the presence of cells. Reactions include olefin metathesis, transfer-hydrogenation, allylic substitution, hydroamination reactions, etc. In the course of his/her PhD, the researcher will work in a highly stimulating environment at the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine. The work will be carried out in close collaboration between the Ward and Fani groups.Your profileCandidates are required to have an MS degree in natural sciences, and should especially have a relevant experimental background in organic synthesis as well as in any of the following: mammalian cell culture, molecular biology, flow cytometry and FACS, high-throughput experimentation.We offer youExcellent scientific and social environmentVery competitive employment conditionsMembership in a very supportive and recognised communityThe successful candidate will join an attractive interdisciplinary programme as a junior SNI member, together with the ~30 currently supported scientists, and will benefit from strong personal support, a strongly interdisciplinary social environment, and training in soft skills offered by the PhD program and the many internal SNI events.

PhD Position- Structure and Assembly Mechanism of the Ninjurin-1 Membrane Perforation Pore in Executing Cell Death
University of Basel, Basel, CH
The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel invites highly motivated scientists to apply for the SNI PhD program in Nanoscience.Your positionThe rupture of the eukaryotic plasma membrane mediated by the membrane protein ninjurin-1 is the defining endpoint of multiple different types of cell death. We aim at deciphering the mechanisms of ninjurin-1 in assembling membrane rupturing pores by a unique combination of structural biology methods, nanotechnological approaches, and super-resolution light microscopy.Background: Eukaryotic cells possess remarkable control mechanisms to retain functionality during their life cycle and to ensure their proper removal in the multicellular context [1,2]. Among these mechanisms are multiple forms of cell death, most of which end with the rupture of the plasma cell membrane. So far, rupture of this membrane was generally thought to be a consequence of osmotic pressure, caused by the uncontrolled influx of water. It was recently discovered that plasma membrane rupture is an active process, mediated by the protein ninjurin-1 [3]. Ninjurin-1 is a ubiquitously expressed, 16-kDa plasma membrane protein, and conserved from fruit fly to man [4] Understanding this process at atomic level will be crucial for therapeutic intervention.The goal of this thesis: We want to determine the structure of the ninjurin-1 membrane inserted pore at atomic level and unravel its insertion mechanism in the cellular context. We aim at the atomic resolution structure of the ninjurin-1 pores by single-particle cryo-electron microscopy [5,6]. In addition, we will characterize the ninjurin-1 system by NMR spectroscopy [6]. In parallel, we will monitor ninjurin-1 oligomeric assembly and pore formation by AFM and TEM [7–10]. Time-lapse multiparametric AFM will allow us to image the pore formation process at a resolution of ≈1-2 nm and to simultaneously map how ninjurin-1 insertion and assembly alters the mechanical properties of the target membrane. Along a third line of research, we will also study the pore assembly in living cells by MinFlux microscopy, which allows an isotropic resolution of 1-5 nm of fluorophores in 3D [11,12].This project follows a long-standing and highly fruitful collaboration between the Hiller and Müller labs, combining their complementary expertise in biophysics and structural biology [7,10,13]. With the relocation of the D-BSSE to the Schellenmätteli campus in mid-2022, the two labs will be neighbours. The student will be embedded in both groups and have full infrastructure access at both departments.[1] Broz P et al. Nat Rev Immunol 20, 143–157 (2020), [2] Broz P et al.
