to avoid discrimination on the basis of which country or institute you
studied at. Rich or poor, North or South. As long as it is a reputable,
accredited institute you are eligible.

How it works: For now, we are assuming that your personal finances
are such that you need an ANU fellowship to do a PhD. We don't want to
waste your time, or make you pay an application fee unnecessarily. We
will therefore only recommend you apply for a PhD if you have a
viable chance of winning an ANU scholarship. Even then it is still
a very competitive process (we can make no promises). There is no
separate scholarship application. You simply apply for a PhD and tick a
scholarship box. Entry to the PhD program is open to applicants with a
Bachelor degree and having completed (or in the process of completing)
an Honours or Masters research (as opposed to coursework) degree that
comprises at least a half year, full time research component and a thesis
(5,000-10,000 words). Applicants with significant research experience
and publications may be deemed eligible if their achievements can be
justified as equivalent to completing an Honours/Masters degree.

Theapplication form is here, along with general information onhow to
applyand the details about theDoctor of Philosophy program. But read
on now as you need to plan ahead in case you are shortlisted. In brief,
your PhD application, due by31 August,requires:

Academic transcripts & graduation/completion certificates from your
Bachelor and Honours/MSc degree (in their original language and, if
needed, a translation), with grading scale information.A current CV,

Oportunidades de master, doctorado y postdoc en microbiología en Alemania

The newly founded Emmy Noether group, The Schuller Lab, opens in the attractive and historic city of Marburg. We are located at the Research Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO), a joint institute of the Philipps University and the MPI for Terrestrial Microbiology - A hot spot for microbiological research in Germany. We cooperate closely with the laboratory of Prof. Volker Müller (University of Frankfurt), a world-renowned expert in the field of microbiology and physiology of acetobacteria.

The Schuller laboratory is particularly interested in biological systems responsible for biological carbon fixation, biological energy conversion and transport. We use the tools of high-resolution cryoEM single particle analysis, biochemistry and molecular biology to understand the mechanism of enzymes and metabolic processes in organisms that have high potential for Synthetic Biology approaches. The new knowledge could be used to create improved industrial microbes for the production of chemical compounds, to produce solar fuels and to sequester CO2 to combat global warming.

Acetobacteria are used in industrial-scale plants (see to capture and recycle CO2. Thanks to a unique set of enzymes, they can thrive in a gas mixture called syngas (CO2+CO+H2) that is waste in industrial processes. These enzymes are part of the Wood-Ljungdahl pathway, an ancient metabolic pathway that combines the fixation of carbon dioxide with the synthesis of ATP and is therefore considered one of the oldest life-supporting pathways on Earth. The projects are a collaborative effort with the Müller group (University of Frankfurt) and include the structural characterization of newly discovered metabolic enzymes from acetobacteria.

The techniques involved include standard molecular biological techniques, purification and handling of multi-protein complexes, high-resolution imaging by cryo-EM, image processing, 3D reconstruction and molecular modelling.

If you have a university degree in biochemistry, life sciences, physics or other related fields and have a strong interest in structural microbiology, you should contact Jan Schuller ( and inquire about open projects.
