About Us

Motility (the capability to perform active movement) forms an essential part of all life processes. The driving force for motility is produced by motor enzymes, which can convert chemical energy into mechanical work with high efficiency.

Our research is centered on

  • myosins, a superfamily of motor enzymes that move along actin filaments to power cytokinesis, cellular movements and cell shape changes, and
  • DNA helicases, enzymes that unwind DNA duplex structures to drive processes of genome maintenance and DNA recombination.

JOB VACANCY

Ph. D. studentship

Ph.D. fellowships are available in our laboratory to study novel mechanisms and inhibitors of DNA helicases and actomyosin-based motility in a stimulating international environment at the Department of Biochemistry, Eötvös University.
The project work will be complemented by a comprehensive doctoral training program in Structural Biochemistry offered by Eötvös University.
Previous project work experience of applicants in biochemistry or biophysics or molecular biology is desirable.
Please submit your CV and motivation letter via email.

Postdoctoral position

Postdoctoral appointments are available in our laboratory to study problems related to molecular mechanisms of DNA helicases, myosin motors and their inhibitors, or other areas of biochemistry/molecular biophysics, subject to discussion with applicants.
Our lab and the Department of Biochemistry at Eötvös University offers a stimulating, liberal, international environment in the historic but modern city of Budapest.
Applicants are expected to hold or be about to obtain a Ph.D. in biochemistry or biophysics or molecular biology.
Please submit your CV and motivation letter via email.
