Description:

Background about PhD Position in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry at University of Amsterdam.

Cell division in bacteria is executed by a large protein complex that comprises more than ten different proteins.How this protein complex establishes cytokinesis is largely unknown. They have identified a new cell division protein, SepF, which is conserved in Gram-positive bacteria and cyanobacteria. This protein makes very large protein rings that bundle the tubulin-like protein FtsZ, the key bacterial cell division protein, into large tubular structures.

We have now strong evidence that SepF also anchors FtsZ to the cell membrane.

This PhD project will focus on the molecular mechanism of SepF in cell division with the ultimate goal to understand how bacterial cell division works.

Since cell division is a promising target for novel antibiotics, this project will also support the development of future antimicrobial compounds, which is important considering the worrying rise in multi drug resistant pathogens.
