In BioMolStruct we assemble a unique group of researchers from three Universities in Graz, funded by the FWF doc.funds program. Our program will spearheads the growing demand for scientists in integrative structural biology with a solid experimental and theoretical background in molecular biology, biophysics, and structural biology. The program sustains specialized education with deep knowledge in integrative structural biology of dynamic biomolecules and a broad methodological portfolio to address them. To tackle the major challenge of combining complementary structural biology techniques in an integrative approach into one training program, BioMolStruct offers highly competitive thesis projects covering basic research embedded in (patho)physiological contexts.
All three participating universities support BioMolStruct, from cutting-edge research infrastructure to integration into the institution's regular activities. Moreover, all universities provide additional own funds for ongoing operations, institutional anchoring of the program as well as substantial, direct financial support.
