Praktika

Das Scienteens Lab bietet auch einwöchige Praktika innerhalb der Forschungsgruppen des Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) an. Während dieser Praktika wird motivierten Schülern die Möglichkeit geboten, mehr über die wissenschaftliche Forschung zu erfahren (wissenschaftliche Methode, Laborarbeit, Bioinformatik, Modellierung, ...), und in einem Labor neben erfahrenen Wissenschaftlern zu arbeiten.

 

Finden Sie hier neue Angebote für Praktika für Schülerinnen und Schüler für das Jahr 2020.
Alle Praktika sind in englischer Sprache.
Bei Interesse schicken Sie bitte Ihren Lebenslauf sowie ein Motivationsschreiben an Dr Maren Krüger.

Praktika 2020

Human metabolism and its repair systems

Internship within the Enzymology and Metabolism group lead by Dr. Carole Linster

Internship period: 02.06.2020 – 05.06.2020 (4 days during Pentecost holidays, 8 hours/day)
Number of places available: 2
Language: English
Supervising scientist: Myrto Patraskaki

The research focus of our group is on better understanding the physiological functions of recently identified proteins and metabolite repair mechanisms and their role in disease development. The aim of this specific project is to generate a zebrafish model of a novel infantile neurological disorder, caused by metabolite repair deficiency, in order to better understand the disease development and the underlying molecular mechanisms.

During the internship, the student will get the chance to:
- Learn about human metabolism and its repair systems
- Learn the basics about zebrafish biology and development as well as its use as a laboratory model organism
- Work in the laboratory and get familiar with basic widely used molecular biology techniques

Deadline to apply: 23 February

Identifying molecules and pollutants in the environment

Internship within the Environmental Cheminformatics Group lead by Assoc. Prof. Emma Schymanski.

Internship period: 02.06.2020 – 05.06.2020 (4 days, 8 hours/day)
Number of places available: 2
Language: English
Supervising scientist: Dr Randolph Singh

The research focus of the group is using experimental and computational mass spectrometry tools to understand different scientific questions that can range from identifying unknown molecules in a biological system or discovering new pollutants in environmental matrices.

During the internship, the student will get the chance to:
- work in the laboratory and learn how water samples are processed for contaminant analyses,
- observe how environmental samples are analyzed using mass spectrometry,
- help analyze data generated to identify contaminants in the water,
- understand the fate and transport of environmental contaminants and how these can have potential negative effects on human health.

Requirements: The group welcomes students interested in both experimental and computational approaches to understanding chemical pollution. Interest in the environmental sciences is a plus.

Deadline to apply: 23 February
