Welcome to the Research Group of Prof. Dr. Carsten Schmuck

News from our group: Double strike for Hao Jiang

Hao Jiang, a former postdoc in our group, just received an offer for an associate professorship at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan city. Congratulations Hao. Well deserved. Furthermore his work on self-assembling peptide amphiphiles just got accepted in Soft Matter. In this work he shows how the morphology of the aggregates depends on the delicate interplay of different noncovalent interactions which can be influenced by concentration and solvent. Watch out for the paper.

Interacting Molecules!

We are fascinated by supramolecular chemistry. We strive to understand how molecules interact with each other, how non-covalent interactions control the stability and selectivity of molecular interactions and how we can use this understanding to develop supamolecular systems that either bind to biological targets such as proteins or nucleic acids or self-assemble with themselves to form supramolecular polymers and gels.

Explore our websites to learn more about who we are and what we do. Of course as a university group we are also devoted to teaching and you will find some useful information here regarding the classes and lectures we teach.

Open positions

We are always looking for talented and enthusiastic coworkers who want to be part of our research group on all levels (bachelor or master student, PhD student or postdoc).

Interested in developing and synthesizing new supramolecular ligands and testing how they bind to a protein or can be used as an artifical gene transfection vector? Or do you prefer to study self-assembling molecules and explore how you can use such compounds for switchable polymers and gels? If you want to become part of our group contact us (email).
