1988-1990 PostDoc at Roche Institute of Molecular Biology, Nutley, New Jersey, USA

1990-1995 Assistant Professor University of Osnabrück

1995-2000 Associate Professor University of Osnabrück

2000-        Professor VU Amsterdam

2008-        Dept. Head Molecular Cell Biology


General research interests: functional dynamics of proteins, i.e. how structural changes and intra- or intermolecular interactions lead to function. Methods used are ranging from Molecular Biology (cloning and mutagenesis) to Biochemistry (protein expression, purification and modification) and Biophysics (fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy, surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy etc.).
