Oroboros Science Scholarships are offered for focused research projects on mitochondrial physiology and high-resolution respirometry. Recipients will join the Oroboros-Team for extending international cooperations in the O2k-Network. Recepients of national support or grants from international exchange programmes are most welcome.
Β» Oroboros Laboratory: visiting scientists
We share our experience and expertise in high-resolution respirometry. PhD students or postdocs may join us for a defined project in the Oroboros Mitochondrial Research Laboratory. The scholarship will provide an in-depth introduction or extension of previously gained expertise in
  • the technical details of high-resolution respirometry including O2k-MultiSensor applications;
  • the preparation of permeabilized tissue (in particular muscle fibers), tissue homogenates or permeabilized cells for OXPHOS analysis;
  • the conceptual basis of OXPHOS analysis with respiratory substrate-uncoupler-inhibitor titration (SUIT) protocols when working with isolated mitochondria, permeabilized cells or tissue homogenates;
  • participation as a tutor in an O2k-Workshop on high-resolution respirometry.

The Oroboros Science Scholarship may initiate an application for a postdoc grant (Marie Curie Fellowships etc.) to join us for a full postdoc project. See also:

How to apply

The Mitochondrial Oroboros by Odra Noel
Contact Erich Gnaiger and Verena Laner.
To initiate a project, we will define the project with a realistic time plan for the experimental work, data analysis and summary of results, fitting into the research interests of the collaborative teams. A minimum of three months appears to be most practical, and the time required for data analysis and interpretation must not be ignored. Oroboros Instruments provides financial support, accommodation and free registration for an O2k-Workshop.
