Welcome to the homepage of the research group of PD Dr. Nils Helge Schebb.

Our research focuses on the investigation of biological activities employing instrumental analytical methods. By providing quantitative data about the activity and concentration of compounds on the molecular stage we seek to improve the systematic/molecular understanding of their protective as well as toxicological effects.

    Job postings


    We have several open positions in Hannover and Wuppertal for master/diploma students. If you are studying food-chemistry, biochemistry or related fields of modern life sciences and are interested in a challenging project for your master/ diploma thesis please contact Dr. Schebb.
    Available projects are in the area of nutrio/pharamacokinetic studies, metabolism research, biochemistry (enzyme kinetics) analytical chemistry and metabolomics. A detailed description (in German) of a few projects can be found here.

    PhD Thesis

    We encourage highly motivated candidates to apply as PhD students in the field of life sciences. If you have acquired knowledge and skills in biochemistry and/or bio-analytical chemistry e.g. in the fiels of pharmacology and toxicology and are interested in performing a research project in the area of food chemistry, molecular nutrition or metabolomics, please contact Dr. Schebb. For an overview about ongoing research projects refer to the research section. Currently we are seeking a PhD student (analytical chemistry) with experience in work with animal models (rat and mice).
