Welcome to the homepage of the research group of Prof. 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.

Where on Campus are our labs and offices?


  • 09/2017 We welcome our new group members Carolin Hopmann, Laura Fröhlich, Manuela Bedenbender and Ayah Alasmer.
  • 08/2018 We are looking for two Phd students with a backround in biology or food/analytical chemistry as well as for an experienced postdoc.
  • 09/2018 We are co-organizing the European Workshop on Lipid Mediators (EWLM). The scientific program can be found here. Registration is still possible! Join us from 12-14th of september in Brussels.
  • 09/2018 We just showed that the plasma oxylipin pattern varies massively during the day (Ostermann, 2018). So if you are planning using oxylipins as biomarker be very carefull when regarding the time point of blood sampling.
  • Job postings


    We have several open positions for master/diploma students. If you are studying food-chemistry, biochemistry or related fields of modern life sciences and are interested please contact Dr. Schebb.

    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 fields 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.
