About the Project

The aim of this project is to establish a nanoarray-platform for high-throughput, multiplexed single-molecule experiments. In a first step, this involves the combination of the following three techniques: (i) DNA origami nanoarrays, (ii) DNA origami barcodes, and (iii) DNA PAINT super-resolution microscopy. Subsequently, candidates will apply the platform to a proof-of-principle biophysical/biological system. From there on, there will be ample opportunities and the future direction of the research will be determined together with the candidate.

Requirements: We are looking for a student with a background in (bio)physics, chemistry, biochemistry, or a related field (Master’s degree). Candidates should possess a passion for experimental research and quantitative data analysis as well as basic wet-lab skills.

Position/Salary: TV-L E13 75%

Group: Prof. Tim Liedl, LMU Physics Department
