The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen (Lower Saxony, Germany) is one of the largest institutes of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science and conducts basic research to advance knowledge and benefit society. Innovative projects and interdisciplinary cooperation characterize research within the Max Planck Society.
The Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics (Prof. Dr. Helmut Grubmüller) invites applications for a position as PhD Student (f/m/d) to address the research topic "Theory and Algorithms for Structure Determination" from Ultrafast Single Molecule X-FEL Diffraction or from Fluctuation-Correlation X-Ray Scattering.
The aim of the research project is to develop Bayesian or Deep Learning methods to obtain high-resolution molecular structures and dynamics from sparse and noisy experimental data. More details: www.mpibpc.mpg.de/9660732/SM-Ultrafast-XRay-Diffraction
The successful candidate has a keen interest and strong skills in computational molecular physics and probability theory / machine learning, and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research and collaboration with experimental groups.
Eligible candidates hold (or expect to complete soon) a Masters or equivalent degree. The group language is English, so no German language skills are required – but it’s a great opportunity for you to learn German! The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
