About the Project
We are seeking ahighly motivated PhD candidate with a Master’s degree in Physics with excellent English proficiency. The successful candidatewill perform cutting edge experimental research on the formation of peptide aggregates and the trapping of single and multiple biologically relevant macromolecules in solution. The candidateshould therefore be committed to collaborative and interdisciplinary work, and have excellent oral and written communication skills (records of creative and independent scientific research and active participation in its dissemination in peer-reviewed journals are welcome).
The experimental work will and allow the successful applicant to acquire expert skills and knowledge on optical microscopy, polymer physics, macromolecular dynamics, thermophoresis and protein aggregation. Experience with modern optical microscopy and statistical data analysiswould be useful.
The working language is English. Salaries will be according to DFG standards.
Applications including 1) a letter of interest (max. 1 page), clearly stating the specific motivation of the candidate to join the group, work on this project, career goals, etc., 2) a CV, 3) grade transcripts or equivalent record of excellent academic performance, clearly indicating courses taken andGRADESin each course (for MS and BS), 4) the names of at least two consenting referees should be sent to [email protected]. The application deadline is August 15,2020.
