Motor proteins studied at the single molecule level
Group: Prof. Claudia Veigel, Department of Cellular Physiology, LMU München
The aim of the project is to study motor proteins of the cytoskeleton using high resolution single molecule technology including custom built optical tweezers at nanometre spatial and submillisecond temporal resolution, single molecule fluorescence andsingle particle image processing of electron micrographs.
The applicant should hold a masters (or equivalent) inphysics, chemistry or biology/biophysics. Previous experience, e.g.through a masters project, in single molecule biophysics is an advantage.
All candidates have to apply via CeNS’ online application tool. Other forms of application will not be accepted.
The PhD position is fully funded, according to the German salary system TV-L. No tuition fees.
30 vacation days.
Up to 14 months compensated parental leave possible.
