Beschreibung: At the the I. Physikalisches Institut of the RWTH Aachen in the AG Biophysik of Prof. Dr. Jörg Fitter we are looking for a PhD student
(m/f/d). The PhD project will be performed in close collaboration with the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) in Garching, nearby Munich, Germany. The work will be performed at the JCNS which is operating a suite of high performance neutron scattering instruments at the FRM II in Garching. The place of work for this PhD project is Garching, nearby Munich.
The successful candidate will develop a novel in-situ infrared (IR) spectrometer at the small-angle neutron scattering (SANS)
instruments operated JCNS in order to monitor the structural changes of proteins by a
combination of neutron scattering and infrared absorption on the very same sample. The formation of amyloid fibrils shall be
investigated playing a key role in diseases like Alzheimer.
Methoden: Development of a novel IR spectrometer based on Quantum Cascade Lasers which are a promising new infrared light source with a huge potential for many applications.

• Sample characterization by CD-spectroscopy, UV-visible and IR spectroscopy
• Performing neutron scattering experiments at the JCNS in Garching and elsewhere
• Presentation of the results at conferences and publication of scientific articles
• Interdisciplinary teamwork and supervision of Bachelor and Master students
