Beschreibung: A PhD position is available to work under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Frank Cichos at the department Molecular Nanophotonics on the interactions of single polymer chains and the formation of amyloid fibrils in a thermophoretic trap.

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate with a Master’s degree in Physics with excellent English proficiency. The successful candidate will perform cutting edge experimental research on the formation of peptide aggregates and the trapping of single and multiple biologically relevant macromolecules in solution. The candidate should 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 analysis would 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 and GRADES in each course (for MS and BS), 4) the names of at least two consenting referees should be sent to cichos@physik.uni-leipzig.de. The application deadline is November 15, 2020.
