Postdoc position (f/m) (biophysicist, physicist, biochemist)
The center of advanced european studies and research (caesar) is an Institute of the Max Planck Society dedicated to the Neurosciences, Cell Biology, and Biophysics.
The recently established Max-Planck Research Fellow Group “Chemical Biology” is conducting research in the field of DNA nanotechnology using interlocked DNA architectures and DNA origami. In particular we aim to employ DNA rotaxanes as a basis for building complex supramolecular assemblies like rotational nanomotors, contraction/expansion elements (?DNA muscle?) and other nanomechanical building blocks. An important part of this research project is to verify the structure and mechanical functions of these construction elements. For the project “Cryo-electron microscopy of DNA nano-architectures” we are offering a Postdoctoral position (f/m) as a biophysicist, physicist, or biochemist.
The candidate will be in contact with a wide spectrum of experimental techniques like: cryo-electron microscopy of molecular assemblies, atomic force microscopy, dynamic imaging, and other high-resolution optical techniques. The project will be under the supervision of Prof. Dr. M. Famulok.
You will work in a dynamic and motivated team embedded in the scientific community of the Max Planck Society and the universities of Bonn and Cologne. Caesar offers a family friedly and international atmosphere, and supports individual development with a set of trainings and seminars. Caesar provides a very modern infrastructure in an attractive building located in the park of the Rheinaue.
