The project group “Single Molecule Microbiology” is looking for PhD students with a keen interest in applying physical methods to complex biological systems to start from December 2014. Our group develops quantitative, experimental and theoretical approaches to study the spatial and dynamic principles of organisation in living organisms.
Candidates should feel comfortable working in a multidisciplinary and international environment. The projects will combine knowledge of advanced fluorescence microscopy, single molecule methods, molecular biology techniques and quantitative data analysis. Previous experience in e.g. microbiology, applied optics or bioinformatics is ideal.
Our lab is located at the Department of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology of the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology and is embedded into the LOEWE center for synthetic microbiology (SYNMIKRO) in Marburg.
