Postdoctoral Fellow: Single Molecule Force Spectroscopy

A postdoctoral position in single molecule biophysics is available in the
Messersmith group at Northwestern University. The overall goals of the
research are to elucidate the molecular details of mussel adhesive protein
adhesion (for example, see PNAS 2006, 103, 12999). We seek self-motivated
individuals interested in a stimulating and interdisciplinary research
environment where fundamental biophysics experiments inform the development
of biologically inspired materials. For more information on the group,
please visit our website

Experience in designing, conducting and interpreting single molecule pulling
experiments is required. Candidates with experience in AFM single molecule
pulling experiments, cantilever tip modification, and peptide or polymer
chemistry are especially encouraged to apply. The position will remain open
until filled.

To apply, please send a CV, statement of research accomplishments and future
interests, and the names of three referees to:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
