We seek to fill a Ph.D. student position in our research group. The subject of this Ph.D. thesis will be the investigation biomolecules as they transition from the solution phase to the gas phase during soft ionization.

Job description

A combination of mass spectrometric methods and optical spectroscopy (laser-induced fluorescence, FRET) will be employed to assess the dynamics of the desolvation and structural changes. Motivation to work with sophisticated instrumentation (some custom-designed / home-huilt), laser spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry will be important.

Your profile

Prerequisites: M.Sc. degree, Diploma or equivalent in Chemistry or related area, strong background in physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, optics or instrumentation.

Starting date: mid-2021 / upon mutual agreement.
