Rudolf Virchow Center / University of WürzburgWürzburg
The Rudolf Virchow Center / Research Center for Experimental Biomedicine of
the University of Würzburg offers at the earliest possible date a position as
PhD student (f/m) (Physics / Engineering)
In the field of Nanophotonics & Biophysics
In this cross-disciplinary approach we combine high-resolution concepts of
fluorescence microscopy with tricks from material sciences. Our approach
involves designing and nanofabricating biocompatible nanostructured
microscopy slides and coverglasses for live cell applications that give rise to
fundamentally new optical properties and the manipulation of light for
The project involves modelling, design and development of such
metamaterial based substrates that serve as modified coverglasses for
live-cell imaging. The overall goal is to detect conformational changes and
cellular receptor interactions even for relatively large donor-acceptor-distances
that are typically not accessible using classic (single molecule) imaging. The
project particularly requires enthusiasm for plasmonics and high-resolution
We are interested in a PhD candidate with strong background in condensed
matter physics holding a Master‘s degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering or an
equivalent level of professional qualification and experience. Ideally, the
candidate has experience in thin film deposition and characterization. Advanced
skills in experimental and numerical modeling of nanophotonic systems is
mandatory. Experience in superresolution and single-molecule imaging is
desired, however not a prerequisite.
The position is initially funded for a period of one year and will be extended in the
case of a positive evaluation. The salary for this temporary position is
commensurate with training and experience according to Collective Agreement
for the Public Service of German Federal States TV-L (for a three-year
dissertation). Female scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. Disabled
applicants will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualification.
Applications including cover letter, detailed CV, copies of certificates, and contact
information of two referees, should be sent as a single pdf file (no more than 10
MB) via email to email@example.com until 1st March 2018.
