The successful applicant will be employed by the RWTH Aachen, but the work will be conducted at Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching, nearby Munich. The work will be performed in close cooperation with the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich.
The research activities of the AG Biophysik aim to establish a fundamental, physics-based understanding of the function of bio-macromolecular systems. In this respect proteins and (protein based) macromolecular complexes, also within in their cellular context, are of particular interest for our research topics (https://www.institut-1a.physik.rwth-aachen.de/cms/INSTITUT-1A/Forschung/~iecj/Biophysik).
At the MLZ (http://www.mlz-garching.de
) Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) is operating a suite of high performance neutron scattering instruments. In addition, it is actively pursuing a research program in soft matter science offering a highly interdisciplinary and international environment. We are an innovative research group with experience in both fields SANS and IR spectroscopy and in-situ techniques and equipped with excellent experimental methods embedded in the international research environment of the JCNS.
