Dr. Thomas Frischmuth, baseclick GmbH, Tutzing (Munich area), Germany
The European School of DNA Nanotechnology (EScoDNA) is announcing a PhD position at baseclick GmbH in Tutzing (Munich area). The applicant for this project should hold a master (or equivalent) in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, biology or biotechnology. She/He ideally has acquired experience in the field of nucleic acids (synthesis and modification) as well as labeling and bioconjugation or DNA‑based self‑assembly during her/his master thesis. Experimental knowledge of organic chemistry, analytics, microscopy or single-molecule visualization techniques is desirable.
The PhD position is part of the European School of DNA Nanotechnology (EScoDNA), an Initial Training Network (ITN) under the European Commission's Marie Curie Actions research fellowship programme. EScoDNA will foster the development of a new generation of scientists with the skills required to meet futures challenges in bionanotechnology, from fundamental science to novel applications. Initially fourteen new PhD students and two postdoctoral fellows will join the network in 2013. The participating universities are: Aarhus University (Denmark), Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich (Germany), Technical University of Munich (Germany), Karolinska Institute (Sweden), University of Oxford (UK) and the private companies Vipergen ApS (Denmark) and baseclick GmbH (Germany).
Applicants are expected to have lived less than 12 months in Germany during the last 3 years.
