Molecular Nanoengineering group at the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering, Aalto University (Finland) is looking for a motivated and talented Postdoctoral Researcher to join the group. The chosen candidates will carry out experimental interdisciplinary research on synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials, DNA nanotechnology and nanoplasmonics in a multidisciplinary and international environment with excellent instrumentation and facilities.
The Molecular Nanoengineering group operates at the interface of nanoscience, DNA nanotechnology, molecular self-assembly and nanophotonics with particular focus on DNA-based self-assembled systems with functionalities tailored for biosensing, active plasmonics and nanomachinery. The group is led by Assistant Professor Anton Kuzyk.
Your research will be focused on development of novel synthesis methods that enable transferring of high spatial accuracy of DNA origami technique into complex morphologies ofinorganic nanostructures. Furthermore, postdoctoral researchers are expected to propose his/her own research ideas and to be an active member of the group/department by taking part in project management duties and guiding M.Sc. and doctoral students. Teaching responsibilities will be decided according to the candidate’s interests and experience.
