Postdoc Researching Photophysics of Protein-based Imaging Labels and Sensorshysics of Protein-based Imaging Labels and Sensors

TUM - Technical University Munich

Munich, Germany

The candidate will work on studying the mechanisms of photophysical functioning of chromophore-bearing proteins (such as GFP-like, Bacteriophytochromes or Phycobiliproteins) using and developing spectroscopic methods. The gained insight will fuel the development of new labels and sensors on the molecular level. The candidate will bridge between the applications, the technical developments of imaging-setups and the protein engineering and support all approaches with the photophysical insight. One of our main foci are photo-switching proteins. Here the candidate will further explore and exploit their intricate and exciting mechanisms towards driving such proteins towards a use in applications – primarily optoacoustics. The work will be conducted in close collaboration with other laboratories of TUM and the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich (HMGU) that are leading in the respective research areas, e.g. setup building or protein structure elucidation. Hence, the position is an exciting interface between basic photophysical research, development of molecular tools as well as imaging.

Qualification:

The successful applicant must have the following:

  • High motivation, curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence
  • Master Degree and Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry or similar field
  • Background in chromophores, photophysics, photochemistry
  • Experience with excited state photophysics, and photoisomerization processed will be appreciated as well as understanding of (protein-) environmental effects on the photophysical properties of chromophores
  • Experience in optical spectroscopy techniques
  • Interest in imaging
  • Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment
  • Excellent command of the English language
