Chemistry department / working group of Prof. Wolfgang Binder at Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg is seeking PhD / PostDoc positions in the area of polymer science / protein science. The area of research is located within folding / refolding of hybrid polymers, with a focus on synthetic polymer science, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
Applicants should have a finished PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or physical chemistry. In particular the following positions can be filled, according to expertise.
PostDoc positions (initial term for 2 years, up to a total of 4 years) in (cooperative) protein / hybrid polymer assembly. Aim is the development of (synthetic) hybrid-aggregating proteins, containing both, proteins and artificial folding elements. Requires skills in organic chemistry, protein chemistry and structural biology. Contains elements of synthetic chemistry (polymerization), CD-spectroscopy, protein / peptide-chemistry. Requires a PhD in synthetic polymer science, protein / peptide chemistry or physical chemistry of (folded) assemblies, including knowledge of secondary structure determination methododologies.
Applications (including CV, letter of motivation, valid documents for degrees) should be directed to Ms. Anke Hassi, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scientific questions are to be directed to Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Binder (Wolfgang.email@example.com).
