Marie-Curie Early Stage Researcher on High


Speed Molecular Recognition Microscopy

The Atomic Force Microscopy Group (PI: Prof. Peter Hinterdorfer) at the


Institute of Biophysics, Department of Applied Experimental Biophysics at Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz is


looking for an early stage researcher


(predoc)
to integrate molecular recognition force microscopy into a high


speed atomic force microscope.

The contract


will be within the framework ‘Scanning probe microscopies for nanoscale fast,


tomographic and composition imaging - SPM2.0’ (ref. 721874) of


the Marie Curie Initial Training Network.


The successful candidate will be


integrated into multidisciplinary training and research program of a consortium


consisting of internationally renowned scanning probe microscopy specialists.

Requirements:

   
Degree and Master on any field of Physics, Biophysics


or Engineering (completed before the contract starting date)

Multidisciplinary qualifications (Physics/Bio,


Engineering/Bio etc.). Knowledge of Atomic Force Microscopy, specifically Force


Spectroscopy and High Speed Atomic Force microscopy will be a plus

High level of English and good communication skills

Ability to maintain accurate and up to date records

   
Ability to organise and prioritise own work and


organise research within the project schedule

Computer literacy, analytical skills and effective

team working
