Subject: 19.10.01 Open PhD and Postdoc positions for the project "Macromolecular Structures from Single Molecule X-Ray Diffraction Experiments"
The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry is one of the largest institutes of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science and conducts basic research to advance knowledge and benefit society. Innovative projects and interdisciplinary cooperation characterize research within the Max Planck Society. The Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics (Prof. Dr. Helmut Grubmuller) invites applications for a position as PhD Student or Postdoc (f/m/d)(Code Number 26-19) for the project "Macromolecular Structures from Single Molecule X-Ray Diffraction Experiments" to advance methods to extract high resolution structure information from single molecule X-ray diffraction data. In these diffract and destroy experiments, femtosecond X-ray free electron laser pulses are shot at a single molecule, and the diffraction pattern is recorded. Depending on sample size, only very few photons are scattered in each shot, such that many scattering images have to be combined. The analysis is complicated by the fact that for each shot the orientation of the sample molecule is random and unknown. We have recently shown that as few as three recorded photons per image suffice. Using recent experimental data, you will develop, implement, and test a rigorous Bayesian approach, which holds the promise to drastically reduce the number of required photons, thus rendering single molecule X-ray structure determination feasible. Please refer to our corresponding publication for further details: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-04830-4 The successful candidate for either position has a keen interest and strong skills in theoretical and computational physics, mathematics, and probability theory and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaborative research. PhD candidates hold (or expect to complete soon) a Masters or equivalent degree; Postdocs hold a PhD or equivalent degree in any of these or a related field. PhD students will have the opportunity to participate in one of several available PhD programs, with three years funding and a possibility of extension, in collaboration with the University of Gottingen. Masters students aiming at a fast track PhD are also welcome. The Postdoc position is limited to two years with a possibility of extension. Payment and benefits are based on the TVD (German collective wage agreement for the public sector) guidelines. The starting date is flexible. The group language is English, so no German language skills are required but its a great opportunity for you to learn German!
