PhD Position - Uni Leipzig - Solid-state NMR on photoreceptor protein

The Institute of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Leipzig invites applications for a PhD position in the field of solid-state NMR characterization of photoreceptors. To be appointed from 01.02.16 or later. The
position is limited to 3 years.

The NMR research group of Jörg Matysik works on the development of hyperpolarization and optical NMR techniques for studying photo/spin-chemically relevant systems. The successful candidate will work on an interdisciplinary research project combining biochemical work and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. This DFG financed project aims for understanding of the electronic orbital structure of the chromophore in photoreceptors of the phytochrome family.

The candidate should hold a MSc degree and be highly motivated with a strong interest in protein chemistry and biophysics. Previous experience biochemistry of proteins and is desirable. Experience in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy is of advantage.
