Zwei Dissertanten-Stellen auf dem Gebiet "DNA Nanotechnology and Atomic Force Microscopy" an der JKU Linz  (Created: 2017-07-18)

The Institute of Biophysics, Department of Applied Experimental Biophysics at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz is looking for two PhD students to generate DNA origami nanostructures and examine their biophysical properties with molecular recognition force microscopy to facilitate biotechnological applications.

The contract will be embedded in the project ‘Biomolecular recognition and selective transport within nanoscale confined space’ funded by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF). PIs in this collaborative research project are Prof. Stefan Howorka (DNA Origami) and Prof. Peter Hinterdorfer (Atomic Force Microscopy).


  • Degree and Master on any field of Physics, Biophysics or Engineering (PhD 1), or Chemistry or Biochemistry (PhD 2) (completed before the contract starting date)
  • Multidisciplinary qualifications (Physics/Bio, Engineering/Bio etc.). Knowledge of Atomic Force Microscopy (PhD 1) or DNA Nanotechnology (PhD 2) 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
