PhD or Postdoctoral Position in Chemical Synthesis of Small-Molecule Fluorescent Probes for Optical Nanoscopy (f/m)
PhD or Postdoctoral Position in Chemical Synthesis of Small-Molecule
Fluorescent Probes for Optical Nanoscopy (01/2019)
The Department of Optical Nanoscopy (Prof. Dr. Stefan W. Hell) at the
Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, Heidelberg, invites applications
for a Ph.D. or Postdoctoral position dedicated to the development
of fl uorescent probes for far-field optical imaging beyond the diff raction
resolution limit of light. This breakthrough accomplishment earned Stefan
W. Hell a Nobel Prize in Chemistry (2014).
The project aims at developing the appropriate synthetic methodology
and preparation of novel fluorophores and small-molecule fluorescent
probes suitable for imaging in living cells and tissues using the latest nanoscopy
approaches such as STED and MINFLUX. The evaluation of the
probes will be performed in close collaboration with the physicists and
biologists from the Department of Optical Nanoscopy at the MPI for Medical
Candidates should have an excellent track record, high motivation, broad
scientific interests and will join a multidisciplinary and international
team. They should hold at least a Master's (Ph.D. or equivalent for postdoctoral
candidates) degree in chemistry, with emphasis on synthetic
organic chemistry, and enjoy working in the lab. Practical experience
with metal complex catalysis, C-H activation chemistry, photochemistry,
electrochemistry or computational chemistry will be highly appreciated.
The working language of the project will be English. We off er excellent
laboratory facilities tailored to the needs of the project. Payment is based
on the TVöD guidelines.
Ph.D. candidates will have the opportunity to participate in one of several
interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs in collaboration with the University of
Heidelberg or Göttingen and learn new skills in adjacent disciplines. The
position is limited to three years with a possibility of extension. Exceptionally
qualified applicants may be considered for membership in the
Max Planck School "Matter to Life" (see
www.maxplanckschools.org/matter-to-life), a new elite
graduate program that comes with a salary equivalent of a full position.
For postdoctoral applicants, the position is limited to two years with a
possibility of extension.
At the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research,
one of the 83 institutes of the Max
Planck Society for the Advancement of Science,
physicists, chemists and biologists
create knowledge of long-term relevance
to life and basic medical sciences.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing
the number of individuals with disabilities
in its workforce and therefore encourages
applications from such qualified
individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck
Society seeks to increase the number of
women in those areas where they are underrepresented
and therefore explicitly encourages
women to apply.

Please submit your application, including
a cover letter (explaining background
and motivation), your CV, complete
transcripts (for Ph.D. applicants) or
past research summary with a list of publications
