Thermal Ratcheting Hybrid DNA-Orgami Plasmonic Structures and Nanopores

The project aims at designing hybrid DNA-origami plasmonic structures to provide a reversible local melting of DNA for conformational control of larger DNA origami structures. The targeted systems shall allow in the long run the design of nanopore systems that have a fast switchable permeability and trapping capability for objects in the nanopore. In combination with multiparticle plasmonic coupling and electrokinetic driving this could lead to controlled ratchet-like translocation of objects through the nanopore. The project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Networks HORIZON-MSCA-DN-2021 project called DYNAMO. [details]

Soft Matter Physics of Biofilms

We are currently seeking a PhD candidate to study bacterial biofilm dynamics using live cell laser scanning microscopy, real-time chemical monitoring, and simulations. The project is part of a research collaboration aimed at developing sustainable hybrid living materials to sequester greenhouse gases. The PhD position is jointly supervised by Frank Cichos (Molecular Nanophotonics) and Oskar Hallatschek (Evolutionary Dynamics and Biophysics) at the Peter Debye Institute for Soft Matter Physics.
