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]

Hollow DNA-Based Hybrid Nanostructures for Optimized Optical Sensing


Aim of this project is the development of hollow DNA-based hybrid nanostructures for optimized optical sensing applications (SERS, fluorescence spectroscopy) and analyte molecule trapping/manipulation. The position is located at the department Molecular Biophysics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ralf Seidel. The project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Networks HORIZON-MSCA-DN-2021 project called DYNAMO. [details]
