Subjects Chemistry, Biochemistry Description The department of “Inorganic Spectroscopy” is presently looking for a candidate for a PhD student position (m/f/div) in biochemistry and inorganic spectroscopy. The position is available immediately. The doctoral researcher will work on a 3-year-doctoral-program and the postdoctoral position is initially for 12 months, with the possibility of two additional one-year renewal. The successful candidate will be supervised by Prof. Serena DeBeer and will work closely with the “Metalloenzyme mechanistic explorations” research team headed by Dr. Kushal Sengupta.
Your tasks: The Department of Inorganic Spectroscopy at MPI CEC provides a unique environment, which brings together state-of-the-art experimental approaches with theory to understand challenging question in energy research. The appointed researcher will be involved in the protein purification, biochemical and bio-physical experiments and spectroscopic characterization (including EPR and X-ray based techniques). The researcher will also take part in analyzing the data and preparing scientific publications.
Your qualifications: For the PhD position, we require the Master's degree certificate in chemistry or biochemistry, and for the postdoctoral position, we also require the PhD degree in chemistry or biochemistry. The candidate should have a strong background in biochemistry with an interest to learn spectroscopy or should have a strong background in inorganic spectroscopy and openness to learn biochemistry.
Our offer: We offer an international, dynamic working environment in a renowned research institute, family-friendly jobs and flexible working hours. The PhD will be remunerated according to the Max Planck Society´s funding guidelines for junior scientists and the postdoctoral position according to TVöD (Bund) in line with your qualifications and professional experience.
