Postdoctoral researcher position (f/m/d)

100%, two years

The position is part of the ERC project PHOTOMECH, which is focused on research in the field of molecular systems engineering at the interface of mechanobiology and biomaterials. Here, we look for a researcher experienced with nonlinear optics for setting up a 3D multiphoton microscopy system with pulsed lasers. With this setup mechanisms of mechanoresponsive cell adhesion shall be studied. We offer a creative and inspiring environment for experimental approaches and interesting research. Moreover, we highly encourage and provide opportunities for new ideas and projects. The group is embedded in the Flagship Initiative Engineering Molecular Systems at Heidelberg University, which also offers an active young scientist network and thus a lot of potential to develop future research directions.

Tasks:

  • Design, planning and realization of a multiphoton microscopy system based on pulsed lasers
  • Data analysis
  • Presentations on conferences and publications in peer-reviewed journals
  • Supervision of (PhD) students
  • General tasks in research and teaching in molecular systems engineering
  • Planning and execution of collaborations with external partners.
  • Your qualifications:

  • Master degree (or equivalent) and doctoral degree in (bio)physics, optics or related disciplines
  • Profound experience with nonlinear optics and setting up optical setups
  • Experience with organizing and conducting research projects and scientific publications
  • Interest and experience to work in an interdisciplinary research field
  • Creativity and ideas for new and unconventional solutions
  • Very good English language skills, very good communication skills
  • Strong (self-)motivation, commitment, ability to work independently as well as in a team
  • The salary corresponds to the level of E 13 TV-L of the German public service salary scale.
