Reaction-site Coupling in Complex Metalloenzymes
We are offering a PhD position at the BIG-NSE graduate school of the Einstein Center of Catalysis (EC2). The PhD project will deal with the investigation of reaction-site coupling in complex multifunctional metalloenzymes, using mainly (vibrational) spectroscopic methods. More details about the project can be found here, and the application process is descibed on the BIG-NSE website (start date of the project: October 2021, application deadline: 15 January 2021). The project will be part of the Cluster of Excellence Unifying Systems in Catalysis (UniSysCat) and co-supervised by Marius Horch and Ingo Zebger. Suitable applicants should have a solid track record in (vibrational) spectroscopy, (physical) bioinorganic chemistry, and/or biophysics. Experience with lasers or theoretical methods for the calculation of vibrational spectra is beneficial. If you are interested in the position or have questions about the project, please contact Marius Horch or Ingo Zebger before applying via the BIG-NSE application portal.
In addition, we are always looking for motivated students and colleagues with an interest in experimental and theoretical biophysics, catalysis research, or bioinorganic systems. Please send requests to email@example.com.
