Language requirements
Participants should be fluent in both written and spoken English. Applicants from countries where English is not the language of instruction need to have obtained a score of at least 550 on the TOEFL test (or a score of at least 213 on a computer TOEFL test) or provide proof of an equivalent test or provide proof that part of their education was in English.
Academic requirements
PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry or Biology
Max available positions
Advanced biophysical research in the framework of a new collaborative research center (CRC1078, see The collaborative research center provides training and a vivid research environment in experimental and theoretical biophysics that is well suited for promoting an academic career in molecular biophysics. The research project could involve time-resolved tracking of protein function in photoynthetic water splitting after excitation with nanosecond Laser pulses employing infra-red and other spectroscopic methods. A focus on molecular biology (site-directed mutagenesis of photosynthetic proteins) is possible only, if the previous training provides a basis for this direction.
