Doctoral position in physics with focus on characterization of protein-based artificial molecular motors
Work duties: develop and improve, based on fundamental biophysical principles, solutions to detect and control nanoscaled stepwise movements of passive motor-types. The long-term goal is to research motility of autonomous, ATP-driven motor types. The molecules are artificial protein motors and will be provided by collaboration partners.

Thus, the project tasks are to
- Develop a fluorescence-based method to detect individual steps of motors at nm-scale precision,
- Use this to optimize and characterize the motor while it moves along a defined DNA track.
Methods may include bioanalytical and biochemical methods, fluorescence microscopy, TIRF, microfluidics, surface modification, nanofabrication, and image analysis.
The PhD position is in the research groups of Prof. Heiner Linke at the department of solid state physics and Assoc. Prof. Peter Jönsson at the department of physical chemistry, both at Lund University.
Application deadline: June 23, 2021
Post-doctoral position in theory of superconductor-semiconductor hybrid structures
Work duties: The project will focus on theoretical descriptions of semiconductor nanostructures with proximity-induced superconductivity and of the special bound states that appear in such systems, including both conventional Andreev bound states and topological Majorana bound states. In particular, we will explore the interface between the physics of superconductor-semiconductor hybrids and quantum thermodynamics. One aspect is to find ways to use the unique properties of superconductor-semiconductor hybrids for quantum thermodynamics studies, another aspect is to use quantum thermodynamic methods and protocols to investigate the properties of superconductor-semiconductor hybrids.
Application deadline: prolonged until June 23, 2021
