Time-resolved serial crystallography


This project will extend the method of serial femtosecond crystallography using X-ray free-electron lasers and synchrotron radiation facilities to investigate the dynamics of proteins induced by novel triggers, such as terahertz radiation or photo-acoustic waves. The candidate will have a unique opportunity to work on forefront research at advanced X-ray facilities as well as develop and test new experimental methods in the laboratory. The project combines experimental physics, structural biology, and computational analysis. We are therefore searching for a candidate with a strong interest in multidisciplinary research.
