15.02.2018: Master position on Brillouin spectroscopy in Heidelberg
The group of Thomas Greb (University of Heidelberg) is looking for a talented Master student in physics or engineering who is interested in the establishment/implementation of Brillouin Microscopy for studying extracellular matrices of cells. Brillouin microscopy has recently been introduced into biological sciences as a contact-free imaging technique for determining mechanical properties of living sub-cellular structures.

Embedded in the international research consortium ‘BioBrillouin’, the student will focus on the establishment of a Brillouin microscopy setup at Heidelberg University for the comparison of different elastic moduli determined in a specific set of biological samples. During the project, the student will have the possibility to visit other labs within the consortium and get exposed to distinct expertise around this emerging technology. Especially, the labs of Kareem Elsayad (VBC, Vienna) and Robert Prevedel (EMBL, Heidelberg) will provide teaching and hands-on experience on the technology.

Successful applicants will have outstanding communication skills, and be capable of working independently in a goal-oriented manner. Experience in working with open optical setups and programming in Lab Matlab is a plus. Candidates should send their personal details including a motivation letter and a CV to
Reviewing of applications will be continued until a suitable candidate is found.
