This project is to study the protein diffusion and interactions in cell membranes. It will be combined with single molecule fluorescence technology to track the molecules using high resolution microscopes.

Requirements

  • Experiences in modeling particle diffusion
  • Knowledge about membrane and proteins
  • Programming skills

The position is for more advanced graduate students or postdoctoral fellows.

Benefits will be competitive and match the corresponding experiences.

Richard Feynman

“everything that is living can be understood in terms of the jiggling and wiggling of atoms”.

and now, we want to watch atoms jiggling and wiggling.

X-rays, electrons, fluorescence light, the advances of photon sciences, together with computational modeling, are making this happen.
