Nano-Analytics of Cellular Systems
From molecular dynamics, recognition and organization to membrane transport and motility
A highly interdisciplinary graduate college funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), titled Nano-Analytics of Cellular Systems (NanoCell), has the major goal to train next generation multidisciplinary graduates for frontier research in life- and cellular nano-science. Its scientific aim is to span the gap between the process of molecular recognition and structural rearrangements on the one side, and membrane transport and cell motility on the other.
The educational and research program integrates a broad basis of scientific and technological fields related to biophysics, cell biology, nanotechnology, applied physics, theoretical physics, bioorganic and inorganic chemistry, structural and molecular biology, mathematic modelling, and scientifc computing. Participating institutions are: Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU), Institute of Science and Technology (IST), and Vienna University of Technology (TUW). Selected PhD students will be employed for at least 3 years with a contract that includes social benefits. They will be encouraged to spend one semester abroad joining other collaborating laboratories. All selection procedures, training activities, and communication will be in English.
