Introduction

This project is to develop the unique capabilities offered by the RIKEN-RAL muon facility in Oxfordshire, UK. Implanting negative muons results in X-ray emission which is element dependent and therefore the energy and intensity of such peaks can result in the determination of the elemental composition. These X-rays have large energies (~MeV) therefore probing beneath the surface is entirely possible, making this a novel and potentially powerful non-destructive probe. Alongside the instrument development we propose a broad science program, from cultural heritage to bio-materials to energy related materials.

Currently, elemental analysis commonly uses X-ray and electron beams which are good for measuring surfaces, how¬ever a significant advantage of muonic X-rays over those of electronic X-rays is their higher energy (0.01-6 MeV) due to the mass of the muon and there sensitivity to light atoms. These high energy muonic X-rays are emitted from the bulk of the samples without significant photon self-absorption.

Job description

Project aims
The main part of this project will be to develop data analysis for negative muon experiments. This will include GEANT4 simula¬tions on muon implantation depth. Delivering a simplified data reduction and correction software, data visualisation within MANTID (includ¬ing importing the shape of the sample and transforming the acquired data from a series of measurements at different orientations relative to the incident beam into a 3D voxel mapping). This will also include incorporating GEANT4 simulations. Finally, but by no means least, we need to determine the limitations of the technique. In order to aid the development of the technique, three science themes will be investigated: cultural heritage, energy materials and engineering.
Ancient coins have been obtained from the University of Oxford as part of a program of research to study the circulation of gold around the Roman Empire. Here, the question is to determine in a completely non-destructive way the com-position of each coin, which can be difficult to achieve with other more surface-sensitive techniques because of surface enrichment/deterioration due to either natural corrosion processes or deliberate deception. This experiment will form part of a round-robin set of measurements using several of the more conventional techniques for elemental analysis.

Job description

Job description/ Project description:

We offer a three–year Postdoctoral research position in the Soft Matter group at the Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo under the supervision of Associate Professor Reidar Lund.
Nature creates materials through self-assembly processes, i.e. by spontaneous organization of molecules into well defined, but often dynamic structures. As has been increasingly more recognized in recent years, self-assembly is not purely thermodynamically controlled, it can also be limited by kinetic processes. Kinetic pathways, and manipulation of these, are essential for fabrication of defined nano-assemblies in many of the same ways familiar from chemical reactions. In many biomolecular assemblies – such as in lipid membranes, kinetic processes often play a key role for their function, e.g. in signaling processes, intra-cellular trafficking etc. An understanding of molecular exchange and diffusion processes are also important for drug delivery systems based on self-assembled materials.
In this project, we will study kinetic processes of self-assembly at, and out of equilibrium using mainly scattering techniques based on X-ray, neutron and light. The work will include investigations of typical nucleation & growth processes involved in the formation of polymeric nanoparticles/micelles, exchange kinetics in peptide assemblies as well as the dynamics of self-healing polymeric hydrogels. A particular focus will be directed towards problems related to encapsulation and entrapment of pharmaceutically or biologically active compounds. The candidate is expected to actively use instrumentation for studying rapid kinetic processes such as the newly acquired stopped-flow apparatus coupled with light and X-ray scattering and take active part in the preparation, execution and data evaluations from synchrotron/neutron experiments at international and national sources. The tasks will also include rheological investigations, in particular studies of the relation between microscopic dynamics with macroscopic mechanical properties, and extensive theoretical modelling of experimental data.

The fellowship period is 3 years, with 10 % compulsory work. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Starting date no later than 01.10.2017. No one can be appointed for more than one specified period at the same institution.

The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in top academic positions within their disciplines.

Please also refer to the regulations pertaining to the conditions of employment for post-doctoral fellowship positions:

Job description

Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship on a combined computer simulation, experimental and modelling study of human acetylcholinesterase. HAChE is an enzyme that catalyzes the decomposition of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine into choline and acetate and stops in this way the stimulus for muscular contraction. The idea of the project is to capture the essential features of the dynamics of this enzyme, as well as their changes due to the binding of an inhibitor, by minimal models for protein dynamics, which have been developed in the group over the last years. For this purpose experimental information will be gathered from quasielastic neutron scattering experiments, which gives an averaged view of single atom motions in a protein, and THz spectroscopy, which probes its collective dynamics. Molecular dynamics simulations will serve to establishing a link between experimental data and theoretical models. The experiments will be conducted in close collaboration with Prof. Judith Peters at the Institut Laue- Langevin in Grenoble and with the scientists of the AILES beam line at the Synchrotron SOLEIL in St Aubin, 25 km south of Paris. The candidate will benefit from excellent working conditions, in particular from longstanding experience in the group with computer-aided modelling of experimental data on protein structure and dynamics and from top class experimental environments.

Employer
Institut Max von Laue – Paul Langevin (ILL)
Location

Grenoble, France

Introduction

Introduction An ANR-funded PhD position is available as part of an international collaboration project between the Universities of Tübingen (Germany) and Grenoble (France) as well as the Institut Max von Laue – Paul Langevin (ILL), equally in Grenoble. In a context of great fundamental biophysical interest, the ANR-part of the jointly DFG-ANR-funded collaboration will address the dynamics of proteins in aqueous solutions. The important control parameters of the samples are the concentration of proteins and other macromolecules in the solution (“crowding”), the charge state of the solution induced by salt ions, and the temperature. By systematically tuning these parameters, complex solution phase diagrams can be explored. These involve dynamic or static protein clusters, liquid-liquid phase separation and gelation regimes, and possibly crystallization. The aim of the project is to contribute to a fundamental physical understanding of these phase diagrams with the prospect of establishing a rational choice of pathways for protein cluster and crystal formation. The model protein at the center of this project is immunoglobulin (gamma-globulin). In view of the peculiar three-lobed conformation of these antibody proteins, the project will in particular be guided by the role of the protein shape. The crowding will be induced both via so-called self-crowding by varying the concentration of the target protein, as well as by external crowding using other proteins or other (deuterated) macromolecules, including e.g. bovine serum albumin and poly(ethylene glycol).

Description of Institution

The ANR project will be located in Grenoble and be part of the above-mentioned larger scientific collaboration that involves the ILL and the Institut Interdiscipliniare de Physique in Grenoble as well as, for the DFG-funded part of the collaboration, the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Tübingen (Germany) (groups of Profs. F. Schreiber and M. Oettel). The ANR-funded PhD position is associated with the ILL graduate school and the very attractive employment conditions of the ILL for PhD students.

Job description

Job description and Requested Profile The principal experimental method for this project consists in high-resolution neutron spectroscopy. Experiments will be carried out at the ILL as well as at other neutron scattering facilities worldwide, depending on beam time applications to be submitted in the course of the project. The data analysis requires a strong interest in theory, mathematics, and testing of biophysical models. Moreover, programming, including numerical optimization using e.g. python or MATLAB, will be required. In addition, relatively simple biophysical sample preparations and complementary experiments including e.g. dynamic light scattering and small-angle x-ray scattering will be carried out. The project furthermore requires regular travels not only to various neutron scattering facilities but also to project partner meetings. The PhD project will closely interact with a postdoctoral project that is equally part of the international collaboration and that will focus on the theory and simulations by modelling inter alia the structure factors, patchy attractions, and diffusion coefficients.
