This post is available autumn 2019/first half of 2020 for an initial fixed term period of 18 months with the possibility of an extension for a further 11 months.
The College wishes to recruit a PDRA/PDRF in stochastic thermodynamics theory to support the work of Prof Janet Anders in an ambitious theory-experiment project together with Prof Frank Vollmer and other team members.
This role is part of the UKRI funded Molecular Mechanics Initiative at the University of Exeter. This is a cutting-edge research programme that aims to advance the detection and manipulation of conformal changes of enzymes to the single-molecule level. The programme will develop novel laser sensing and molecular mechanics analysis capabilities, that will help unravel nature’s design principles for nanomachines. Theoretical methods from stochastic thermodynamics will be used, and suitably generalised, to rationalise the sensor measurements.
