Work duties: develop and improve, based on fundamental biophysical principles, solutions to detect and control nanoscaled stepwise movements of passive motor types. The long-term goal is to research motility of autonomous, ATP-driven motor types. The molecules are artificial protein motors and will be provided by collaboration partners.

• Develop a fluorescence-based method to detect individual steps of motors at nm-scale precision,
• Use this to optimize and characterize the motor while it moves along a defined DNA track.
Methods may include bioanalytical and biochemical methods, fluorescence microscopy, TIRF, microfluidics, surface modification, nanofabrication, and image analysis.
