SO = Scientific Objectives;
TO = Training Objectives.
SO1: High-resolution X-ray structures of membrane proteins through nano-crystallography.
SO2: New phasing methods based upon high-intensity diffract-and-destroy ultrafast nano-crystallography.
TO1: Training in coherent X-ray optics, diffraction, and inverse problems
TO2: Training in the use of state-of-the-art X-ray sources.
TO3: Training in scientific computing software development.
Collaborate in the development of merging coherent nanocrystal diffraction patterns to attain accurate and complete structure factors for structure determination. Phasing method will be developed and tested on simulated and experimental data both in a structural biology context and that of atomic physics. The ESR will utilise high-performance computer clusters at DESY and take part in experiments at LCLS and other X-ray sources and be trained in X-ray diffraction analysis, coherent diffractive imaging and phase retrieval:
Involvement with other tasks: The ESR will assist others with the development of on-line diagnostics and measurement techniques for nano-crystallography and single-particle imaging.
Local Training: This ESR will be enrolled as a PhD student at the University of Hamburg as part of Graduate schools in the Department of Physics and Biochemistry. Additional training is provided by the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, which is partner in an International Max Planck Graduate Program.Publications
