Postdoc Position in Infrared Diffusion-Ordered Spectroscopy at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands

We have developed a device to simultaneously characterize molecular structure and size by combining microfluidic technology with infrared spectroscopy (both conventional and nonlinear). This device produces two- and three-dimensional spectra, in which the different species present in a solution are separated based on their infrared frequencies and their size: InfraRed Diffusion-Ordered SpectroscopY (IRDOSY). We have already carried out proof-of-concept experiments and built a functional model of the device, see

 In this project, you will develop IR-DOSY into an effective, non-invasive, and easy-to-use lab tool to simultaneously characterize molecular structure and size, and investigate its applicability to study a wide range of systems, including amyloids, supramolecular cages, and polymers.
