Single Molecule Detection and Sizing using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

In addition, we are looking for suitably qualified, high-achieving* graduate students to tackle this DP project.

We are exploring the use of AFM as a nano mechanical resonator for determination of the molecular mass of single nanoscale objects. This is an Australian Research Council funded Discovery Grant (2016-2019). This is a collaboration with Prof John Sader (Applied Maths) and colleagues at MIT and CalTech in the USA. We seek graduate students interested in AFM. A postdoctoral position for 12-18 months is available (2017-2018).

* Australian students with H1 degree in chemistry, physics, maths or materials science or overseas students who can secure IPRS (MIFRS) scholarships.
