We constantly offer a variety of soft matter research projects for Bachelor's and Master's Theses, also for food chemists. If you are interested, please contact

Biological and synthetic soft matter has a remarkable ability to self-assemble into larger, complex and even functional structures solely using non-covalent interactions (e.g. electrostatic and hydrophobic forces). Dariush Hinderberger's research group uses electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy  as its main research tool to study soft matter from the underlying  fundamental interactions to more applied questions. The research has  gained a special focus on complex biomedical questions (e.g. transport  proteins or intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP)) and applications  (e.g. smart systems for drug delivery).

EPR spectroscopy is a magnetic resonance method  that is sensitive to molecular motions from the pico- to microsecond  regime and to distances between 0.1 and ~8 nanometers. EPR is  complemented by other methods of physical investigation like NMR and IR spectroscopy, electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and dynamic  light scattering (DLS), and by synthetic chemistry, which allows a  unique approach to study these classes of complex materials.

We have a variety of different research projects for Master's and Bachelor's students, and potentially for PhD-students and postdocs! If you are interested in our research or in joining the group you may always .
