Postdoctoral researcher for biomolecular condensates
The Biochemical Engineering Laboratory at the Institute of Chemical and Bioengineering is seeking two highly motivated Postdoctoral researchers for biomolecular condensates associated with cellular compartmentalization in functional and dysfunctional biology.
Within the frame of a European project the candidate will establish, analyse and engineer synthetic models of biomolecular condensates formed by liquid-liquid phase separation of proteins and nucleic acids.
By applying cutting-edge biophysical and biochemical technologies, the candidate will investigate the correlation between phase separation and biochemical reactions occurring within the compartments. Key aspects will be the characterization of the material properties of the condensates and how compartmentalization affects i) enzymatic reactions and ii) amyloid formation.
You have a PhD in biophysics, biochemistry, biochemical engineering or a related subject, excellent academic qualifications and strong self-motivation. Previous experience with enzymes or amyloids in a biological context is appreciated.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents:
- publication list,
- a statement on your motivation,
- a short description of past and present research experience and research interests (in English)
- contact details for at least two academic references.
Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
