A PhD position is available in the group of Prof. Aitziber L. Cortajarena (Biomolecular Nanotechnology Lab) at CIC biomaGUNE (San Sebastian) within the European FET-Open Project e-Prot
“Engineered conductive proteins for bioelectronics”. This project will be focused on the development of efficient conductive protein systems for novel green and substaineable conductive materials. This collaborative interdisciplinary project exploits the potential of protein engineering to encode electron and proton conduction in a protein system with self-assembly properties. The project focuses on the design and characterization of robust proteins, with optimized electronic and ionic conductivity. The project is highly multidisciplinary and combines research involving biochemistry, protein engineering, protein chemistry, bionanotechnology, and materials science.
