A postdoctoral position is available in the area of protein-based functional materials and devices. The project is in the framework of an ERC Consolidator Grant (ProNANO) focused on the development of a modular versatile platform for the fabrication of protein-based hybrid functional nanostructures for their use in different applications including molecular electronics, optical plasmonics, bioorganic catalysis, and photoactive systems among others. It involves the design and functionalization of protein scaffolds to obtain functional materials and devices. The candidate will focused on the fabrication of the materials and devices using already characterized functional protein-based units. For this purpose, the candidate will need to test and optimized the properties of the bioinpired componenets for their integration in proof-of-concept devices and their validation.
