A postdoctoral position is available in the area of Protein-engineering and Structural Characterization of Hybrid Systems.
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 hybrid structures. The candidate will focused mostly on obtaining structural insights on these novel protein-based hybrid systems. These systems will include protein scaffods functionalized with organic molecules, carbon nanomaterials, metallics nanoparticles and nanoclusters among others.
