PhD Positions in cell/enzymes biosynthetic cascades
|Sub Research Field:
1 PhD position is available in the framework of the BIOCOMPLASUP project funded by the AEI. The project is focused on the immobilization of transaminases on the surface of different bacteria through single-cell encapsulation techniques
The tasks of the PhD projects involve:
1. The engineering of bacteria wall to enable enzyme immobilization
2. Immobilization of tagged enzymes on the bacteria wall
3. Functional and structural characterization of hybrid biocatalysts
The PhD candidates are expected to work in multi-disciplinar experimental plan that will train her/him in protein engineering, material chemistry, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy, organic chemistry and process engineering.
The projects will be carried out at the heterogeneous biocatalysis laboratory of CIC biomaGUNE under the supervision of Dr. Fernando López Gallego. CIC biomaGUNE is a vibrant multidisciplinary and international research institute located at San Sebastian, Spain.
