Postdoctoral Researcher Position to Develop a Solid-state Photosynthetic Bioproduction Platform

University of Turku

Turku, Finland

Project description

The research project aims to design and construct efficient CO2 and light capturing 3D assemblies of photosynthetic microorganisms (cyanobacteria and microalgae) and lignocellulosic building blocks. Such assemblies will demonstrate the proof-of-concept of solid-state photosynthetic cell factories with significantly improved production efficiency of target chemicals. The research project is funded by the EU FET-open program as a part of the FuturoLEAF research consortium and will be conducted in close collaboration with Graz University (Austria) and material scientists from Aalto University (Finland) VTT Oy (Finland) and Centre national de la recherche scientifique (France).

Job description

The Postdoctoral Researcher will:

  • develop strategies for cell immobilization;
  • design and print the 3D architecture;
  • construct photosynthetic production strains using synthetic biology tools;
  • evaluate the performance of the production platform and fitness of confined strains using different analytical techniques and advanced approaches for studies of photosynthetic machinery.

Requirements

The applicant should hold a PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, biotechnology or related field. Excellent academic performance and a demonstrated knowledge of written and spoken English are required. Prior working experience with cyanobacteria or algae is not obligatory requirement, but a plus. The applicant is expected to work independently and to have excellent interpersonal skills.
