The role holder will work in the groups of Profs Anne-Kathrin Duhme-Klair and Keith Wilson in the Department of Chemistry, in collaboration with Dr Steven Johnson in the Department of Electronic Engineering. The project is funded by the EPSRC (UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) to develop modular and recyclable artificial metalloenzymes that combine the reactivity of synthetic organometallic catalysts with the selectivity and biocompatibility of proteins. Key components of the role are the immobilisation of artificial metalloenzymes on solid supports, substrate screening, product analysis, and the optimisation of reaction conditions, followed by incorporation of the immobilised enzymes in continuous flow systems.
The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest and most successful departments at York and we are renowned internationally for our research. As a department, we strive to provide a working environment that allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We are proud of our Athena SWAN Gold Award.
