Postdoctoral Position in Development of Molecular Factories based on Microfluidics Technology

Postdoctoral Position in Development of Molecular Factories based on Microfluidics Technology

University of Basel

Basel, Switzerland

We invite candidates to submit applications for a PostDoc position in a joint project between the nanoscience-oriented physical chemistry groups of Professor Wolfgang Meier and Cornelia Palivan, Department of Chemistry, at the University of Basel, Switzerland. The position is for one year, with possible prolongation up to two years.

Your position

The overall aim of this project is the development of molecular factories with compartments-in compartments architecture: nanometer-sized compartments loaded with active compounds (catalysts, enzymes, mimics) will be encapsulated inside synthetic microcompartments by a double emulsion microfluidics approach. The project intends to design new microfluidics chips to support generation of compartments-in-compartments with desired properties and allowing cascade reactions between the bio-loaded nano-compartments. A particularly important part of the project will intend in situ structural and functional characterization of the molecular factories to support their potential for advanced catalysis or medical applications.

This is an interdisciplinary project from which you will gain valuable experience in the domain of nanoscience, physical chemistry, biochemistry and microfluidics approaches. Your role will be to adapt or design new microfluidics chips for production of compartments-in-compartments and combination of thereof with active compounds, to control the reactions inside and resulting functionality for efficient generation of molecular factories.

Your profile

  • you will ideally have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or material science;
  • experience in microfluidics set-up is a must;
  • experience to combine colloidal systems with biomolecules and characterize them by physical-chemistry methods is a must;
  • high records of publications in internationally refereed scientific journals
  • proficiency in English; German is an advantage.
