Offer Description

The postdoctoral position starts in April-May 2024 at the Enzymology and Applied Biocatalysis Research Center  from Babes-Bolyai University for a period of 1+ 1 (extension possibility) year. The postdoctoral fellow will work in close relationship with Prof. Dr. Csaba Paizs, the institutional coordinator of the project. Gross salary will range from 2900 to 3500 EUR depending on the experience of the candidate.

The project:aims to develop develop affinity-based, non-covalent enzyme immobilization methods, which enable the recovery of the carrier and of the embedding polymer from the exhausted biocatalyst for reuse with a new portion of the enzyme. The production and modification of nanocarriers for advanced biocatalysts and their use in continuous-flow microreactors is also envisaged.

Applications: candidates with Ph.D degree and expertise related to enzyme immobilization, support development for immobilization and/or continuous-flow catalysis are encouraged to apply. Experience/skills in characterization of immobilized enzyme preparation / supports by electron microscopy, zeta-potential measurements, FT-IR, reaction monitoring by HPLC, continuous-flow operations are highly advantageous. Strong motivation, intellectual curiosity, communication skills (written and spoken – English) are mandatory.
